Make a dental floss part of your daily oral hygiene, get rid of impurities between your teeth and keep your gums and teeth healthy and cavity-free. Use a dental floss, quality toothbrush and toothpaste on a regular basis and enjoy your brilliant smile.
How to Use Dental Floss?
Dental floss should be used once a day, ideally before bed. But how exactly should you do it?
- Tear off approx. 45cm of the dental floss.
- Wind it around your fingers so that the floss is tight.
- Gently guide the floss between your teeth in a rocking motion.
- Hold the floss against the side of the tooth from one side and glide up and down across the surface.
- Don’t forget to clean the back of the last tooth.
Types of Dental Floss
- Waxed dental floss is lightly coated with wax, which makes it easier to slide between your teeth.
- Unwaxed dental floss is great for those who are already experienced in using dental floss.
- Fluoride dental floss cleans your interdental spaces while strengthening your tooth enamel.
- Dental floss with menthol offers a refreshing menthol scent.
- Dental floss for implants is specially designed for cleaning teeth with crowns, bridges or braces.
Dental Floss or Floss Picks?
Plastic toothpicks are designed to remove bits of food stuck in your teeth. However, dental floss can reach even tighter spaces and is more effective at getting rid of impurities. You can try a clever compromise in the form of a combination dental floss and floss pick – first remove the larger bits of food and then use the dental floss as normal.
Whether you choose interdental toothpicks, floss sticks, an interdental toothbrush or a classic dental floss by Curaprox or Colgate, always remember to use them on a regular basis. That way you’ll be able to make the most of their amazing effects.
