Dental Floss Still #1 Choice for Cleaning Between Teeth

Cleaning between teethWhen we asked dentists what they recommend patients use to clean between teeth, dental floss was king. However, some doctors prefer interdental brushes or floss picks.

“For those patients who say they will not floss, we recommend products like Rotopoints or irrigators until we find one they can commit to,” said one dentist.

Dental floss recommendationsHere are dentists’ preferences for cleaning in between teeth, listed in order:

  1. Regular dental floss (64%)
  2. Interdental brush or cleaner (13%)
  3. Floss pick (11%)
  4. Power flosser (3%)

“I just want them to floss with something,” said a California dentist.

“If they are willing to floss, then floss is my first choice,” said a periodontist. “But most of my patients either don’t floss or have spaces between the teeth. Not only is the interdental brush more convenient and simple to use, but it does a better job.”
