Have you tried other options of dental floss to see which option is best for you? If not, perhaps you should! Thanks to modern technology, there are now easier and more efficient ways than ever to take care of your teeth and gums, including new forms of dental floss. Dental floss should be used each day as an aid to brushing in order to keep your teeth healthy and clean.
Our dentists, Dr. Rich, Dr. Prince, and Dr. Dansie, take your oral health seriously, which is why we are happy to help you with your dental floss options. Our team in Orem, Utah, is also pleased to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
Here is a list of the various forms of dental floss you can pick:
– Floss picks: Floss picks, commonly referred to as professional flossers, are strings of thread that have a handle. Oftentimes, the strings are short, so the floss will not be able to easily reach areas in the back of your mouth without difficulty.
– Water flossers: Water flossers are interdental tools designed to clean between teeth through the use of water. Water is directly sprayed onto your teeth to wash away debris and plaque buildup.
– Waxed floss: Waxed floss is highly recommended for individuals who wish to clean between their teeth that have crooked teeth or teeth out of alignment.
– Unwaxed dental floss: Dental floss is an interdental cleaning tool designed to clean between teeth with a string of thread.
