Flossing Options: Waxed or Unwaxed Floss

Do you find yourself wondering if you are receiving the best care out of your over the counter dental products? If so, you are not alone. With a sea of choices to choose from, how do you know what dental product is best for you?

Here at McBride Dental in San Marcos, California, our professional staff is happy to help you in your choices when it comes to keeping your smile healthy. That is why, we have decided to talk to you about the differences in your flossing options, so you can better determine which floss is right for you.

There are two main types of floss: waxed and unwaxed floss.

Waxed floss:
Waxed floss has a waxy, slick coating that is great to use for people who have tight teeth or tight wedges in your teeth. The wax coating helps your wax slide gentler between your teeth to help remove the plaque and tartar buildup between them and along the gum line. This is a great choice for people who have limited space between teeth.

Unwaxed floss:
Unwaxed floss has a great fiber material that works excellent between the teeth and deep in the gum line. This is a fantastic option for people who have straighter teeth where the floss can go easily between your teeth and along your gum line.

One important factor to remember about dental floss, is no matter which floss you choose, having any floss to help remove the bacteria and food particles from your teeth and gums can help your smile stay healthy and strong. Any dental floss is better than no floss at all.

If you would like to learn more or feel it’s time for a dental checkup, please call us today at 760-471-1003. We are happy to help turn your smile and lead you to positive oral health. So, don’t delay in choosing which product to you, call us today and we can help guide you to the best choices for you and your family’s particular needs.
