How to brush your teeth
How to floss
Start with floss that has "grab" to it
. Anything that doesn't shred also doesn't take the plaque off the teeth. Good old fashioned "name brand" waxed or unwaxed is best.
Wrap the ends of an 18-inch to 24-inch section of floss around your middle fingers
Hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers of both hands
Use your thumbs to floss your upper teeth
. Use your index finger to floss your bottom teeth.
Gently work the floss in between your teeth
When you reach the gum line, curve into a "C" shape around the tooth, making sure to go below the gum line
Gently glide the floss up and down several times between each tooth, including the back sides of your back teeth
Pull the floss against the tooth while flossing
Unwind new floss from one hand to the other as you go, so that you are flossing with a fresh piece of floss
