What Comes First, Floss Or Brushing Teeth?

Dental professionals differ in their opinions about flossing. Their differing opinions rest on whether flossing should come before or after brushing teeth.

Key takeaways:

  • Flossing before brushing is recommended since it will ensure that people don’t forget this tedious task.
  • Another school of thought recommends flossing AFTER brushing to make sure that fluoride gets into the spaces between the teeth.
