How would you rank the current status of your oral health? Are you doing enough to keep your smile clean? In order to ensure your oral hygiene habits are at their best, you should always be brushing and flossing your teeth on a daily basis. This includes brushing your teeth every day twice a day and cleaning between your teeth once a day with safe and effective interdental tools such as dental floss.

It is important to make sure you take your time and exercise caution with your oral health care. This includes selecting and implementing dental flossing tools. Because your dental flossing tools are essential for cleaning between teeth, you will need to make sure they are safe and effective for use. Furthermore, you will need to make sure you’re using them correctly. For product recommendations and suggestions, feel free to speak with your dentist, or look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance on product packaging. Try to use shred-resistant floss or water flossers to clean your teeth.

If you do decide on a threaded floss for cleaning between teeth, make sure it is shred-resistant. Once your flosser is selected, be sure to exercise caution when cleaning between your teeth. Try to aim for 2 to 3 minutes each session and always make sure your cleaning between each and every tooth slowly and gently with strokes that will not cause dental abrasion or gum laceration. If you’re using threaded floss, to avoid contamination, you should use a strand that is roughly 18” in length, so you can use a different section for each tooth.
