You should probably floss before brushing your teeth. When you get cleanings done at the dentist they usually floss before they clean your teeth. Brusing after flossing will also help get rid of any plaque clumps that are left from the flossing.
I feel like flossing before brushing because all the clutter that is flushed between the teeth will go away when brushed after.
The research says flossing after you brush is best! The toothbrush dislodges most of the junk, then your floss does the rest.
Before brushing. Flossing for a few minutes will loosen debris and brushing immediately afterwards will remove any remaining debris.
Floss first, then you brush. Flossing cleans between the teeth, and brushing cleans not only the teeth but also removes any remnants left over from the flossing
I always brush first with a excellent electric toothbrush following the quadrant timers. I brush twice a day but I only floss in the morning after brushing. I see my dental hygienist every six months and she always complements me on how perfect my mouth looks
- 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.
