Flossing and interdental cleaning Brushing alone will not clean all the way between teeth. Regular dental flossing is really the only answer for most people although interdental brushes or water picks are useful where there are larger spaces between teeth.
Various flosses and dental tapes are available and it is recommended that the choice of floss should be one that suits you.
Wind floss around your middle fingers to keep it taut. Place the floss over the tips of your first fingers to reach your back teeth.
