how to floss your teeth correctly

Place the toothbrush at a 45°angle along the gum line. Move the toothbrush in a back and forth motion, and repeat for each tooth.

Brush the inside surface of each tooth, using the same back and forth technique.

Brush the chewing surface (top) of each tooth.

Use tip of brush to brush behind each tooth — front and back, top and bottom and up and down strokes.

Be sure to brush your tongue to remove odor causing bacteria.
