Floss Pick Facts For Sacramento

fast teeth whitening Sacramento

Dental patients who live in the Carmichael, Fair Oaks, and Elk Grove area want to keep their mouths as healthy and clean as possible. However, they are also looking for convenience, and that’s why many of them turn to floss picks instead of old-fashioned 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 inexpensive and can be used more discretely than floss.

While this may seem like a dream come true for those hoping to make flossing a more regular part of their oral health routine, floss picks are still a step below actual floss in effectiveness.

 

The American Dental Association has only approved dental floss for cleaning in between teeth. One issue is that floss picks can’t curve and form the angles needed for superior cleaning.

So, what is a responsible dental patient to do? The first thing is to talk to your Sacramento, California dentist and see what their opinion is. If you love floss picks, continue to use them when convenient, but still try to use regular dental floss daily.
