Definition : Soft dental materials consisting of a thread or thin tape designed to clean the interdental spaces (i.e., dental floss) by dislodging debris. Dental floss is usually available in small plastic containers (dispensers) that contain from 10 to 50 meters (30 to 150 feet) of floss. Typically the user pulls out the desired amount of floss and then cuts it using a protected blade included on the container. Dental floss may be waxed or not, some dental floss may be also flavored. Dental floss is used at home and in healthcare facilities for personal hygiene of the mouth.
