If you've recently visited a dentist in Lexington to receive a dental
filling, it may be necessary to
improve your oral hygiene routine. It's critical to make flossing part of your daily teeth cleaning
regimen to prevent future cavities and gingivitis. Your dentist or your
dental hygienist can demonstrate the proper flossing technique for you.
First, your dentist will recommend using about six inches of floss and
wrapping the ends around each index finger. Then, gently guide the floss
between each tooth.
You can see a demonstration of the proper flossing technique by watching
