The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you clean between your teeth using floss, or an alternative interdental cleaner, once each day. They also recommend that you brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes with fluoride toothpaste. Your toothbrush can’t reach between your teeth to remove plaque (a sticky film that contains bacteria).
The ADA suggests that the best time to floss is the time that comfortably fits into your schedule. While some people like to include flossing as part of their morning ritual and start the day with a clean mouth, others prefer flossing before bedtime so they go to bed with a clean mouth.
A 2018 study suggested that it’s better to floss first and then brush. The study indicated that flossing first loosened bacteria and debris from between teeth, and brushing afterward cleaned these particles away. Brushing second also increased fluoride concentration in the interdental plaque, which could reduce the risk of tooth decay by strengthening tooth enamel.

No, you can’t floss too much unless you’re flossing incorrectly. If you apply too much pressure when you floss, or if you floss too vigorously, you may damage your teeth and gums. You may need to floss more than once a day, especially after meals, to clean out food or debris that’s stuck between your teeth.
It helps remove interproximal dental plaque (the plaque that collects between teeth). It also helps remove debris, such as food particles.
When flossing with braces, there are some tools to consider using: floss threader, which gets floss under wires waxed floss, which is less likely to catch on braces water flosser, an interdental flossing tool that uses water interdental flossing brushes, which clean out debris and plaque that get caught on brackets and wires, and in between teeth.
