What are dental floss holders?

Dental floss holders help you floss your teeth if you have trouble doing it with floss alone. They work by securing the floss on plastic or wooden holders and are useful if you have trouble flossing with your hands. Dental floss holders are threaded each time and can be used over and over again but you can also buy disposable flossers that are already pre-threaded with dental floss. The most important thing about cleaning between your teeth is that you do it every day.
A dental floss holder, or pre-threaded flosser, is a device that makes it easier to floss your teeth. It can be useful for people with limited dexterity, those who are just learning to floss, and caregivers who need to floss someone else’s teeth.
