Flossing once a day is ideal. Typically before sleeping. The reason being, flossing often increases the gap between the teeth causing a bad bite. And flossing just before sleeping takes away the entire day’s plaque and food particles.
I floss every evening after brushing my teeth to be sure that no food particles, that bacteria can feed on, that sit in my mouth overnight.
You should floss thrice a day. One of those times should be a thorough flossing where you get a little below gumline all around each tooth. the other two times should be following major meals to make sure you remove any food that got stuck
Ideally, you should floss after every meal but I sometimes don't get to do so but I try to floss at least once a day – at the end of the day.
- 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.
