How do I know I’m flossing correctly??

Published on July 1, 2014 by

Flossing is easy once you get in the habit of doing it regularly:

Take approximately 16-18 inches of floss and wrap it around your fingers.

Use your thumb and index finger to gently guide the floss between the teeth and through the contact area.

When you reach the gum line, carefully move the floss up and down against each tooth reaching under the gum.

Readjust the floss to use a clean section for every two teeth.

Initially the gums may bleed, but with regular flossing the health of the gums will improve and the bleeding will stop.
