You’d think picking out floss would be a walk in the park. Still, rows of baffling choices in the supermarket aisles can quickly turn this task into a veritable brain teaser. Why all the different materials and features? What’s the best dental floss, and what’s the difference between woven and other varieties? Did we not get the memo - is this a test?
Finding the best floss for you is not a test. True, there are a lot of varieties available. But it simply a matter of experimentation until you find one that works for you. And, it’s worth the effort. Although dental floss is overlooked by many, it’s a downright important part of your oral hygiene routine. The Australian Dental Association (ADA) recommends flossing at least once a day (in addition to brushing twice a day) to care for the health of your teeth and gums. Still, you might find some flosses less comfortable or even difficult to use, so it’s essential to understand the difference between the types available.
