What Are Dental Floss Picks?

Dental floss picks are small plastic tools with a piece of floss at the end. The back of the tool is curved to make flossing easier. This dental tool also features a plastic pick for removing larger food particles.

Dental floss picks must be used every day to remove food and plaque. Sometimes using just a toothbrush and mouthwash is not enough to provide a good dental hygiene. Flossing prevents gum disease and cavities, and mouthwash or a water rinse should be used after flossing. The best time of the day to use dental floss picks is just before bedtime.
