If you walk into the grocery store looking for floss, then it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by which choice is right for you. Luckily, our dental team is happy to help you navigate through your options, so you can understand the different selections and know which type of dental floss would be best for you and your family.

Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor encourages you to floss regularly and reminds you that any floss is better than no floss. However, to help you understand the various types of floss, our team at Skyline Dental Associates is happy to share some insight on the subject.

Here are the types of dental floss to help you navigate through your sea of options:

-Unwaxed dental floss: Unwaxed dental floss is primarily designed to help clean between teeth with traditional floss. Deluxe dental floss is recommended for teeth that are relatively straight.
-Floss picks: Floss picks are tools designed to clean between your teeth by using a stick or small device.
-Water flossers: Water flossers are thread-free and clean between your teeth with an interdental device that is designed to blast water directly onto the surface of your teeth and gums.
-Waxed floss: If you have crooked teeth or teeth that are slightly out of alignment, it can be difficult to floss. However, using waxed floss can make the task much easier.
