The benefits of oral hygiene can be maximised by including proper flossing techniques into a regimen involving correct brushing. As suggested by the American Dental Association, a once a day gentle flossing routine, most easily accomplished in the evening, provides the most benefits. The correct way leaves teeth clean and shouldn’t cause any pain. Two different kinds of material have been found to lead to the best results: multifilamentous nylon and monofilamentous PTFE, waxed or unwaxed. One should choose the floss one feels most comfortable with and incorporate the practice starting today.
- Having very good hygiene is accomplished by flossing among other things.
- It is important to floss one’s teeth every single day to keep them healthy.
- When one flosses they should be very gentle with their teeth since they are sensitive.
