Proper Flossing Technique

Proper Flossing Technique

Colgate recommends holding the floss firmly around each tooth, where the floss is pulled to create a C shape, as pictured overhead. Next, the floss should be moved using a push and pull motion (left to right and vice versa), with the floss then being moved in an up and down direction, pressed against the side of each tooth.
