Wind most of the floss around one of your middle fingers.
Wind the remaining floss around the same finger of the other hand. This finger will “take up” the floss as it becomes used.
Hold the floss tightly between your thumbs and forefingers, with about an inch of floss between them. There should be no slack.
Using a gentle sawing motion, guide the floss between your teeth. Never “snap” the floss into the gums.
When the floss reaches the gumline, curve it into a “C”-shape against one tooth.
Gently slide it into the space between the gum and the tooth until you feel resistance.
Hold the floss tightly against the tooth. Gently scrape the side of the tooth, moving the floss away from the gum.
Move the floss to the tooth on the other side of the same gap. Repeat the same process.
Repeat this method on the rest of your teeth. Don’t forget the back side of your last tooth.
