Dental floss

The Dental floss - A fine thread or tape, usually made of nylon, that is used to remove plaque (see plaque, dental) and food particles from hard-to-reach areas between the teeth and around the line of the gums (see flossing).

Floss may be waxed or unwaxed, and some types contain fluoride. Flossing should be carried out regularly, in addition to toothbrushing.
