Flossing should be done daily, to prevent plaque build-up and formation of bad bacteria in the mouth. Flossing also helps reach where your toothbrush can’t. Here are some flossing pointers.
– While mild bleeding is normal, excessive blood is a sign you are flossing incorrectly or you have gum disease.
– Always floss using up to 18-inch floss and ensure your sessions last at-least five minutes.
– Floss the sides of your teeth gently, in up and down motions.
Visit the dentist regularly for cleaning and further advice on flossing techniques.
