Happy Father’s Day to all Dads out there! You sacrifice daily for your family. Your love for your family, your work and your community are commendable. At Whispering Creek Dental, we’re glad there’s a day dedicated to you! Thank you for making your family’s dental health a priority. You ensure your kiddos are brushing twice a day and flossing once a day. Way to go! However, are you certain the flossing technique you use, and that you’re passing down to your kiddos is correct?
Here are some tips to ensuring everyone in your household is flossing like a boss!
- Use about 18 inches of floss. Wind the majority of the floss around one of your index fingers. Wind the remainder of the floss around the other index finger on your other hand.
- Hold the floss firmly between your thumbs and forefingers. Move the floss between each of your teeth, using a gentle back and forth motion.
- When your floss gets to the gum line, curve it into a C shape against one tooth. Gently guide it into the space between your gum and tooth.
- Firmly hold your floss against the your tooth, and gently rub the side of your tooth with an up and down motion.
As a dad, you’re in charge of a lot in your home. Make sure you’re being the boss of the flossing that’s happening in your house. In addition, make sure you’re booking regular checkups for each member of your family at Whispering Creek Dental.
