Gentle and caring teeth & gum health maintenance.

How to floss

It’s one thing to make flossing a part of your dental health care
routine, quite another to do it properly. Your dentist will be able to
instruct you on the correct flossing technique which should involve
the following basic steps:
1. Wind approximately 45 cm of floss around your middle fingers and
grip it tightly between your thumbs and index fingers.
2. Keeping the thumb and index close together, gently guide the floss
between the teeth, taking care not to cut or damage your gums with
abrupt movement.
3. With about 45cm wound around your middle fingers and thumb,
use a gentle up-and-down motion that goes down one side of the
tooth, just under the little collar of gum and then back up the other
side (think of it as an on-the-side “c”).
