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.
