Dr. Travis Stork says this is the method he uses, explaining he feels the flossing helps to loosen anything that might be between the teeth and then brushing will remove it any food or plaque.
The study also found that depending on your teeth, you should use different types of floss. If you have teeth that closer together, opt for thin floss and for teeth that are spaced apart, the study found using wider and flatter floss was best. Also, it is recommended that everyone should floss behind their very back teeth, as food can become lodged between the tooth and the gum in this part of the mouth.
