Dental floss was first introduced to the public from a New Orleans dentist in 1815, who encouraged his patients to clean in between teeth with the use of a thin silk.
Dental floss helps in cleaning the teeth particularly food trapped in between the teeth where brush can’t reached . It also removes the film of bacteria or plaque. It is recommended by the ADA to floss once a day whether in the morning or before bed time. There are various types of floss to choose like waxed, unwaxed, thick or comfort floss
