Flossing Every Day

Posted .

Flossing every day is essential to ensure that your smile will function as intended. As long as you continue to take care of your smile and promote a healthy and active lifestyle, you can prevent tooth decay and gum disease. However, flossing correctly and with the proper tools will help immensely.

Always make sure you are flossing every single day at least once daily with high-quality dental floss that will not break or fray. One of the most successful products is thread that is single-filament, which is often shred resistant. For additional help, contact your dentist or look for flossing products with the ADA Seal of Acceptance, which guarantees the product has met the highest standards in the industry.

Dental floss techniques should focus on the avoidance of spreading contamination. This means using a new piece of thread between every session and a new section of each thread during every session. Use a strand that is roughly 18 inches in length and can clean between each tooth effectively with a new section in each. For additional dexterity, wrap the floss around your middle finger on each hand.
