If people understood the importance and benefits flossing can have on your life, then people would choose to floss more often. Flossing removes plaque, food particles and tarter buildup between your teeth and along your gumline where your brush cannot reach.

As a result, flossing offers amazing protection to your oral health because of the capabilities it has on maintaining positive oral health. However, many people are unaware that there are two kinds of floss. That is why our team is here to help you understand the difference, so you can choose floss that works best for you.

Unwaxed Floss

Unwaxed floss is the traditional floss. This floss is harder to get between the teeth, but many people like it because there is no chance of wax rubbing off the floss and onto your teeth.

Waxed Floss

Waxed floss is recommended for people who struggle with flossing between the teeth. The wax helps the floss slide between your teeth, which reduces the chance of you damaging your gums. If you have teeth that are really close together, then this may be the best option for you.

As you can see there is a difference between the types of floss and it’s really a matter of personal preference.
