The act of gently massaging a plastic string between each tooth isn’t appealing to a lot of people. But it serves a very important purpose.

Flossing not only removes food debris from places your toothbrush can’t reach. It also disrupts cavity-causing bacteria from breeding between your teeth. It’s important to do it every day.

Traditional floss can be difficult to use for some people. There are other options available:

  • dental tape, which is a flatter and wider version of floss

  • dental picks

  • pre-threaded flossers;

  • interdental brushes that reach between the teeth

  • water flossers

  • wooden or plastic sticks.

You can always ask your dentist what types of product is best for you and how to use it.
