How to Properly Floss

  Gently bring the floss under the gum line. Move the floss along the tooth to remove the plaque. Often you cannot see the plaque, but you are removing it.
 Then gently bring the floss under the gum line of the adjacent tooth. Be careful not to force the floss down. As this can damage the soft tissue and create unattractive spaces between the teeth.
