Importance of Dental Floss

Dental floss is a cord of thin threads used to remove food debris from in between the teeth. When used correctly floss can remove plaque and food particles from in between the teeth and under the gum line, areas a tooth brush is unable to reach. The build-up of plaque can cause decay and gum disease which can be prevented by the daily use of dental floss.
There is a huge variety of dental flosses available including waxed and unwaxed options. Floss also comes in different thickness, which is a factor to be considered when choosing the right floss based on the tightness of the contact area between the teeth.
