Floss, Waterpik, and Then Brush?? Or Molar Opposite??

Question: What order should I be doing my home care?

Our hygienist Kristy Hopper shared this common question for the Blog. There are many opinions about this, but our practice recommends first and foremost, do them in SOME order! ha!

Kristy’s response:  First, you should floss to loosen debris. Then, you should waterpik to wash debris out.  Finally, you should brush your teeth so that you are brushing a much cleaner surface.
