When it comes to taking care of your teeth, everyone knows that brushing at least twice a day is critical to your oral health. However, despite the fact that people are told to floss their teeth as well, few people do so as often as they should. In fact, many people don’t even floss correctly when they do take the time to floss. For example, when exactly are you supposed to floss?
Here it is—the ultimate flossing guide! While everyone is aware of how important it is to floss their teeth daily, few know the right way to do it. Waterloo Smiles has created a step-by-step guide so that you do it properly. The correct technique is vital to maintaining healthy teeth and gums.

According to the 201 Crest and Oral-B Great Canadian Smile Survey, a staggering 68% of people disregard the advice dentists give them.
