How to Floss Properly

General & Cosmetic Dentist Serving Austin, Round Rock & Nearby Areas of Texas

TRANSCRIPT: Flossing is a technique that some people think that you just pop the floss in and out. Typically, you want to make sure that when you get that floss in there that you hug the tooth on one side and you almost shoe-shine that back up the edge of the tooth, and then you move the floss a little bit and you move it over to the next tooth and you kind of wrap it around that tooth and you shoe-shine that tooth. And then you pull the floss out, new section, put it back in to the next tooth and you repeat that all the way around.
