Know your flossing Technics

Expanding floss is a dental hygiene product meant to clean between the teeth. It grows thicker when it comes in contact with moisture, like saliva.

In order to ensure your teeth remain strong and healthy, you should endeavor to floss every day. Dental floss can remove food particles and plaque from places around your teeth that a toothbrush alone cannot reach. Periodontal disease and tooth decay tend to begin from hidden areas around teeth such as where the gums connect to the tooth.

As such, one ought to learn how to floss properly so that one can adequately clean these difficult to reach areas. One should first begin by taking out roughly 18 inches (45 cm) of floss, as that is a good length for you to wrap your fingers around and still have enough string remaining to floss with.

Next, wrap the floss on the middle fingers (and index fingers if you wish) and leave a small section of floss between the fingers that you can then floss with. Manipulate the string between two teeth and perform a gentle back and forth motion.

The string should be brought as low as the gum lines, but refrain from forcing it down any further as that can cause gum damage. Keep the floss in a “C” shape on the side of a tooth and keep performing the sawing motion. This should be performed on each tooth.

You should floss a minimum of once a day, but preferably one should floss after each meal.

And before going to bed, since nighttime is when plaque is actively creating cavity-producing acid in one’s mouth.

Once an individual has developed a good habit of flossing daily, they will no longer have issues like bleeding gums.
