Floss Pick Facts For Austin

fast teeth whitening Austin

At The Hills Dental Spa in Austin, we want all our patients to keep their teeth as clean as possible. But we know a lot of them want convenience. That’s why so many use floss picks instead of conventional dental floss.

These little tools are quite handy. They usually have a handle that is pointed and can double as a toothpick, and a length of floss strung in a U-shaped groove. They are affordable and can be used more discretely than floss.

While this may seem like a dream come true, floss picks are, in fact, a step below actual floss when it comes to effectiveness. The American Dental Association has only approved dental floss for cleaning in between teeth.

One of the issues with floss picks is that they can’t curve around teeth, which is necessary for thorough plaque removal.

What to do? If you love floss picks, continue to use them when convenient. But try to use regular dental floss, too, especially at the end of the day.

At The Hills Dental Spa in Austin, we want all our patients to enjoy health healthy smiles. Our services include cosmetic dentistry. Call to schedule your next cleaning and checkup with us today!
