Did you know you have options when it comes to picking a dental floss? Well, it’s true! Understanding your options for any dental products that can keep you healthy will make a difference in your oral health. Dr. Robert A. McCulla at Turlock Dental Care in Turlock, California, and the entire team wants to help you with any oral health questions you may have, which is why we are happy to talk to you about the different types of floss.

Waxed floss is a popular option for people with tight or misaligned teeth. The wax on the floss makes it easy for the floss to slide between your teeth and deep along the gum line. Unwaxed floss is a great option for people who have straight teeth or don’t need extra help to clean between them.

If neither of these flosses sounds like something that could work for you, or if you don’t like the floss picks or dental strings, you could try a water flosser. Water flossers apply gentle pressure on your teeth and gums to remove plaque or bacteria from between your teeth and gum line. Another tip to finding the best dental floss for you is to look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance, so you know the product has been tested for safety and efficiency.
