Do you have a hard time using traditional dental floss around your fingers? If so, do you know that there are other options and ways to floss your teeth? Yes, it’s true! There are many easy-to-use dental flossing tools to help you keep a clean and healthy smile. In fact, thanks to modern technology, there is even a new flossing tool that doesn’t require the use of string.
At Evans Street Dental Center, our dentist is happy to help keep your teeth in tip-top shape. As a result, our team is excited to share some information with you about some other flossing choices that are easy to use and can be helpful.
Here is a list of the various flossing tools you can use to floss your teeth:
-Waxed floss: Waxed floss takes traditional dental floss and coats it in a slippery substance to allow you to clean between teeth that may be overcrowded or out of alignment.
-Floss picks: Floss picks, also commonly referred to as professional flossers, use traditional dental floss with a handle to clean between your teeth.
-Water flossers: Water flossers are easy-to-operate interdental cleaning tools designed to clean between your teeth with steady jets of water.
-Unwaxed dental floss: Unwaxed dental floss is a form of interdental cleaner designed to clean between teeth for individuals who have relatively straighter teeth.
As you can see, the options are out there to help you floss easier.
