Jan Challenge Day 22 Task | Floss your teeth

Posted by Health Boutique on

Flossing is an important part of your oral health. Flossing helps to keep your teeth clean and reduce the amount of plaque build up which can lead to a variety of health problems. Proper flossing removes plaque and food particles in places where a toothbrush cannot easily reach — under the gum-line and between your teeth. Because plaque build-up can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, daily flossing is highly recommended. 

How to floss:

  • Pull 18 to 24 inches of dental floss from the floss dispenser.
  • Wrap the ends of the floss around your index and middle fingers.
  • Hold the floss tightly around each tooth in a C shape; move the floss back and forth in a push-pull motion and up and down against the side of each tooth.
