Flossing Made Fast and Easy

National Flossing Day

We all find reasons not to floss: from not enough time to too much trouble. But those excuses are just useless since flossing can be swift and simple. By learning from these savvy tips, flossing can fit in your life.

Flossing is easy to do, but it’s also easy to do incorrectly. You need the right proper tools and technique to get the best results. For the best dental benefits, just follow these five steps at least once every day:

  1. Use about 18 inches of floss, holding it tight between your thumbs and index fingers.
  2. Slip the floss between your teeth and move it from the top to the bottom of each tooth.
  3. Curve the floss around the base of every tooth and then carefully slide it beneath the gumline.
  4. Slowly remove the floss so you don’t damage your gums.
  5. Repeat the process for every tooth, using a fresh section of floss for each one.

Now that you know the technique for flossing, you’ll need the right floss. There are two main kinds of floss: nylon and PTFE. Nylon floss comes in unwaxed and waxed versions, and in many flavors. An issue with nylon floss is that it’s prone to shredding and tearing. PTFE, the other kind of floss, doesn’t shred, but may be more expensive. Both styles are recommended by experts in family dentistry in New Baltimore at Gentle Dental of New Baltimore, so choose the type that’s best for you.

Everyone’s talking about flossing now that National Flossing Day is almost here. As you can see, flossing is something we can do easily, and it’s a habit you know you can do well.
