Are you using the right kind of dental floss for your smile? When it comes to the sea of choices at the store, how do you know which floss would work for you? To help you understand your many options, Dr. Brian J. Waggle and our team at Northpointe Dental in Zanesville, Ohio, is happy to help you navigate through the sea of dental floss by talking about your three options, so you can make sure you are using the best product for your smile and oral health care.

Waxed floss

Waxed floss has been used by thousands and became popular. This type of floss is popular because people with misaligned teeth or people with tight teeth can use the wax to slide easier between the teeth.

Unwaxed floss

Unwaxed floss is also effective and successful when it comes to cleaning your teeth. This dental floss is great for people who have an easier time getting floss between their teeth and can clean along the gum line.

Water flossers

If the string of dental floss does work for your teeth and gums, water flossers might be your best tool. This is applied by applying water pressure to your teeth, which will clean between your teeth and gums. This option has no dental string, just water pressure to use for flossing.

As you can see, dental floss comes in many options, which is why it’s important to choose the one best suited for your needs. If you have questions, please call us today at 740-454-6644. Our team of experts is happy to help in any way we can.
