Are you using the right kind of dental floss? When it comes to the sea of options at the store, how do you know which floss would work for you? To help you understand your options, Dr. Lawrence Wu and our team at NuSmile Dental & Orthodontics in San Jose, California, 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 best product for your smile and oral health care.

Waxed floss

Waxed floss has been used often recently and became popular in recent times. This kind of floss is popular because 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 popular when it comes to cleaning your teeth. This floss is great for people who have an easier time getting floss between their teeth and can clean along the gum line.

Water flossers

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

There are many options for any smile’s particular need, so you can keep your smile clean and fresh every day. If you would like to learn more about your smile, or if you would like to come in for a dental cleaning, please call us today at 408-266-2800 to set up an appointment. Our team is happy to clean your smile.
