I usually do after. But thinking about it for a moment, it makes more sense to do before. The order should be; floss, brush, mouth wash. Makes sense to me!
I floss after brushing. I think I do it after because when I go to the dentist to get my teeth clean, they do it after my cleaning.
You gotta floss after brushing in order to get what's left behind. That way the flossing is enhancing your brushing and not they other way around!
Before brushing because I want to get the old stuff out from between my teeth and then give the opportunity to clean with toothbrush. Not only that but when I use mouthwash I can clean in between the teeth better if I floss before everything. Floss, mouthwash, brush always.
- How do you motivate yourself through the first days when flossing is painful?
- When is the best time to floss. Before or after brushing?
- So I put flossing on my list because I tend to forget to floss the most, and not only that but when creating a routine, a habitual routine at that – then it must entail creating a list of healthy habits that you are not used to doing every single day. Like I said I forget to floss alot so does any one else put flossing in their morning routine? (also I’m new at this app so please let me know if I’am using it incorrectly.) I have to ask because I got a sarcastic shithead asking me if I carry floss around in my bag-that kind of crap please keep to yourself.
