Flossing Options

Posted .

Are you wondering which dental floss you need to pick for your oral health? If so, we have great news for you! Dental floss comes in many variates, which is why our team here at Milan Sata DDS in Flint, Michigan, is happy to talk to you about the different flossing options for your oral health needs.

For starters, there is two unique types of floss: waxed and unwaxed floss.

Waxed floss:

Waxed floss has a very waxy, slick coating on it that is great to use for people who have tight teeth or tight wedges in their teeth. The wax coating helps your wax slide easier between your teeth to help remove the plaque or food particles between them and deep along the gum line. This is a popular option for people who have limited space between their teeth.

Unwaxed floss:

Unwaxed floss has a very strong fiber material that works between the teeth and deep in the gum line. This is a perfect choice for people who have straighter teeth and less difficulty flossing where the floss can go easily between your teeth and along your gum line.

The good thing about dental floss is no matter which floss you pick, having any floss to help remove the bacteria and food particles from your teeth and gums can help your smile stay healthy and strong. Remember, any dental floss is better than no floss at all.
