Shopping for Dental Floss

DentalFloss

When you browse the aisles of your local drug store, it’s likely that you’ll find hundreds of at-home dental products to choose from. From brushes, to toothpaste, floss, and mouthwashes – the choices can be easily overwhelming. However, depending on the spacing and other characteristics of your teeth, not every floss is created equal. There are many choices on the market available to improve the quality of your flossing experience.

Waxed floss is perhaps the most common floss purchased by patients and used by dental offices alike. It is thin, comes in a variety of flavors, and the wax allows it to glide easily between teeth. However, some patients complaint of shredding or bunching of thin, waxed dental floss – especially those patients with closely spaced teeth.

For these patients dental tape may be a better solution to their flossing needs. It is waxed and flavored like regular floss but broadly shaped and flat like tape. This helps the dental tape glide easily between tightly spaced teeth.

Finally, Super Floss is a brand name that is sold in pre-cut pieces. It incorporates a pointed flosser at one end for easy lacing of the floss through teeth. This is followed by regular waxed floss for cleaning the gums, and finished by a spongy material for removing larger pieces of debris found between teeth. This makes Super Floss a great choice for patients who wear braces.
