Flossing your back teeth is an important part of your oral hygiene routine to help remove plaque and food particles that brushing alone may not reach. Here are the steps to floss your back teeth:
- Slide the floss up and down the side of each tooth, being careful not to snap the floss into your gums.
- This helps prevent the spread of bacteria.
- Be sure to floss the back teeth on both sides of your mouth, including the very back molars.
- Rinse your mouth with water or mouthwash after flossing to help remove any loosened plaque and food particles.
Remember to floss your teeth at least once a day, preferably before bedtime, to help keep your gums and teeth healthy. If you have trouble flossing, talk to your dentist or dental hygienist for guidance on proper flossing techniques.
