Do I Brush or Floss first?

Brushing and flossing are both play essential roles in your oral hygiene. Brushing your teeth helps remove food and plaque while flossing disrupts bacteria that form along the gum line, thus stimulating your gums and can help prevent gum disease.

So which one should you do first? According to the American Dental Association (ADA), the sequence makes no difference as long as you do a thorough job of removing plaque.

Make sure you are using a fresh area of floss between each tooth so that you are not moving plaque from tooth to tooth. Avoid using too much force because this can cut or scrape the gums.
