Let’s start at the bottom. You know us, we like to stay very positive and ‘forward focused’ dental vacuum forming machine. In this case, we’re going to have to set that desire aside and just share our take on these ‘ez flosser’ type designs. We recently committed a whole article detailing why these flosser picks are not a healthy option. Health Benefit & Risk/Best Use: This design of ‘flosser’ can damage gum tissue by ‘snapping’ between the teeth. (Like an archery bowstring snapping down into sensitive gum tissue.) An even larger problem is the very real risk of ‘seeding’ bad bugs from an infected pocket throughout the mouth because you’re using the same little piece of floss for each contact. Environmental friendliness: Flossers are a one time use piece of plastic. In fact, if you keep your eyes open for them, you’ll see them everywhere polluting the ground, from parking lots to playgrounds. Ugg! Quality of floss/ingredients: Given that you run the risk of damaging gum tissue and moving bad bugs around the mouth and that they teach poor flossing habits and market to children, we don’t have any positive comments here. Cost value: $.04 per flosser pick. One good thing about these flossers is they are cheap! Oral B Glide Health Benefit & Risk/Best Use: Glide type flosses have become very popular in recent years portable dental unit. The benefit to glide or ‘tape’ flosses is they don’t snag on restorations and shred. However, this ‘benefit’ is also a bummer as these tape design flosses really don’t do anything when you floss with them. I’ve unsuccessfully tried to remove food particles after a meal using tape flosses. Bottom line, tape flosses simply don’t remove plaque as well and we really question their ability to disrupt bad bugs too. Environmental Friendliness: plastic packaging, plastic dispenser Quality of floss/ingredients: Glide flosses are made from Teflon. The full, more revealing name of Teflon is Polytetrafluoroethylene. We have bolded a certain portion of the component to bring your attention to it. Teflon is a fluoride compound. Sure, you aren’t eating it, but still… Needless to say, we aren’t fans of glide type flosses. Oral B complete SatinTape Health Benefit & Risk/Best Use: Ok, you already know how little we like glide like flosses, so we don’t need to cover that again. I guess if I had to find a benefit of tape flosses, they are easier on the fingers while using the floss. (Whew, I found one.) Environmental Friendliness: plastic packaging, plastic dispenser Quality of floss/ingredients: Not like I need to throw another glide floss under the bus, but this was weird so I wanted to share it with you. Most glide/tape like flosses are really, really smooth. I imagine because those are made from Teflon. However, this satin tape was inconsistent and even had some bumpy feeling stuff on the floss. Call me silly, but when I’m about to use something to clean my mouth, I want it to feel clean to my hands. This floss has little goobers (for lack of a technical term) on the floss. Sorry SatinTape lovers, this one’s not for me.  Is Dry Mouth A Problem? for more information.
