You may be new to the process or may wish to integrate it more strongly into your daily routine. Whatever the reason,you need to remember that the best product is the one that is most convenient for you to use in your everyday life.

RECENT RESEARCH

Results of a recent survey showed that there is no difference in plaque removal, comparing four different kinds of dental floss. (In this study there were twenty-five people involved and they all used different kinds of product). By using all of these products the amount of dental plaque was significantly decreased, much more than it would only by brushing.Furthermore,the electronic one was the one that removed far more plaque accumulated on the teeth,comparing to the other types.

COMPARING ELECTRONIC DENTAL FLOSS WITH THE SIMPLE TYPE.

In another survey seventy eight persons were assigned to use either electronic or plain dental floss. After thirty days of use, it was observed that there was significantly less plaque than before. We come to the conclusion that both types are equally effective. Moreover, no injuries were noticed associated with flossing, and therefore they are both completely safe.

BENEFITS OF ELECTRONIC ONE

Many people can benefit from the use of electronic flossing, particularly older people who may have trouble using the simple type. Also, young children and teenagers might entertain themselves more by using the electronic floss,especially when they are also using an electronic toothbrush.

TIPS CHOOSING THE SUITABLE PRODUCT

1) Do you have large gaps between your teeth? If yes, then use dental tape or Super floss.

2) No big gap between your teeth? The best option for you then is the  waxed one.

3) For greater convenience choose a disposable one.

4) Do you have braces, bridges or crowns?Then a thicker floss sponge-like is the choice for you. (Spongy floss)
