Floss before or after brushing the teeth?

Photo of dental flossI have read two diametrically opposite opinions on when to floss your teeth: after brushing or before brushing your teeth.

Flossing is very important to have healthy teeth and avoid to lose them later on. It is important to floss once a day. The experts who suggest that you floss before brushing argue that this loosens the plaque and then brushing eliminates it. The other dentists argue that some toothpaste will still be in the mouth and the floss will use it to clean more between the teeth if you floss after brushing.

Flossing itself is more important than if doing it after or before brushing. I bet Rosario Dawson does it.
