Here are some useful ways to floss your teeth:

Waxed floss:
Waxed floss is a wonderful method and tool to floss your teeth with every day. Waxed floss is the floss thread that is waxy and smooth, making it easy to slide between your teeth and along your gumline. Waxed floss is a first-rate option for those who have crooked teeth, so your floss can slide in easier.

Unwaxed floss:
Unwaxed floss is a common form of dental floss often used. It is the simple dental floss thread that can go between your teeth and deep along your gums. If you have adequately aligned teeth, this floss may be the best choice for you.

Water flossers:
Water flossers are a new fun and accessible way to floss your teeth using a jet of water to floss your teeth. The water applies the beam of water that is firm, yet gentle pressure that reaches between your teeth and along your gums to clear away the bacteria. Water flossers are fantastic for those who struggle with dental floss string.
