The tried-and-tooth answer? There’s no right or wrong order. If you’re flossing (at least) once a day and following a proper technique, you’re in good shape.
How to floss like a boss:
- Section it off. Use ~18” and move your way down the string with a new section for each tooth
- Grip it with a little bit of slack. You should have control, and wiggle it through your teeth instead of snapping it down
- Guide the floss down around the gumline, following the natural c-shaped curve of your teeth
