Tips and tricks for flossing your teeth

If you’ve already developed a consistent and healthy brushing schedule, congratulations! You’re halfway down the road to achieving good oral hygiene. The other key to having a healthy mouth is learning proper flossing techniques. The British Dental Health Foundation recommends flossing at least once a day, and they give five suggestions to make your next flossing session more successful:

The British Dental Health Foundation also suggests following a regular pattern when you floss so that you don’t miss any teeth. You may choose to start at the bottom right and end at the top left, or any other consistent method. Don’t be afraid to use a mirror, at least for awhile, so you can make sure you’re flossing properly. In general, developing good habits will greatly improve the effectiveness of your flossing. If you have questions or want to request special floss for braces or crowns, please talk to your dentist or orthodontist. Any oral health professional that accepts your True Care membership plan will be able to help you improve your flossing habits. The sooner your start, the more benefits you will reap when it comes to having a hygienic mouth.

"I finally found something that really helps! The first week I received the Advantage Card, I saved $418 on Dental expenses. That was money I would have had to pay out of my own pocket."
- J. Britt, Orlando, FL

"I just want to say thanks for having this service for those that cannot afford dental insurance. I have noticed the savings since the very first time I used it, and I've never even heard of Discount Dental Plans before. I was so pleased with the company I called in to see what other programs they offer and signed up for coverage on Medical and Chiropractic as well!"
-Kevin, Philadelphia, PA

"The free prescription drug card is such an added bonus. I'm on a maintenance drug that used to cost me $107.67 every three months. After receiving my free discount drug card it now costs just $43.42. This is an annual saving of $257, which is even more than the entire plan cost. What a great free bonus to go along with my dental plan."
-Hassan, Sacramento, CA
