Do you floss correctly?

by Elisabeth on Oct. 08th, 2006

If you are in a pinch and need floss immediately, do you find a makeshift substitute? The British Dental Health Foundation found more that 60% of people risk their oral health by utilizing makeshift substitutes to remove food from between their teeth. It is postulated that American numbers are lower, but not by much.

I distinctly remember members of my family using knives to pick food out of their teeth, as a child. Probably not the best practice, huh?
