Today it should be well known that the use of dental floss for daily oral hygiene is an indispensable part of dental care. But when should you floss? Before or after brushing your teeth?

If you use the dental floss before brushing teeth, the interdental spaces are cleared of deposits even before the use of toothbrush and toothpaste. If a toothpaste containing fluoride is then used for cleaning, it can also have an effect on the already clean interdental surfaces. This protects the teeth from caries all around.

Clear recommendation: use dental floss before cleaning with a toothbrush and toothpaste.
