Flossing your smile seems like an easy task, but it is easy to misuse a product and not clean your mouth as effectively as you should. In order to effectively clean between each and every tooth, take your time and use gentle, simple strokes with your threaded floss to ensure you are cleaning the areas between each and every tooth. In addition, don’t forget the back row.

In order to ensure your oral health care is functioning as required, use dental floss that will not shred upon us. This includes a single filament strand of floss that is known to be shred-resistant. As an alternative to threaded floss, you can try an alternative interdental cleaner such as a water flosser. Water flossers are highly effective for cleaning teeth using a beam of water instead of floss.

To ensure you are flossing correctly, take your time. Ideally, you should be flossing every single day roughly 2 to 3 minutes per session. To avoid contamination, never use the same strand for more than one place exaction. Go slowly and clean between every single tooth, including the back row. Make sure you reach all areas and sides of each tooth.

To help prevent recontamination from arising, it is important to always make sure you are never using the same section of a strand for more than one tooth. To do so, always use strands that are about 18 “ in length and gently wrap each end of the strand around a finger on each hand. Move up and down the strand as needed.

When the going gets tough, the tough get interdental treatments. Your smile depends on interdental treatments if you truly want to climb to the top of the oral health care ladder.
