There are many different kinds of floss and flossing aids to help keep your oral health on track. It is important to realize the best floss is the kind that is most effective for you and your mouth. If you have large gaps between your teeth you should try a thick or woven floss or tape. Use thin, waxed floss for crowded teeth or tight contacts. If dexterity or just having big hands is an issue, try water piks, electric flossers or floss sticks. For braces try picks, wedges or small brushes. You don't have to choose just one.
