There are numerous kinds of floss from which to choose in order to meet your flossing needs. While unwaxed floss is the best for closely spaced teeth, waxed floss is more resistant to breaking but more difficult to use in tightspaces. For cleaning between teeth that are loosely spaced dental tape (waxed or unwaxed) is a good choice because it is broader and flatter than traditional floss. Yarn-like "super floss" is stiff enough to be threaded throughimplants, bridges, and other dental restorations. If you have difficulty holding floss and/or fitting your fingers into your mouth, try using the Y-shaped plastic tool known as a floss holder, which holds a length of floss between twoprongs.
