Flossing is an important part of a dental hygiene routine. Dentists recommend that we floss once a day, preferably at night, to remove any lingering food particles before bed. Flossing helps to clean between teeth and along the gums by dislodging plaque deposits.
You can choose from a range of dental floss products, including classic dental tape in a handy dispenser, waxed floss, easy-slide flossers, and dental sticks. Popular brands include Oral B, Ultradex and Wisdom. Some floss products are available in different flavours such as cool mint. Look out for floss with an antibacterial coating for an extra hygienic clean.
