How do you get dental floss out of your teeth?

My dental floss rips and shreds and then I am more uncomfortable as I then have food and dental floss stuck inthat small space. What won’t shred and get rid of this uneasy feeling.

Use a floss that says it doesn’t shred such as Glide, Satin Floss, Eze Thru, Eze Slide or Colgate Total floss. Now floss through the problem area but don’t try to floss back out simply let go of one end of the floss and pull it through the side with the other end. If this hasn’t solved your problem try flossing with a double piece of floss or tie a small knot in your floss then floss with a smooth piece, let go and pull the knotted area through between the teeth and remove everything.

  1. Try Glide floss; it goes between tight contacts very easily.

  3. Try waxed floss. floss can shred if ur teeth is vry close together n they space inbetween is vry tight. there could b another reason for ur floss to shred also which is cavity in the interdental surfaces of ur teeth (holes inbetween ur teeth). if the floss still shreds whn using waxed floss, go for ur dental check up to check if anythin is wrong wif ur dentition.
