Just brushing teeth can leave food debris behind. Flossing reaches places your toothbrush can’t but you need to floss correctly. Incorrect techniques can damage the gum line.
– Use light pressure and floss gently.
– Brush twice a day, floss only once.
– Avoid pulling floss too hard up against the gumline.
See a dentist if your gums continue to bleed if you floss regularly.
“If you need to floss again due to something being stuck in your teeth, this is fine, just try not to make a regular practice out of flossing numerous times every day!”
