Wrap the ends of the
string around the middle
finger of each hand.
Use the thumb and finger to guide the string. Go back and forth to slide the
string between two teeth. Be careful not to let it snap down and hurt the gums.
With your fingers pull the
string against the side of one
tooth. Now move the string
up and down. Do not pull
the string back and forth or
it will cut the gum.
Lift the string over the pointed
gum and clean the other tooth.
When you have cleaned both teeth, release the string from one finger and
pull it out from between the teeth. Then wrap it around your two middle
fingers once again, and clean between the next two teeth.
Remember: clean teeth and good food
will prevent almost all dental problems.
