Floss First or Brush First

Daily brushing and flossing are one of the single most important parts of maintaining a healthy smile. But while we all know that brushing and flossing are important, there's one thing that most people still aren't clear on: is it better to brush your teeth first or floss your teeth first? At Children's Dentistry of Stuart, we strive to be a resource for all aspects of dental health, so here's our advice on the order of your oral hygiene.

Brushing First or Flossing First

For better or worse, the answer to this common question is fairly anticlimactic: the truth is, so long as you brush and floss your teeth diligently, it doesn't really matter which comes first. When it comes to oral hygiene, order matters much less than consistency. Ultimately, whether you brush first or floss first is a matter of personal preference.
