Part of the foundation of a sound oral health care routine needs to be effective daily flossing. Dental floss is important for cleaning your teeth since it can clean areas between teeth that your brush may not be able to reach.

It is important to determine what type of floss you will need to use. If you have any issues with using traditional threaded floss, you may find it easier time to use a thread-free interdental cleaner such as a water flosser. Water flossers clean between teeth using jets of water to rinse the areas.

To help prevent plaque and debris from building up between your teeth, always make sure you floss at least once a day. If you are using traditional dental floss, make sure to throw out the used strand after to prevent contamination. Furthermore, you should use shred-resistant floss so it can effectively to clean the areas between each tooth.
