How to Floss
Wrap the loss into a "C" shape and in between the spaces between the teeth in an up and down motion. Wipe both sides of the tooth. Repeat.
Place your toothbrush against your gums at a 45 degree angle. Brush back and forth, with a circular motion. Brush the outer surfaces, and then the inner surfaces. Brush the chewing surfaces both on the upper & lower arch. Turn your toothbrush vertically to brush the upper and lower inside front teeth. Don't forget your tongue. Use only a soft toothbrush or electric brush.
Hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers and gently glide the floss in a rubbing motion.
Wrap an 18" piece of floss around your middle finger on one hand, and another finger on the other hand that will take up the used floss.
