Flossing Choices for Unique Smiles

Posted .

Here at Grand Trails Dental in Spring, Texas, we understand every smile is unique, which is why we understand every smile may need different types of dental products to keep your unique smile healthy. To help you find your way through the sea of dental products, our team is happy to talk to you about each kind and why they might work for you.

Flossing is a key tool to use that keeps your smile healthy and works to clean the hard-to-reach places between your teeth and deep along your gum line. Flossing is imperative to reduce the risk of cavities and fight off gum disease. That is why choosing the right item can make a huge difference in the health of your smile.

Waxed floss is popular because it slides easier if your teeth are misaligned or have extremely tight spaces between your teeth. Unwaxed floss is also a smart option, and more popular with properly aligned teeth, so your floss can slide in easily between them. Water flossers also offer water pressure between your teeth, which have been rising more and more in popularity. As always, the important thing to look for on any dental product is the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance, so you know the product has been tested and approved to improve oral health.
