It's important to floss your teeth everyday, but you need to be aware of a few basic techniques.
- Flossing reaches the places between teeth that your toothbrush can't.
- Always floss before you brush.
- Floss gently, using a clean section between each tooth.
If you are unsure about flossing or your gums bleed every time you floss, make an appointment with your dentist. You may have gum disease, which requires treatment. You can also get instruction on your flossing technique.
