Are you taking care of your teeth in every way conceivable? Not only is it essential to continue your oral health hygiene routines, but doing so effectively is also of vital importance. Even though you are already flossing every day, there may be areas of your flossing routine that can be enhanced.

Focus your oral health care on dental floss. Save your smile with dental floss and these important facts:

– Ideally, the best type of floss is one durable enough to clean between all of your teeth each session without tearing. Look for shred resistant floss such as single filament thread.

– To help stop plaque from spreading around your mouth, use a strand at least 18 inches long so you never have to use the same part of the strand between more than one tooth.

– Usual flossing sessions last between 2-3 minutes per session, with every single tooth being cleaned between, including the back row.

– Search for dental floss that has the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance or a floss that has been recommended by your dentist.
