Proper Brushing

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.

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.

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.
