Flossing is critical to the health of both your teeth and gums, but many people neglect it. To properly floss, use an
18-inch strand of floss, and ease it between each tooth. Sweep it up and down several times, making sure to curve around the tooth at the gum line. Also, make sure to forget behind the last tooth. If you have any bridges or artificial teeth, use a floss threader to clean hard to reach areas.
