Yes – there is a correct and incorrect way to floss your teeth. This is separate from brushing your teeth. Most people try to lump brushing and flossing into one, but that’s not how it should be done. Brushing is and will always be separate from flossing. This isn’t to say that brushing your teeth is bad; it’s necessary! Flossing is just as important as brushing, and patients need to understand this. Too often we run into a situation where a patient either is unsure of how to properly floss their teeth or won’t floss at all. There’s no harm in not knowing the correct flossing technique, that’s why we’re here to help!
If you’re one of those people who is unsure of how to properly floss your teeth, you’ve come to the right place. Our Ft. Collins, CO office has the preventive dentistry services that can help keep your oral health in fantastic shape. As part of our general services, we can train you on how to practice good oral habits. Flossing once a day is good but if you’re not doing it correctly then what’s the point? We’ll help you head down the path to excellent oral health with our flossing recommendations. Dr. Lindsey is the dentist Fr. Collins residents can trust.
