Don’t Like Flossing?

Posted on: March 1st, 2016 by The DC Dentist

Flossing may not be the most exciting thing in the world, but it does help keep your mouth healthy and prevent cavities. Here are 3 items that could help make flossing an easier task between meals and before going to bed.

  • Dental Pick – It looks like a plastic toothpick with a strand of dental floss placed across a wide u-shaped tip. Its simplicity and compact form makes it easy to carry around.
  • Electric Flossers – Power and air flossers are better for areas near the gumline, while a vibrating flosser can cover the entire length of the tooth.
  • Oral Irrigator – It uses a water stream to remove plaque and food debris from in between your teeth.

If you’re not sure as to which one of these would work best with your oral hygiene routine, you can always ask your hygienist at your next cleaning appointment.
