The Secret to Flossing

-Break off about 18 inches of dental floss ,wind most of the floss around the middle finger on one hand and the rest around the middle finger on the other hand. 
-Grip  the floss tightly between your thumbs and  forefingers. —Be gentle ,guide the floss between your teeth using a rubbing-motion . 
-Don’t snap the floss  into your gums . 
-When  the floss reaches your gum line, curve it against one tooth. 
-Floss one tooth at a time .
-Slide the floss into space between your gum and tooth. —Use  the floss to gently rub the side of the tooth in an up-and-down motion. Unwind fresh floss as you progress to the rest of your teeth 
-Try to floss at least once daily.
-Flossing between each and every tooth will go along way in maintaining your good oral health

It’s  a personal preference whether you floss your teeth before or after  you brush. However ; flossing before brushing may allow  fluoride from your toothpaste to reach between your teeth.

Ask your dentist or hygienist if you are  flossing the right way.
