Overview

You know that container of dental floss that your Denver hygienist puts in the “goodie bag” that she gives you after she has cleaned your teeth? She means for you to use it. A lot of patients, however, find it difficult to position the floss so that they’re able to maneuver it easily around and in between the teeth where it can do the most good. There are a few tips that your hygienist can offer that may make the process a little easier.

Cut off enough flossing string (about 18” in length) so that you can wrap it around each finger several times. You’re going to want to be able to unwind it a little at a time as you go along. Once you get the hang of it you may be able to start with less. There are several types of floss available, your hygienist will be able to tell you which one would be best suited to your teeth.

Bleeding gums may be an early sign of gingivitis which is the first stage of gum disease and can be reversed if treated asap. A recent cleaning that involved a lot of scraping to remove tartar buildup may cause the gums to bleed temporarily. The flossing action itself shouldn’t cause bleeding – unless you’re not doing it right. Ask your hygienist to demonstrate the proper way to floss and about a teeth healthy diet.
