How to Floss your Teeth

(Flossing tips uploaded by Howcast).

These simple steps will help you prevent tooth decay and gum diusease.

  • You will need about a foot and a half of dental floss, a mirror, mouth wash or water.
  • Choose your floss – Waxed floss slides between teeth easier that regular floss.
    If you have wider gaps between your teeth, you can use tape floss which is thicker.
  • Break off about 18 inches of floss, and wrap most of it around your index fingers.
    Leave about 4 inches between your hands.
  • Looking in the mirror, carefully guide the floss between two teeth.
    Curve the floss around a tooth and carefully clean the crevice between tooth and gum.
