Celebrate National Flossing Day

By: Redmond Signature Dentistry
February 13, 2023

Do you faithfully floss every day?

Or, do you neglect to floss throughout the year, except for the week of your dental hygiene appointment?

“You cannot effectively vacuum a house with only one attachment.
You need other attachments to get into the nooks and crannies. That’s what floss does.”
– ADA Spokesman Richard Price, DMD

If your flossing routine isn’t exactly regular, pledge to start fresh this November – on National Flossing Day! (Secretly, Dr McLaughlin and the entire team here at Redmond Signature Dentistry would love it if every day was Flossing Day – but we’ll take what we can get.)

Brushing alone only cleans about two-thirds of the surfaces of your teeth. Flossing is vital! If you’re not sure if you’re flossing correctly, check out this infographic for easy step-by-step instructions:

Flossing 101: the importance of flossing everyday.

How to floss properly:

  1. Use about 18 inches of floss and wrap one end around your middle finger, with the rest wrapped around the opposite middle finger.
  2. Pinch the floss tightly between your thumbs and forefingers and gently insert it between your teeth.
  3. When the floss reaches the gum line, curve the floss into a “C” shape against the side of the tooth.
  4. Rub the floss gently up and down, keeping it pressed against the tooth.
