Proper flossing technique


Preston Dental Saskatoon Dental Clinic Services
  1. Use about 18 inches of floss, so you have a clean piece of floss to use on each tooth in the cleaning process.
  2. Curve the floss into a C-shape as you slide it up and down along the side of each tooth.
  3. Don’t forget to floss the back sides of your back teeth on both the left and right of the upper and lower teeth.

Proper brushing and flossing technique as part of your daily oral care routine are the most important components in the fight to keep your teeth plaque free – and protecting your teeth and gums for a lifetime.
