The key to flossing success is to make sure that you are are the boss of your own teeth. If you fail to take control of your oral health, you will not have the smile you are capable of. This begins with effective flossing and brushing techniques every day.

When flossing, it is important to always use a dental floss that seeks to improve your oral health by cleaning between teeth safely and effectively. Always try to clean between each tooth with a new section of floss. You can easily accomplish this by using a strand about eighteen inches in length. This ensures no section will need to be used more than once.

Use a floss that is shred resistant so it will not tear easily in your mouth. With shred-resistant floss, you can floss effectively without fear of failure. For product recommendations, speak with your dentist or look for the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance, which is featured on products thoroughly reviewed by the American Dental Association and guaranteed to be safe and effective.
