How to Floss Your Teeth Properly

According to the American Dental association, follow the steps outlined:

  1. Use about 18 inches of floss wound around one of your middle fingers, with the rest wound around the opposite middle finger.
  2. Hold the floss tightly between the thumbs and forefingers and gently insert it between the teeth.
  3. Curve the floss into a “C” shape against the side of the tooth.
  4. Rub the floss gently up and down, keeping it pressed against the tooth. Don’t jerk or snap the floss.
  5. Floss all your teeth. Don’t forget to floss behind your back teeth. 

Zip Rings or course eliminates the need to wrap the floss around your fingers and hands and cuts in more than half the amount of floss needed.
