Do you floss before you brush your teeth or after?

Before! I feel like it loosens up any particles between my teeth, and then when I brush my teeth, it helps pull them away! Not sure if that’s correct… But it sounds good!before!

Before. At my dentist and dental hygienist's suggestion. My understand is that the flossing dislodges anything stuck in between the teeth and then the brushing gets rid on anything on the surface after the particulate is gone.

I floss before I brush. I then use mouthwash after I floss but before I brush. This allows me to floss, then kill germs in areas I just exposed with floss, then brush. I only rinse a little after brushing so that some some of the fluoride stays on my teeth.

I floss my teeth before brushing them. The food and plaque that come off of the teeth during flossing are simply brushed away.
