How to Floss Your Teeth

Flossing is an excellent method for cleaning the hard-to-reach spaces between your teeth.  You can significantly complement your brushing activities through flossing.  The minimum frequency in which you should floss is generally once a day although the ideal routine is after every meal.

It is easy to obtain the materials required for flossing.  Simply cut a piece of dental floss and wrap them around your fingers.  You can instantly begin flossing the spaces between your teeth individually.  Avoid damaging your gums as you are flossing to prevent blood from contaminating the material.  Press the floss firmly against the teeth to ensure a thorough result.

Use a lateral motion in flossing your teeth and consistently repeat this process. If you follow a consistent routine, flossing can significantly benefit the health of your smile!
