Hi, I’m Margie. I am a dental hygienist here at www.thegentledentist.com in Shelby Township, Michigan. And I’m gonna show you the correct way to floss your teeth. You’re actually going to start out with a piece of floss that’s about a foot, foot and a half long. And wrap around your middle fingers. That way, you’ll have your index fingers and your thumbs to kinda help guide where you wanna go. What you wanna do is, once you get it between the 2 teeth, wrap around the side of the teeth. So it’s actually like in a C shape. Go all the way down underneath the gum as far as it’ll go. And you can either shoe shine all the way up. o you can go up and down this way, as long as you’ve got the floss wrapped around the side of the tooth.
That’s what you’re aiming for. While you’re in there, we wrap around the tooth right next door. Same idea, shoe shine all the way up, or up and down. You wanna, the whole idea is to wipe the side of the tooth with the floss to remove the plaque.
Again we are in the Shelby Township, Michigan at 586-247-3500, www.thegentledentist.com. Hope to see you soon.
