These tips will help you floss for the best results:
– It is actually better to floss before brushing
– It is recommended that 15-18 inches of floss be used for each session
– It should take about 5 minutes to floss
– See your dentist if your gums bleed when flossing; you may be flossing too aggressively, or you many have gum disease and need treatment.
