If your oral hygiene habits list is devoid of flossing, make the change immediately to include dental floss as an everyday part of your life. The benefits of flossing come with a minimum investment of time along with a guarantee of cleaning your teeth better than you can by brushing alone. To improve your oral health overnight, begin by implementing the following tips in your daily care:

– Always use dental floss or a dental instrument that is ADA-approved or approved by your dentist at Healthy Smiles Dental Care® of Flint.

– The amount of thread you need per sitting is approximately 18 inches in length. Wrap each end around a finger and move up and down the floss as necessary, always using a different section of the floss for each tooth.

– Try to include flossing in your daily oral health care habits by flossing at least once daily.

– Make sure to floss in every gap between every single tooth and behind the back teeth.

– To floss effectively, move your floss gently between each tooth in an up-and-down motion without pressing too hard on the gum line.
