If you’re at the store wondering which floss to purchase for the best flossing technique possible, our dentist, Dr. Scott Healey, is happy to help you. If you use floss that is best for your smile, then you can have a proper and effective cleaning technique. So, as you’re browsing the aisle, it’s best to keep the following tips and information in mind:
-Wide floss, like dental tape, can help clean dental bridges and other dental restorations. It can also help clean teeth that have wider-than-average gaps between them.
-Waxed floss can be easier to maneuver between closely spaced teeth. This is because the slick coating can make the floss easier to slide into tight spaces.
-Unwaxed floss is typically used to clean teeth that aren’t tightly knit. This type of floss will likely be flavored.
-Bonded unwaxed floss does not fray as easily as unwaxed floss, but it does break more often than waxed floss.
To make flossing around appliances easier, use floss threaders. If you would like to floss with a product other than dental floss, you can use a water flosser or flossing picks.
