Begin by winding approximately 18 inches of floss around the middle fingers of each hand, leaving approximately 5 inches of space between your hands. Pinch the floss between your thumbs and index fingers, leaving about one inch to maneuver. Gently guide the floss down between your teeth, utilising a side-to-side motion.
Next, pull the floss tightly into a C shape around the side of the tooth and slide it under the gum line. Clean the tooth's surface using an up-and-down motion, avoiding side-to-side movements until the surface is thoroughly clean.
As you successfully remove all plaque, the floss will emit a squeaking sound as it glides against your teeth. Proceed by pulling the floss around the adjacent tooth and repeating the process. Wind the floss to access a fresh section, gradually progressing around your mouth to clean both sides of every tooth.
