- Easy to use
– A water irrigator, water pick, or electric flosser can help you remove food in hard-to-reach places—and is especially helpful if you have arthritis or braces or permanent dental work—but it doesn’t remove plaque
– A floss threader can aid in cleaning around braces and other dental appliances
This is one place you don’t recycle and reuse—start with about 18 inches of new floss and move to a clean section of floss for each tooth
- A flavor you like
Floss comes unflavored and in bacon, banana, breakfast, cinnamon, cupcake, mint, pickle, ranch, and wild fruit flavors.
- The right thickness
Floss must fit between each tooth so you will need to determine whether waxed and/or single strand (for tightly spaced teeth) or unwaxed and/or multistrand floss (for some spacing between teeth) is best for you
- Allergen free
Culprits may include wax and rubber
Look for store packaging AND home storage that keeps your floss germ-free
