Question : Hi. How do I floss my jacket crown?

Dentures PH Answer : Good question. Choose the thinnest dental floss possible. Satin type is good. Spongy type is better.

How to Floss a Jacket Crown

Use about 18 inches of floss wound around one of your middle fingers, with the rest wound around the opposite middle finger.Hold the floss tightly between the thumbs and forefingers and gently insert it between the teeth.

 

 

Curve the floss into a “C” shape against the side of the jacket crown.

 

 

Rub the floss gently up and down, keeping it pressed against the jacket crown. Don’t jerk or snap the floss.

 

 

Floss all your other teeth. Don’t forget to floss behind your back teeth.
