Make Your Flossing Flawless

National Flossing Day

Are you an ace at the art of flossing? Believe it or not, not everyone flosses properly, and some don’t floss at all. But there’s a quick fix for these flossing flaws and they all can be found in the following four tips: 

According to the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, there are only four easy steps to proper flossing:

  1. Wind – Take about 18 inches of floss between your thumbs and index fingers and pull tightly to create a taut strand.
  2. Guide – Your index fingers should lead the floss between the top and bottom of each tooth.
  3. Glide – Move the floss smoothly and gently between teeth in a gliding motion.
  4. Slide – Use a clean section of floss for each tooth and carefully move the floss up and down over the surface of each tooth and under the gumline.

If you don’t like regular floss, try using a hand-held flosser. The technique for flossing is similar to using standard floss, but you just hold the handle of the flosser instead of the stretch of string. There are also electric flossers that also use this technique.

If you need to floss around braces or other dental work, be careful not to let the floss get tangled. You might try using special orthodontic floss or floss threaders that enable you to floss in smaller spaces. Then use the same steps you would with standard floss.

No matter which type of floss you use, it’s important to be gentle to avoid doing damage. If you have any questions on flossing form, ask an expert in family dentistry at Mautner Dentistry for some helpful hints on this healthy habit. And don’t forget that National Flossing Day is coming up on November 29!
