Choosing A Dental Floss

Choosing a dental floss is as individual as choosing any other personal hygiene product. If you have trouble sliding floss through your teeth, you may prefer waxed floss. But if you have more space between your teeth, or if you don’t care for the feel of waxed floss, then opt for unwaxed floss. Either waxed or unwaxed floss will do the job of removing plaque buildup from your teeth. For best results, be sure to use a fresh section of floss as you move from one tooth to the next. Otherwise, you may redeposit bacteria-carrying particles that you removed from one tooth onto the neighboring tooth!

Why Use Floss?

The bottom line is that tooth brushing cleans about three-quarters of the surface area of each of your teeth. You need to use floss, waxed or unwaxed, or some other type of flossing product, to take care of that fourth quarter of space. Any surface area on a tooth is vulnerable to the plaque that forms when bacteria aren’t removed by brushing and flossing.

Benefits Of Waxed Floss

Some waxed flosses claim to have additional beneficial properties, such as essential oils or enzymes, meant to make the floss even more effective at removing plaque; but any floss will do, as long as you use it daily. Some, such as Oral-B Essentials, feature a polymer coating to help prevent shredding and make plaque removal effortless.
