What floss for really tight teeth??

#1 Post by Toxgirl »

I am having a hard time flossing between some teeth. I'm only on day 3 and some teeth are so tight I can't get any floss between them. I've tried the spam spam spam, Reach total care and Glide pro health and none of them can get between 2 tight spots that I've never had problems with before. I have a Waterpik but I would really like to get those two spots really clean. Any suggestions??

You might try the Dentek brushes for tight spaces. I know you can get them at the drug store and Walmart.

I remember not being able to floss my teeth for almost a week after I got my braces put on...I tried lots of different things and ended up with Oral-B Glide Pro-Health Comfort Plus Floss...it's a ribbon floss, so it flattens out against the tooth very easily.

I was going to say the ribbon floss...it is thin and can get easily between tight spots.

Crest Glide Threader Floss will get into even the tightest spots.

Oral B Glide. The flat looking ones have been amazing.

Not only do they slide into tight teeth but they don't get stuck on brackets and shred into strands like some of the weaker or fabric based floss do.

I use the Plackers Orthopick and Oral B Superfloss. Both seem to work well with really tight teeth.
