Is one kind of dental floss better than the others, or is it all a matter of preference?

Some dentists feel that unwaxed floss may remove more plaque. I have always felt that whichever product works the best and is the easiest for you to use is the best. If floss gets shredded, stuck, or torn in half in your teeth, it’s probably a sign that a dental procedure is needed.
