The best way to avoid gum disease is daily flossing. It helps remove plaque from all of those areas where a toothbrush doesn’t reach. Flossing works but only if you do it properly.
 
Watch the video below to learn about proper flossing technique.
 
 

We recommend the following four step principles
 
Wind, guide, glide and ultimately slide!
 
1. Wind: Wind roughly 18 inches of floss around middle fingers and carefully use your thumbs to direct floss between teeth.
 
2. Guide: Keep a one- to two-inch length of floss taut between fingers. Use index fingers to appropriately Guide floss between lower teeth.
 
3. Glide: Gently guide floss between the teeth by using a zig-zag motion.
 
4. Slide: Slide floss up and down against the tooth surface and under the gum line. Floss each tooth thoroughly with a clean section of floss.
 
Poor flossing technique can result in complications, and it's important to be thorough yet gentle, especially when flossing.
