Aberdeen dentist - Flossing

* With firm hands grip the floss next to the tooth. The tooth should be smoothly scraped on both gaps by flossing away from the gum.
* Make sure the last tooth situated way back in your mouth is also flossed.
* Flossing should be done in a consistent method. You can begin with the top teeth from left to right before continuing to the bottom set. Consistency reduces the chances of missing any tooth.

If you have any bridges, implants or crowns, then it is equally important for you to clean the edges. This can be an almost impossible task if you were to use the traditional floss. However the availability of special flosses such as floss threaders and super floss makes this task much easier. If you need to know the correct and appropriate manner and type of floss that you should use, then consult your Aberdeen dentist
