How to Choose Right Floss for You

Posted on 2/21/2022 by Classic Smiles
How to Choose Right Floss for YouFlossing your teeth every day is essential in ensuring that your teeth and gums remain healthy. It is recommended to floss at least once a day to eliminate the small food particles that may be present in-between your teeth. The good news is that there are various types of floss and you can choose one depending on your teeth condition. Here is a quick guide to choosing the right floss for your teeth:

Check Out for The American Dental Association Seal

When buying your floss check out for the ADA seal or your county' safety seal that shows that the product has been accepted. Brands producing teeth floss can earn the seal if only they prove that their floss have been scientifically proven to eliminate plaque and is safe to use in the mouth. If you do not see any seal that shows the floss has been certified or accepted, please do not buy the floss as it might not be effective.

Look At the Space Between Your Teeth

It is important to check at the size of the spaces between your teeth. Otherwise, you might find yourself buying a thicker floss, which will not fit in between your teeth. If your teeth are overcrowded, pick a thinner floss to allow it to clean in between your teeth effectively. Also, if the spaces between your teeth are thick, buy a floss that is a bit thick to ensure all the food particles in the spaces of your teeth have been eliminated.

Think About Your Health Condition

Some people have health problems like arthritis, and it might be hard to move the floss around their teeth. If you also have trouble using the normal floss, you should consider getting a flossing pick as it will make it easier for you to clean your teeth. Lastly, also consider the pricing of the floss to determine if it is worth it.
