Definitely regular floss. The picks are good and pretty convenient, but the extra plastic that has to be thrown away is really bad for the environment.
I use regular floss but thats mostly personal preference, I feel like I can clean my teeth/gums better that way but I don't know if there's any actual difference.
Whatever you like and will use regularly. I use tape floss, a friend uses super thick floss. Whose is better? Technically, probably hers. However that thick floss is a hassle and hurts my fingers and teeth. Will I use it faithfully? Nope! So tape floss for me and my teeth are happier for it. “Perfection is the enemy of the good.”
Picks! I never understood how to use traditional floss, so the picks are the best. I also have braces and have to use special orthodontic ones.
- What do you tell yourself to stay motivated to floss everyday?
- What time of day is the best time to floss for best effect?
- How best does one floss around molars? They’re hard to reach, hard to see, yet often the most in need of extra attention.
- Is it necessary to floss everyday? How does one floss properly and how do I know it’s helping? I feel like I am not doing it properly and that it’s not helping so I kind of find it hard to make it stick
- Do you always carry dental floss with you?
- How do you remember to do it?
- I am an avid user of floss picks—is there something else you suggest I try? (Water pick, standard floss, etc)
- Should I floss 1 or 2 times a day? I’m good at night only right now lol
- I’ve always brushed my teeth twice a day but it still shocked me how big a difference it made for me in oral hygiene. Did you notice any big changes?
- Should I set a timer for my flossing?
