Dental floss is a thin, nylon string that is used to remove food and plaque from the teeth. The floss is inserted between the teeth and scrapes along the sides of the teeth, especially close to the gums. Dental floss comes both waxed and unwaxed.

How to use Dental floss

The Canadian Dental Association advises that it is important to floss before brushing, and to floss once or more per day. The association also advises to wrap the floss around the tooth in a 'C' shape, and to wipe the tooth from under the gumline (gently) to the tip two or three times.
