For years, my dental / oral hygeine routine has been, brush, floss, gargle w/ mouthwash. I'll bet you do it that way, too.

The experts at say we're going about it all wrong. Their advice is start with floss, followed by mouthwash, and brush last. They say this routine is best because the toothpaste stays on your teeth longer, thereby giving greater protection.

I like doing mouthwash last because I like the taste it leaves in my mouth.
