There are a lot of things you’ll have to choose throughout your lifetime. When it comes to the purchases that might cause you the most stress and feel like the biggest challenge, you probably don’t expect dental floss to top that list. However, you might find that as you’re standing with rows and rows of options before your very eyes that you’re really not sure where to begin or what to ultimately buy. Fortunately, your Corona dentist can help you choose floss with confidence.

Start With Texture

There are a lot of options out there. Your Corona dentist explains that you will want to ask yourself what your needs are. Or, you may simply purchase a variety to become familiar with what you have to choose from. You’ll see everything from a flat, slim tape to satin-finish stringed floss. It’s all a matter of preference, so a bit of trial and error may be required. Remember, as well, that you may choose between waxed or unwaxed (wax offers the slip you need to get between tightly neighboring teeth).

Check For ADA Seal

If the ADA accepts it, you know it will work wonders. Look for the seal as a “thumbs up” that you’re choosing an effective option.

End With Your Favorite Flavor

Well, they might not have chocolate or cherry but the dental floss options you will see before you will certainly come in a variety of flavor options. Remember that it is much more important than you might recognize that you select a flavor you find appealing. If not, your Corona dentist explains that it may end up turning you away from flossing, rather than making you feel motivated about dental hygiene.
