What is the best time to floss?

Posted by Dr. Alicia Abeyta DDS FAGD on Oct 5 2010, 01:41 PM

Flossing your teeth is best done when the teeth are still dry. Some people experience bleeding when they floss, and this only happens when their teeth are too wet. Try to avoid flossing your teeth immediately after eating, and wait until they are dry.

When you brush your teeth, make sure you floss carefully. Don’t just rip the floss between your teeth. Break off about 18 inches of floss and wrap it around your fingers. Use your thumbs and forefingers to guide the floss. Gently slide it between your teeth, making sure you go beneath the gum line.
