The New Year is almost among us, which means new opportunities to enhance your oral health care. If you haven’t already started, make sure you’re brushing and flossing on a daily basis and visiting your dentist for professional cleanings every 6 months. Furthermore, don’t be afraid to look for new ways to improve your pre-existing treatments including upgrading your dental floss techniques or even the tools to use to floss your teeth.

To ensure you oral remains in peak condition, always make sure you are flossing safely and effectively with reliable products. If you have any questions or concerns about your dental floss or any other interdental cleaner you may be using to clean between teeth, speak with your dentist about public suggestions and recommendations. Ideally, you should use a threaded dental floss that is shed-resistant and strong enough to last effectively for an entire flossing session.

Never use the same strand more than once. In addition, always make sure to use a different section of each strand between each tooth. To accomplish this, you will need to use a strand that is wrapped around a finger on each hand, so you can move up and down as needed. If you wish to forgo threaded floss altogether, use an interdental cleaner such as a water flosser.
