Flossing is one of the most important things you can do to keep your teeth and gums healthy. If you floss correctly and regularly your chances of developing cavities and periodontal disease, or needing dentures, dental implants, and root canal treatment is greatly reduced. However, most people don’t know how to floss correctly. The video below will explain how to floss your teeth the right way.
Your teeth should be flossed daily to remove the plaque and bacteria that accumulates between the teeth and in the pocket of tissue around the teeth.
The floss is placed between the teeth, and with a gentle motion, is rocked between the tooth and gum tissue to clean within the pocket.
This procedure is repeated for all the teeth in your mouth.
Although this process may seem tedious at first, over time and with practice, it will become a quick and simple way to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
