Are you aware of the benefits that dental floss can have for your smile? It is important to make sure that you use interdental cleaning tools such as dental floss to reach between your teeth, since daily brushing will not be enough to clean those areas. Use dental floss to reach the areas between every tooth and behind the back teeth. Ideally, you will want to floss at least once each day.

When choosing your dental floss, it is important to understand your options. Whereas traditional dental floss uses thread to easily clean between teeth, a water flosser uses a jet of water to do the job. Either option is effective. However, if you do choose to use dental floss, make sure that it is shred-resistant and that you do not reuse a strand to avoid contamination.
