Dental Floss

Dental professionals recommend that a person floss once per day before or after brushing to reach the areas that the brush will not and allow the fluoride from the toothpaste to reach between the teeth. Dental Floss is commonly supplied in plastic dispensers that contain 10 to 100 meters of floss. 

After pulling out approximately 40 cm of Dental Floss, the user pulls it against a blade in the dispenser to cut it off. The user then strings the piece of Dental Floss on a fork-like instrument or holds it between their fingers using both hands with about 1–2 cm of floss exposed. The user guides the floss between each pair of teeth and gently curves it against the side of the tooth in a 'C' shape and guides it under the gum line. This removes particles of food stuck between teeth and dental plaque that adhere to dental surfaces below the gum line.
