Flossing removes the plaque that a toothbrush can miss but it’s important to floss correctly to avoid damaging teeth and gums.

Key takeaways:

– Focus on flossing between your teeth not the gumline.

– Floss gently with light pressure.

– Floss only once a day unless food is stuck between teeth.

Gums may bleed if you haven’t flossed before but they should not continue to do so. See a dentist if gums always bleed when flossing.

“Schedule a checkup with your dentist to review your flossing techniques to protect and enhance your smile instead of harming it!”
