Alternate Options for Flossing Your Teeth

We’ve talked before about the importance of flossing your teeth regularly for good oral health. However, some patients find it difficult to remember to floss or just plain don’t like doing it. In this article, we are going to talk about the various options available to you for flossing your teeth – including some alternative options you may not be aware of.

Regular Old Floss

The most common method for flossing your teeth is to use regular old floss. There are many different brands and flavors to choose from, but this is generally what people imagine when they picture floss – a small spool of floss that you wrap around your fingers. This is probably the cheapest and most common way to floss your teeth.

Floss Picks

Floss picks are plastic tooth picks that have a pre-strung piece of floss on one end for ease of use. Floss picks, though more expensive than regular floss, offer a quick and convenient way to floss your teeth.

Air Flossers

An air flosser is a small, portable device that deliver small amounts of air and liquid to clean between the teeth and gums.
