Are you using the correct kind of dental floss? When it comes to the sea of options at the supermarket, how do you know which floss would work for you? To help you understand your many options, Dr. Bruce W. Taylor & Katy L. Wagner and our team at Taylor Wagner Family Dentistry in Jonesboro, Arkansas, is happy to help you navigate through the sea of dental floss by talking about your three options, so you can make sure you are using the right product for your smile and oral health care.

Waxed floss

Waxed floss has been used by dozens and became popular in recent days. This kind of floss is popular because the many people with misaligned teeth or people with tight teeth can use the wax in the floss to slide easier between the teeth.

Unwaxed floss

Unwaxed floss is also effective and extremely popular when it comes to cleaning your teeth. This dental floss is fantastic for people who have an easier time getting floss between their teeth and can clean along the gum line.

Water flossers

If the traditional dental floss does not sound appealing, water flossers might be your best option. This is used by gently applying water pressure to your teeth, which will clean between your teeth and gums. This option has no dental string at all, just water pressure to use for flossing.

Now that you understand the differences in the dental floss, you can now have an easier time finding the best floss for your needs. If you would like to come in for a dental cleaning, call us today at 870-972-6985. Our staff is ready to take your call!
