Are you browsing the oral hygiene aisle looking for the perfect floss for your smile? If so, our dentist, Dr. Tom Supakorndej, is more than happy to give you the tips and information you need to be successful. It’s important to pick the best floss for your teeth and gums so you can have a proper and effective flossing routine. So, as you’re searching the oral hygiene aisle, it’s best to keep the following information in mind:

-Dental tape, which is also known as wide floss, can help clean teeth that have wider spaces between them. It can also help clean around dental bridges and other dental restorations.

-Waxed floss is easier to use compared to most floss options. This is because the wax coating makes it easier to slide the floss into tight places. It also keeps the floss from breaking easily.

-Unwaxed floss helps clean between teeth that don’t fit closely together. This type of floss is typically flavored to help freshen the breath.

-Bonded unwaxed floss does not break as easily as waxed floss, but it does break more often than waxed floss.

If you would like to use products other than dental floss to clean the smile, you can also use water flossers and flossing picks. You can also use floss threaders to make flossing with dental floss easier.
