 In this article I will show you the best way to floss including when you should floss. First, I need to show you what to look for when flossing. There are 2 areas or spots that you want the floss to clean.

Where to Floss

The first spot is the direct spot where the 2 teeth contact each other. This is the most common area between the teeth where you will get cavities. No matter how good or bad you floss, any floss will clean this area as long as it snaps through the 2 teeth. The second area is at and below the gumline in between your teeth. This spot will still get cavities but is not as common as the first area. However, that doesn’t mean it is less important to floss here. You see, this is the main spot where gum disease and gingivitis starts. In the long term, this is the spot that, in my opinion, is more important to keep healthy for your gums and the overall health of your body. Both areas are definitely important to keep free of plaque.

Securely Hold the Floss

 Quickly let me explain how to securely hold the floss to get a great grip so you can floss efficiently.

1) Hold the floss in one hand with the thumb and the pinky.

2) Wrap the floss around the bottom two fingers with the floss going down the backside of the fingers and up the palm side.

3) Wrap it two or three times and hold the middle of the floss tightly with thumb and index finger and then let your thumb go of the once loose side.

4) Then do the same thing with the other side of the other hand on the other side of the floss.

Now you can pull it tight, and you should be able to push up with the thumbs. You will use mostly the thumbs for the upper teeth. Then you can switch to press down with the index fingers, and you will do this mostly for the lower teeth. Sometimes I will use the middle finger too. To floss the left side of the mouth, the right-hand fingers you position on the inside of the arch of the teeth. The other hand secures the floss on the cheek side of the teeth or outside of the arch. For example, if it's the top left teeth you are flossing, it will be the right thumb inside the arch of the teeth. If it is the bottom, it will be the right index finger on the inside. This is because the left hand will hold the floss on the cheek side of the tooth. Then when you floss the right side, it is the opposite, so you use the LEFT thumb or index finger on the inside of the arch and right hand on the outside.

When to Floss

In my opinion it is best to floss BEFORE you brush. If you want to see why, watch my video about the sequence of flossing and brushing. The main reason you floss first is that the floss does all the heavy lifting of the plaque IN BETWEEN the teeth. The brush mostly just does the clean up work in between the teeth and brushing away of what the floss dislodged. Also with the plaque removed toothpaste can more adequately fluoridate your teeth.

How to Remove A Lot of Plaque

You don’t want to just snap the floss between the teeth. Although, like I said earlier, that is half the battle. But you can see from the video above that you want to make sure the floss goes below the gumline and wraps around the tooth and then you do little pull up movements that dislodge most of the plaque without pulling and snapping the floss out from between the teeth. THEN you do the same thing on the tooth in front of it this time snapping the floss all the way through. Most of the time this will dislodge a heavy majority of the bacteria colony ALL AT ONCE since you haven’t broken up that biofilm by brushing first. It will move almost all as one unit. Then you simply do this for all the teeth.

Choosing the Best Floss

Now that you know the best technique I will tell you what to look for in the floss. I have linked to  my favorite floss AND brush bere that will get you $30 off with my Burst Promo Code WY36BE. This is the best floss for a few reasons. You see, the floss narrows, expands and flattens. You want the floss to narrow when you pull it tight to get it to snap through the teeth. Then once the floss is between the teeth it slightly expands to get a little better in any concavities you have between your teeth. Lastly, you want it to flatten to increase the surface area that it cleans while it slides against your tooth. Thus it is easily able to dislodge a lot of plaque at once. So i would make sure you get this floss from the link below this video. As you can see from my video it easily dislodges the biofilm or plaque as a whole unit making each stroke of the floss very effective in removing plaque.

Lets cover how often you should floss. It is important to floss at least once every 24 hours. Why? At a minimum it takes 24 hours for the bacteria on your teeth to start the decay process. Now, normally it takes at least 6 months before you get a full on cavity that is noticeable in x-rays, but the process only takes 24 hours to start. However, you don’t ever want that process to start because then the rest of the process becomes so much easier for the decay to progress. The more it progresses the harder it is to stop. If you are constantly disrupting the bacteria once every 24 hours it is very likely that you won’t get a cavity. Its that simple.
