Floss first, since it can cause the gums to bleed a little bit. Then rinse with Listerine to kill the bacteria and stop any bleeding. Then brush.

Well, having fairly bad teeth and seeing a periodontist, I have learned the best practice of how to make sure that you get rid of almost all plaque and how to keep yourself from having any gum disease. This is my regiment nightly, and it's really not too hard to do. This will insure that you keep your teeth and gums as clean as you can possibly get them.

Floss first. Press the floss tightly against the gumline/tooth and push the floss away from the gumline and up or down the tooth. The "sawing" motion does nothing to remove plaque.

Use a good sonic type toothbrush like a sonicare or an oralb 3d excel. Brush the gumlines first (both inside and out), then the tops of the teeth. You should use the toothbrush roughly in the same motion that you are using the floss. Do the motions a few times per tooth to dislodge any stuck plaque/food. After you do your whole mouth, the standard 2 minute brushing should be finished.

Use a proxabrush type handle and dip the brush portion of the handle in mouth wash (listerine works well). Push the brush through your teeth. You generally only need to use this brush on your molars. I was amazed at the amount of food that was stuck between my molars after flossing/brushing that these things get out! Ewww.

After you are done with the proxabrush, rinse mouth with mouthwash. Again, listerine is the best.

It seems like a huge hassle, but it quickly becomes routine. It only takes about 10-15 minutes to do it all. I wish I knew how to properly take care of my teeth and gums when I was growing up to avoid the condition my teeth are in now. However, my gums are more healthy now than they ever have been after doing this. My kid(s) will definitly learn early on how to take care of their teeth properly.

[Edit: The periodontist also told me to floss first, then brush. Flossing first breaks up the plaque better, then brushing afterwards brushes it away.]
