Flossing is an important part of our everyday dental care routine because it helps remove food residue from in-between our teeth. Here are important tips on how to floss.

Key points:

– Always use up to 18 inches of floss and move the floss up and down the sides of all your teeth.

– If you regularly bleed during flossing, consult with your dentist to find out if you are flossing correctly.

– Floss for up to 5 minutes, to ensure all residue is removed.

Remember that flossing should be done before brushing.
