How to floss | Naperville dentist | Diehl Family Dental

Wondering why you have to floss?

Dr Ramya Joshua, Naperville dentist recommends that you floss at least once per day.

The toothbrush bristles of a manual toothbrush and an electric toothbrush are too big to fit between the teeth.  Using a combination of toothbrushing which will clean along the gumline and clean the cheek side of your tooth and the tongue side of your teeth along with flossing will clean all surfaces of the teeth if used effectively.

Here is a short video created by the American Dental Association that will demonstrate the proper use of floss.   If you have any questions, please ask Dr Joshua or one of her staff to help you become a master flosser.
