I think it depends on the person. I like using a floss pick as I personally find it easier but it really depends on you.
Recommended by my dentist: Use a long strand of dental floss (not a floss pick) so you can wrap the extra length on each side around your index fingers and use your thumbs to push the floss between your teeth. Be sure to pull the floss towards the tooth that you are flossing when pulling the floss out.
Make a ‘c’ shape around your tooth with the floss and try to move up and down. Avoid yanking the floss down and cutting your gums. Instead carefully shimmy the floss.
I start with my "problem areas ", then go through each tooth one by one so the tighter spaces get the most attention. Hope that makes sense!
Using your choice of floss, make a motion of the letter "C" up against one side of the tooth and then the same against the opposite tooth.
