Flossing with Waxed of Unwaxed Floss

Posted .

Are you wondering which floss to choose? If so, you have come to the right place! Here at Dental Art Concepts PLLC in Staten Island, New York, our team is always happy to help you with any of your oral health questions and needs, which is why we are happy to explain to you the different kinds of floss to help you and your oral health stay in positive shape.

To make it easy, there is two main types of floss: waxed and unwaxed floss.

Waxed floss:
Waxed floss has a thick, waxy, coating on it that is great to use for people who have tight teeth or tight wedges in their teeth. The wax coating helps your wax slide easier between your teeth to help remove the plaque buildup between them and deep along the gum line. This is a great option for anyone who has limited space between teeth.

Unwaxed floss:
Unwaxed floss has a durable fiber material that works excellent between the teeth and deep in the gum line. This is a picture-perfect choice for people who have straighter teeth where the floss can go easily between your teeth and along your gum line.

One good thing about dental floss is no matter which floss you choose, having any floss to remove the bacteria and food particles from your teeth and gums can help your smile stay healthy and strong. Always remember, any dental floss is better than no floss at all.
