Dental floss & toothpicks
CURAPROX dental floss & toothpicks, whether for natural teeth or implants: dental floss is sometimes an invaluable tool.. Floss used in interdental spaces where teeth are tightly packed together can be very effective. However, not all interdental spaces are the same and so consideration needs to be given to the best cleaning method for all. To be honest, we actually have three reasons for disliking dental floss: firstly, it’s not easy to use effectively. Secondly, it stretches tautly across concave surfaces and often fails to clean them properly, if at all! Thirdly, it can and often does cut into the gum causing bleeding. However saying this, people who know how to use dental floss correctly are able to clean the gaps that even the smallest interdental brush, such as our CPS 06 prime, is unable to reach: between the front teeth and some of the side teeth. Please ensure you ask your dental professional which gaps you should clean with dental floss and which to clean with an interdental brush, making sure you are clear on which size brush to use where.
