Filling gaps for refinishing a solid oak flooring

I had a bad plumbing leak behind a wall and the way I found out about the leak was my oak floor boards started warping and curling etc...Anyway, I've repaired the leak, let everything dry and I removed the ruined floorboards and replaced them. I'm about to sand and refinish all my floors. I'm wondering what the best product to use to fill the cracks between the floorboards is. There aren't that many cracks but I dont want to screw my floors up at this point. Anybody have any advice?

I don't refinish floors so cannot advise the best product, Jasco is known for all types of fillers.
Do a search for trowelable wood fillers.

Here's 2 examples I found quickly:

Full-Trowel Filler
Full-Trowel Filler is thinner than Wood Patch, and designed to spread across the surface of the wood floor. Just pour a workable puddle and trowel the floor, going back and forth across the cracks and voids to ensure deep penetration, removing excess filler as you go. 3 1/2-gallon bucket fills up to 3,000 square feet. Available in 1-gallon (15 pounds) and 3 1/2-gallon containers (55 pounds), in all 16 colors listed above.
1.Pour moderate amount of DuraSeal® Trowelable Wood Filler in needed area.
2.Press filler into cracks and holes using an even-edge trowel.
3.Allow to fully dry before doing final sanding.
4.Sand surface to remove excess DuraSeal® Trowelable Wood Filler.

I assume these are just minor cracks that are normally between some boards ?
Fillers work great for minor cracks.
