Types of Floss

Flavoured (eg Mint) and Unflavoured Floss
Flavoured (eg Mint) and Unflavoured Floss

My thoughts: This floss has a bitter, mint flavor with a plastic-like after taste. The good news is that the flavoring doesn’t last very long. It slides easily between my teeth and is pretty shred-resistant. It is gentle on gums and has minimal slide between my finger tips. Definitely a decent floss for decent price.

Tape floss (also known as ‘dental tape’) These all have the same thing in common: they are soft, flexible and easy to use. Thread, teflon and waxed/unwaxed floss is thin whereas dental tape is thicker. Your dentist or dental hygienist will be able to recommend the most suitable floss for you. You may have to try several varieties until you find the one that suits you best.

Waxed and Unwaxed Floss
Waxed and Unwaxed Floss

A: Waxed floss has a coating that makes it easier to get floss between teeth that are tightly spaced together. Unwaxed floss isn’t coated, so it’s thinner and won’t have any flavoring. As for which is better, it depends on personal preference.
