The Many Kinds of Dental Floss

We all know that there are countless kinds of toothbrushes, pastes and mouthwashes available on the market today. However, did you realize that you also have many options when it comes to dental floss?

Regular waxed floss is very common. It is thin, waxed, usually flavored and is used by dentists as well as patients at home. If you have crowded teeth it can be possible for floss to bunch or gather between your teeth – which can be frustrating for patients. For these patients, we recommend trying a flatter, dental tape floss. Dental tape is also waxed and tends to glide between teeth more easily that traditional floss.

Super Floss is a brand name floss product that is sold in pre-cut lengths and is popular among patients who wear braces. It incorporates a pointed end for lacing as well as a spongy floss material for removing large pieces of debris from in between teeth and metal brackets.

Finally, for those patients will to invest more in their flossing activities, Waterpiks or water flossers can be used to flush the spaces between your teeth without using actual floss on your teeth and gums.

If you’d like information about how to pick the right floss for your teeth, contact the professionals at College Park Dental today.
