Tips and Advice on your Dental Floss

Flossing is easy with the proper technique:
  • Wind an 18-inch piece of floss around your middle finger, leaving about 4-inches of floss between them
  • Grasp floss firmly between thumb and index finder of each hand. Gently slide floss between teeth, using a slow sawing motion to slip between tight teeth
  • Move floss up and down against tooth to clean both above and below the gum-line, curving around the tooth for best results
  • Repeat cleaning procedure for each tooth. Every few teeth, move to a clean piece of floss by unwinding floss from one finger and rewinding it onto the other finger
For most patients, flossing should be used before toothbrushing as a part of a Bass Method.
Slide the floss to a new, unused portion for the next tooth surfaces.
Floss may be doubled to provide a wider rubbing surface.
Floss Holder or Double Floss Holder can be helpful for a person with a disability or for a parent or caregiver.
