This month’s oral hygiene tip is a frequently asked question from our patients… Which order is best when it comes to your oral care routine?

Most people brush, then floss, then waterpik (if they have one)… but did you know the “best” order is actually:

  1. Floss – to dislodge food particles
  2. Waterpik – to flush everything away
  3. Brush last – to clean your teeth and get the most out of your toothpaste (especially if it has fluoride and minerals in it like CTX4 5000)

And most importantly – spit but don’t rinse after you brush so that there is some toothpaste left around your teeth!
