Which action is incorrect when flossing a client’s teeth?
  1. Hold the floss between the middle fingers of each hand.
  2. Start at the upper back tooth and work down between the teeth.
  3. Move the floss gently up and down between the teeth.
  4. Use a new piece of floss for each tooth.
Answer: D - It is unnecessary to use a new piece of floss for each tooth. Break off an 18-inch piece of floss from the dispenser; this will do for all the teeth. Just move to a new section of floss after every second tooth is flossed. The other choices are correct steps in flossing.
