Information About Dental Floss

Posted .

When assessing your oral health care, it is always important to look for new ways to enhance your oral hygiene daily habits including upgrading your brushing and flossing products and techniques. Always look for better products to use for your oral health care, including superior forms of threaded floss and superior techniques to ensure plaque will not escape your cleaning habits.

If you wish to accurately clean between your teeth, it is important to make sure that your dental flossing products are up to code. This includes products that are extremely safe and will not shred. Always be sure to talk to your dentist about product recommendations or suggestions, or look for product packaging that has the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance for approval. That way you know you are using a high-quality product.

Flossing is not a race, so take your time. Make sure that you are flossing between every single tooth including the back row. Go slow enough to ensure that all sides of each tooth are effectively reached. Try to floss every single day with a session approximately taking 2-3 minutes per day. Never use the same strand of thread for more than one day.

The floss effectively, it is important to always make sure you’re using a strand long enough to prevent recontamination. This includes threaded flossing strands that are about 18” in length, so you can move up and down and never use the same section more than once. Gently glide the thread between each tooth in a ‘c’ shape to ensure your teeth are cleaned effectively.
