Why choose Floss pick over Traditional floss?
A floss pick is a small plastic tool that has a piece of floss attached to the curved end. Here are some of its main benefits:
- Easy to Use — One of the main advantages of a floss pick is that you don’t have to fuss with gripping a long piece of floss. The tool’s design is easy to handle, making it a whole lot simpler to floss your teeth all the way in the back.
- Double Purpose — The end of a floss pick is tapered into, well, a pick that you can use to dislodge any large pieces of food stuck right near the surface of teeth or even along your gum line.

While Traditional floss (string) has been proven to be just as effective and maybe gives you more flexibility, here are the main drawbacks of using it:
- More Difficult to Use — Some people feel like it’s a hassle handling a long piece of floss (such as young kids or those with arthritis), especially when it comes to getting in those hard-to-reach areas in the back of the mouth.
- Can Be Abrasive — If you’re not gentle or careful, or if you have sensitive gums, flossing may cause irritation.
