Dental Floss

In most cases, interdental brushes are preferable to dental floss because they clean more efficiently. There are, however, some interdental spaces that can only be reached using dental floss. In these cases, it makes sense to use dental floss to complete your dental care.

Specialist Floss
3-in-1 Floss from Curaprox contains individual lengths of floss.  Each length of floss has a soft but thick filament ‘brush’ section for mimicking an interdental brush, a stiff thread for inserting between teeth with precision, and a section of smooth floss for general use.

Implant and Bridge floss strands have double ended thread sections and a thick brush section, ideal for personal use when cleaning implants and bridges. 

Flossing Technique
Always keep the dental floss extremely short and move it gently backwards and forwards so that it does not cause injury or grind fissures into the tooth. Waxed dental floss is preferable, mainly because it is easier to handle than unwaxed dental floss. Stretch it between your index finger and thumb. Then insert it between two teeth and pull the floss upwards along the sides of the teeth using a gentle backwards and forwards movement.
