Do you floss your teeth properly? Are you aware that even skipping a single tooth each time you floss can still be disastrous for your oral health, as even the smallest amount of plaque buildup can put your teeth and gums in danger? Because of this, it is important to always clean around each tooth making sure not to miss any spots.

Dental flossing has many types of tools at your disposal. Choosing which choice works best for you can be both fun and exhilarating. The challenge of constantly enhancing your flossing techniques can take your smile to new levels of cleanliness that can push you up into the upper stratum of oral hygiene superstardom.

Some types of dental floss may be able to slightly whiten your teeth or even freshen your breath. However, one of the most notable features of a dental floss should be its ability to avoid tearing. Usually, single filament thread is what you should use, as it is shred resistant. If you are suffering from weak muscles or cannot floss easily and effectively, substitute interdental tools such as water flossers should be used in the place of standard flossing thread.
