Flossing Instructions

St. Johns Pediatric Dentistry teaching to floss

Flossing: Step 1

Wind about 18 inches of floss around your fingers as shown. Most of it should be wrapped around one finger, and as the floss is used, the other finger takes it up.

Flossing can help get food that is trapped between teeth. Our pediatric dentist in Jacksonville and St. Johns teaches kids the importance of developing good habits early on. Learn about early infant oral health.
