Many individuals have undergone the treatment of dental implants to restore their lost teeth. Usually referred to as a gear implant, a gear implant is a small insert that is installed to Jawbone to make artificial teeth. More than 90 percent of the gear implants placed are currently produced from titanium, and shaped like a small screw.

After patients undergo dental implant treatment, their dental implants will advise them about taking their right new dental care, to ensure that the dental implant last long. One end that is usually recommended by the implantologist tooth is with a yarn regularly, around implants and teeth.

What is Dental Floss?

The term teeth thread is wrong, because the thread used to clean teeth is usually made of cotton or nylon fibers, rather than any type of ‘thread’. The fiber used in making dental floss is very thin, and is assembled with each other to form a string that can be stretched. They are generally available in different flavors such as peppermint, strawberries, cinnamon, and even bacon. In addition, there are various types of threads for different requirements.

Some types of teeth that can be suggested for patients who have undergone dental implant treatment are:

Wax Coated Floss: This type of dental floss is not frayed easily like other types of threads. However, it can be much thicker than threads that are not coated with candles.

FLOSS UNWAXED: This thread is more affordable than wax thread. However, it is usually broken very easily, especially when cleaning around implants and teeth. Sometimes, it might also hold on to the implant, or cause squeaking sounds, when running on the metal.

Floss coated Teflon: This floss is easier between prosthetic teeth that are moored by natural dental and dental implants. The main disadvantage of this type of thread is the lower cleaning power, compared to non-Teflon threads.

The thread with fluoride: generally added to toothpaste or recommended in a diet, fluoride helps protect teeth enamel, and prevents sugar acid forming in the mouth. Dental floss containing fluoride helps prevent generations of glycolysis in the mouth.

Chlorhexidine relieves thread: Chlorhexidine is known to prevent bacterial and germ growth, and also combat dental caries. Usually costs more than other types of teeth.
The type of dental yarn listed above is usually available in different thickness for different needs. If you are wondering which type of thread is right for you, ask your dental implantologist, which will be able to suggest the most suitable, depending on your specific case.
