Having great health is always an added bonus in our lives. Having great oral health is no different. Keeping your smile in excellent condition is always important, especially with Halloween around the corner. However, did you know there are different kinds of floss?

Our team here at Smile 2 Heart Dental in Brigham City, Utah, is happy to give you information on finding a floss that is right for you.

There are different kinds of floss you can use for your teeth. These include:

-Unwaxed floss: Unwaxed floss is a traditional kind of floss. They are great to use if you have a little space between your teeth.
-Waxed floss: Waxed floss is popular when your teeth are closer together. The wax helps the floss slide between the teeth and along the gumline easier.
-Water flosser: A water flosser has become extremely popular. This flosser forces water between your teeth and along your gum line, similar to a pressure washer. This is also a popular option.
-Dental picks: Dental picks are convenient for many because you don’t have to wind the floss around your fingers. They are easy to use and can go gently between your teeth to remove plaque and food particles.

If you still have questions about your oral health, or would like a dental checkup and cleaning, please call us today at 435.723.6120 to set up an appointment. Our friendly staff is always happy to give you a healthy and clean smile you can be proud of!
