Facts on Flossing

Brushing is important but it won't remove the plaque and particles of food between your teeth, under the gum line, or under braces. You'll need to floss these spaces at least once a day.

The type of floss you choose depends on how much space you have between your teeth. Dentists usually recommend un-waxed floss because it's thinner and easier to slide through small spaces. However, studies have shown that there is no major difference in the effectiveness based on the type of floss used.

With any floss, you should be careful to avoid injuring your gums.

Follow these instructions:

  • Carefully insert the floss between two teeth, using a back and forth motion. Gently bring the floss to the gum line, but don't force it under the gums. 
  • Curve the floss around the edge of your tooth in the shape of the letter "C" and slide it up and down the side of each tooth. 
  • Repeat this process between all your teeth, and remember to floss the back sides of your back teeth.
