If you wish to accurately and safely clean between your teeth, always make sure you’re using an approved interdental cleaning tool. Highly effective tools to consider using include threaded dental floss and water flossers. Whereas water flossers use beams of water to brush between teeth, threaded floss uses thread to gently remove any plaque buildup and food debris that may be present.

It is important to always practice effective techniques when flossing your teeth. In addition, always make sure you’re using the appropriate products. For product recommendations or suggestions, feel free to speak to your dentist or look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance on product packaging. This ensures the product meets necessary standards for safety and effectiveness.

Ideally, you should focus on flossing your teeth at least two minutes every single day. It is important to make sure that you are using techniques that include flossing between every single tooth and behind your teeth in the back row. In addition, never use the same strand more than once.

When flossing your teeth, try to use a strand that is long enough to effectively clean between every tooth without using the same section of the strand, as this can cause contamination to occur, as well as wrapping each end of the thread around a finger on each hand and slowly and gently move up and down between teeth as needed.
