Do you want a top-notch smile and oral health? If so, then you need a top-notch flossing routine. Flossing is very important for the teeth and gums, especially because it helps you prevent dental issues like tooth decay and gum disease. So, to help you have the best flossing routine possible, our dentist is happy to share some handy flossing tricks. Those tricks are:

-Use a gentle sawing motion: If you use this technique to push the floss between the teeth, it reduces your chances of forcing the floss into place and damaging the gums.

-Use flossing tools that are easy to maneuver: When the flossing tool is easy to use, you reduce your chances of being rough with the gums. This helps keep your gums in tip-top shape. So, use tools like flossing sticks, floss threaders and water flossers to clean the crevices of the smile.

-Floss at least once a day: When you floss, you clean between your teeth and gumline. This helps you avoid major dental issues like tooth decay and gum disease. So, make sure to floss daily. If you tend to forget, set reminders for yourself.
