 teeth health smile dentistThe universal recommendation in dentistry is that you have to brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis. But how can you know that you are flossing in the recommended way.

Key takeaways:

– Always use a piece of dental floss that is 18 inches long wrapped around a finger on each hand.

– The floss is then rubbed between teeth by moving it back and forth.

– The floss should be pressed firmly against each tooth making sure to slide it up and down against all sides of the tooth before proceeding to the next.

Carefully shape the floss into a C at the gum line, and slide it between the gum and tooth.
