Daily flossing removes plaque along your gumline and between your teeth. Flossing also greatly improves the health of your gums. However, it is important that you floss correctly to ensure effective cleaning. Here are a few tips:
Wind the floss around your middle fingers.
Using your thumbs and index fingers, guide the floss carefully between your teeth.
Make a C shape around each tooth using the floss in order to get between your gums and teeth.
Use a mirror while you floss in order to see your mouth and the condition of your gums. Your gums should be firm and pink.
