Floss Pick Facts For Fishers

fast teeth whitening Indianapolis

For the best dental health, one thing you need to do is keep your teeth as clean as possible. That means brushing and flossing on a regular basis. At Dental Care Today in Fishers, we know a lot of our patients are looking for convenience. That’s why many of them turn to floss picks instead of conventional dental floss.

These little tools are quite handy. They usually have a handle that is pointed and can double as a toothpick, and a length of floss strung in a U-shaped groove. They are cost-effective and can be used more discreetly than a strand of regular floss.

This may seem like a dream come true for those who want to make flossing a regular part of their dental health routine. But floss picks are a step below actual floss when it comes to effectiveness.

The American Dental Association has only approved standard dental floss for cleaning in between teeth. Floss picks just don’t cut it, because they can’t curve and form the angles needed for superior cleaning.

What is a responsible dental patient to do?

The first thing is to talk to us. If you love floss picks, continue to use them when convenient. But try to use regular dental floss daily.

At Dental Care Today in Fishers, we’re always happy to answer questions about flossing and other dental health concerns. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
