How to use dental floss properly

Hello everyone and welcome to today’s topic, which is how to use dental floss properly. This is a very important subject to discuss for various reasons. First is for education, many patients who comes to the clinic do not floss. Other portion that floss, do not do it properly, they end up damaging their gums doing more harm than good. That is why today I am going to share some useful techniques to floss like a pro!

First of all we have to get the proper dental floss. There are many brands and shape in the market, so be sure to pick one with the ADA seal of approval. As for the shape, go for a traditional one, a little box with many feet of floss. You can get those with mint flavor if that is your taste but it is not necessary. Once you got your floss, then you can floss every time you eat, or at least 2 times a day.
