Are you seeking to improve your oral health? Have you considered what the best form of dental floss may be to help improve your oral health? There are multiple forms of dental floss to help keep your teeth clean and gums clear of plaque and bacteria. That is why choosing the best floss for you can help you improve your oral health.

Our dentists, Dr. Ronald Ranson, Dr. Leticia Fernandez-Ranson, take your oral health seriously. Our team at Ranson & Ranson DDS PC Family Dental in Morton, Illinois, is also happy to help you and your smile by sharing information on the various forms of dental floss.

Here are the multiple types of dental floss at your disposal:

– Unwaxed dental floss: Unwaxed dental floss is the opposite of waxed floss and has no slippery coatings on its surface. Unwaxed floss is not recommended for individuals with crooked or overcrowded teeth.

– Waxed floss: Wax floss is a threaded dental floss designed with a slippery and waxy substance coated across the surface of the thread. The waxy surface allows individuals to clean between teeth that are crooked or out of alignment.

– Water flossers: Water flossers are string free and can clean between teeth with solid jets of water. Water flossers are easy to use and operate.

– Floss picks: Floss picks are designed to provide a nice handle for dental floss threads. However, they are short, often making it more difficult to reach areas in your mouth.

If you have questions about your teeth, or if you need to see a dentist, please call us today at 309-866-3026 to make an appointment. Our dental team is happy to jump to your aid and assist you with your oral health concerns.
