If you have gone shopping in the grocery section then you may understand the sea of dental choices can seem overwhelming. That is why our dental team at Lakeview Dental Care in Whitmore Lake, Michigan, is happy to help guide you through the sea of floss, so you know which floss is right to choose for your family and unique smile.

Flossing is an excellent tool to use that keeps your smile healthy and works to clean the hard-to-reach places between your teeth and deep along your gum line. Flossing is a vital tool to reduce the risk of cavities and fight off gum disease. That is why choosing the right product can make a great difference in the health of your smile.

Waxed floss is a popular option because it slides easier if your teeth are misaligned or have really tight spaces between your teeth. Unwaxed floss is also an excellent option, and more popular with properly aligned teeth, so your floss can slide in easily between them. Water flossers also offer great help and pressure between your teeth, which have been rising more and more in popularity. The best thing to look for on any dental product is the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance, so you know the product has been tested and approved to improve oral health.

If you have any questions about your smile or oral health, or if you feel you need a dental cleaning, please call us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jeffrey Brink today at 810-231-2288. Our friendly dental team is dedicated to helping your smile stay healthy and beautiful for years to come.
