Just brushing the teeth is often not enough to remove plaque and leftover bits of food from the interdental space between the teeth. Flossing is an effective way to remove the build-up of food debris and plaque that can build-up throughout the day.
Including flossing in your daily oral hygiene routine can remove the build-up of bacteria and plaque between the teeth and prevent gum disease, tooth decay and in extreme circumstances, tooth loss.
Safe and Sound Health’s Black Waxed Dental Floss easily slides between even tight teeth, reaching the most difficult areas in the mouth to clean and remove plaque and food debris. Infused with menthol oils, our Black Waxed Dental Floss leaves your mouth clean, healthy and fresh. Our Black Waxed Dental Floss is part of our charcoal dental range, a range of dental care products designed to work with charcoal toothpaste and other charcoal dental cleaning products.

How to use
Brushing alone is not enough to remove leftover food and plaque from the space between the teeth. Flossing is an effective way to reach the interdental space and clean between the teeth:
- Break off a piece of Safe and Sound Health’s Black Waxed Dental Floss around 18 inches/45cm long, and wind most of it around your middle finger
- Wind the remaining floss around the same finger on the opposite hand
- Hold about 1-2 inches of the floss tightly between your thumb and forefingers, leaving no slack
- Gently guide the floss between your teeth using a ‘rocking’ or ‘zig-zag’ motion (Take care not to snap the floss into the gums)
- When you reach the gum line curve the floss into a ‘C-shape’ against one of the teeth until you feel resistance
- Gently scrape the floss down the side of the tooth, moving the floss away from the gumline. Repeat for every tooth and as you move into each tooth, unroll a fresh section of floss from your finger
Start flossing the top teeth, working from the left to the right. Then move to the bottom teeth, again working left to right. This will make it less likely you will miss a tooth
- Don’t forget to floss the back of the last tooth
- Be gentle but thorough
- Throw away the piece of floss when you are finished and use a fresh piece every time you floss
