IF YOU’RE NAUGHTY … HERE’S A GUIDE HOW TO FLOSS

  • Break off about 18″ of floss  and wind most of it around one of your middle fingers
  • Wind the remaining floss around the same finger of the other hand … this finger will take up the floss as it becomes used
  • Hold the floss tightly (without any slack) between your two hands, with about an inch of floss between them
  • Guide the floss between your teeth using a gentle sawing motion
  • When the floss reaches the gumline, curve it into a C-shape against the tooth
  • Gently slide it into the space between the gum and the tooth until you feel resistance
  • Hold the floss against the tooth and gently scrape the side of the tooth, moving the floss away from the gum
