No treatment performed by the dental hygienist will be effective unless you follow the recommendations with routine and proper care. This means you should brush and floss regularly after every meal and at a minimum twice a day. The key is not only to do it regularly but also to do it right. Here’s how.
To floss properly, first, you have to wind the floss around your index fingers of both hands. Then push the floss between your every tooth. Make sure to freely move the floss upwards, downwards and even sideways to remove any food particles or plaque that may be lodged between your teeth or under the gums.
