Until there is no obstruction! For me, maybe twice each tooth, but if I’ve been eating beef or something I felt get stuck, then I will floss until it’s clear.
Twice, because the first time is to just do it, right? And the second time is to make sure there’s nothing still in there in between the teeth.
You should slide the floss back and forth with pressure against each tooth. You should also go as deep as you can. Try to get underneath the tooth even. When you first do this, there could be a little bleeding, but if you do it daily, this will stop. You will be left with clean teeth and even more importantly, healthy gums.
- 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.
- Is it better to floss before or after you brush your teeth?
- How long does it take for your gums to go back to normal once you start routinely flossing?
- What do you prefer, flossing picks or flossing thread?
- How often do you really floss?
- Is it okay to only floss once a day?
- Do you floss in the morning or at night?
- Do you find that there are some teeth that always have particles stuck in them? And, if so, do you spend more time brushing that area?
