What Type of Floss Do You Use

If you're like the majority of people in the Philippines, flossing is probably an activity you put off a little bit more often than you should. Despite the fact that the Philippine Dental Association (PDA) suggests flossing at least once a day, only a few follow this recommendation. (Or for some, they only claim to be using it, but they deceive their dentist about the frequency with which they floss.)

When my dentist diagnosed me with periodontitis, often known as gum disease, I made it a point to start using floss. It is a severe infection of the gums that can result in the loss of teeth in addition to other serious health consequences. In fact, I'm already in Stage 4, which is also known as PROGRESSIVE PERIODONTITISLoose teeth, teeth shifting, and inflamed, painful gums (often leading to an abscess) characterize this phase. Ultimately, this can cause you to lose most or all of your teeth, making even simple tasks like eating or smiling very uncomfortable.

Following a dentist's advice, I just finished a deep cleaning. In addition, I need an interdental cleaner to keep the spaces between my teeth clean on a regular basis (like floss). Cavities and gum disease could be avoided with regular interdental cleanings. also aids in the elimination of plaque, a gummy film that can cause dental problems.

WHAT INTERDENTAL CLEANER YOU USE? I'm using three types of flosses.

When it comes to cleaning those hard-to-reach areas of your teeth where plaque collects, nothing beats Cleene Clio Premium Mint Waxed Dental Floss. Having a thin layer of wax and a shred-resistant texture allows it to easily slide under the gums and between the teeth. To maintain healthy gums and teeth, it aids in removing stubborn plaque buildup.

  • Pros:  I've been using these for over a year now. This dental floss is of an exceptionally high grade. It is not brittle and readily breaks. possesses a refreshingly minty flavor. It is quite easy to slide between each tooth. And maybe best of all, in contrast to other brands, it is not slippery. This is a product that comes highly recommended from me.

  • Cons:  Because it is thicker than unwaxed floss, waxed floss is more difficult to work with when trying to fit into spaces with a smaller clearance. It is also more difficult to grip, and some people find the waxy texture unpleasant.

Unwaxxed Dental Thread Flossers Pick a classic bow that easily cleans teeth.

  • Pros:  Easy grip leads to less wasted floss and is capable of fitting in tighter spaces, making it a good option for people who have teeth that fit especially closely together in their mouths. You can also use it as a toothpick. Very affordable for P18 only.

  • Cons:  During use, individual strands may become frayed, shredded, or broken due to the material's low level of tensile strength.

Watson's Love My Smile Mint Dental Floss Picks include a round thread that is resistant to shredding. The bristles of a regular toothbrush can't reach between the teeth or below the gum line, but these tools can. Its bendable, curved tail end can be used as a toothpick to help scrape away stuck morsels.

  • Pros:  With its fifty separate strands of floss, this pick provides a more thorough cleaning than a regular toothbrush. Included is a micro-textured pick for a more thorough cleaning and a tongue scraper to help eliminate bacteria that can lead to bad breath. A flexible, curved tail-end helps safely remove trapped food debris.

  • Cons:  Wax-coated floss is more cumbersome to work with than unwaxed floss when passing through narrow openings. Additionally, the waxy texture can be off-putting to some, making it harder to hold.

Taking care of one's teeth and gums is a very individual part of the self-care rituals we all engage in on a daily basis. When we take good care of our teeth, gums, and mouth, it benefits not only our appearance but also our overall health. If you take care of your teeth and gums, you can reduce the amount of plaque and bacteria in your mouth, which can prevent tooth decay. For the most part, we are all aware of the basics of good dental hygiene; however, I am hoping that this article will shed some light on how you can go the extra mile to achieve that gleaming grin.

So, tell me, what kind of floss do you use?

BTW, here's a photo from my most recent appointment with the dentist.
