In fact, finding the answers to your questions can help you have the top-notch flossing routine you need to properly clean and care for your smile. So, our dentist is happy to help you find the answers by providing the answers to the following commonly asked questions:

Q: How often should I floss?
A: It’s important to floss at least once a day. Many prefer to floss at night before bed, but it does not matter when you floss. As long as you floss daily, you’re on the right track.

Q: What tools should I use to floss?
A: It’s best to use tools that are easy to use. This is because it reduces your chances of forcing the floss in place. So, feel free to use whichever flossing product you prefer, whether it’s waxed floss, flossing picks, floss threaders, water flossers and more.

Q: Can flossing hurt my smile?
A: Flossing can hurt your smile, but only if you’re not careful. In fact, if you are forceful with the floss or if you use rough techniques, you can damage the gums. So, make sure to gently place the floss between the teeth and gently clean the crevice and gums.
