Figuring Out the Dental Floss

Flossing daily helps clean the areas between your teeth which can be hard to reach with a toothbrush. There are different types of floss, and a dentist can advise which one you may find most comfortable.

Key takeaways:

  • Waxed floss can be more comfortable for people with a little space between their teeth.
  • Although more prone to breaking, unwaxed floss tends to be better where the space between teeth is tighter.
  • A water flosser is good for braces, using a stream of water to remove particles trapped between teeth.
