With the improvement of living standards, a variety of tooth cleaning and dental products are also available, such as dental floss, a special oral hygiene product, many people know it, have used it, and can be used for cleaning. The toothbrush can’t wipe the place. So, how to use dental floss? Next, I will introduce the correct use of dental floss.
Step 1: Take out the dental floss
Pull out about 1.5 inches of floss from the floss box, wrap both ends of the floss around the middle fingers of both hands, and leave about 1.5 inches of floss to clean the teeth.
Step 2: The dental floss slips between the teeth
Use your thumb and index finger to manipulate the dental floss, first slide the dental floss into the gap between the teeth, close to the side of the tooth. Gently apply pressure to the gums, pull the floss left and right, cut and use violence to press the floss into the interdental space. Violence will damage the gums and dental papilla.
Step 3: Pull the floss
After the dental floss enters the interdental space, press the dental floss inside and outside the mouth, pull the dental floss left and right, gently clean the adjacent surfaces of the front and back teeth. Then lift the floss to the occlusal surface and repeat the above steps until the adjacent surface of each tooth is cleaned.
Teeth care tips:
After each meal, it takes about 10 minutes to carefully clean each tooth. With proper brushing, the use of mouthwash care solution will be very effective in preventing tooth decay and calculus, and further preventing periodontitis.
If you find it inconvenient to use dental floss, I recommend you buy a dental floss stick directly. Thinning dental floss stick, using thin smooth filament thread, high elasticity without splitting or breaking, meticulously cleans and cares the gums, and prevents the gap between the teeth from becoming larger. The comfortable handle conforms to the ergonomic design, which saves effort and protects the gums.
