Oral Health Advisory: Dental Floss

Posted .

Are you looking to dramatically enhance your oral health with a highly effective product that can clean between your teeth? Ideally, you should be brushing your teeth twice every day. Furthermore, you should be implementing effective interdental care by cleaning between your teeth once a day. This can be accomplished with an interdental cleaning tool such as a water flosser or dental floss.

Dental floss has been proven to be safe and effective for decades. Threaded floss uses strands of thread to clean between each tooth, including your back row. As long as you are going slow and gently and safely flossing between your teeth, you can drastically lower your risk of gum disease, tooth decay and several other oral health ailments.

However, threaded floss can often be difficult to use if you are suffering from muscle or joint pain. It is also difficult for individuals who are at an advanced stage and cannot move in the ways they once did. As an alternative cleaning tool, think about the use of a water flosser. Water flossers are designed to be easier to operate and clean between teeth with steady jets of water.
