Flossing

Updated: Dec 3, 2019



Flossing might seem tedious at the start, but once you get the hang of it you can actually do it quite quickly.


Firstly when flossing, make sure you get a decent piece of floss, like Colgate or Oral B.


Then when you tear it off, make sure you get a nice long piece of floss. After you get a nice long piece of floss, wrap them around your middle fingers, nice and tight.

So when you’re doing your front teeth, you shorten it quite a bit. And then when you’re doing your back teeth, you can lengthen the floss. And then you’ve got absolute control over that floss.


When you’re flossing your top teeth, use your thumbs to go up, and your index fingers for the bottom teeth.


When you’re flossing, be sure not to pull the floss down too hard or you can damage your gums. And when you do floss between each tooth, make sure the floss disappears, about 1 to 2mm down one side, come up the other side and then floss down the other side of the tooth.


It shouldn’t take you longer than 30 seconds. At the start, it might take you a couple of minutes, and then after a while, you’ll actually find it more difficult not to floss than to floss. Because after you floss, you feel a sense of cleanliness and hygiene.


Hope that helps you today. Have a great day.
