Best Dental Floss

Did you know that flossing every day add years to your life? Not only does it prevent gum disease, but it protects your heart in two ways. One, flossing helps prevent bacteria buildup in inflamed gums. Once bacteria starts to grow, it circulates throughout your system and into your blodstream, causing plaque buildup and clogged arteries. Second, your bodies auto immune response to the bacteria can cause your arteries to narrow. So now that you know how important it is to floss, you know it is equally important to choose a good floss that makes it easy to follow a routine and one that is gentle to your gums, yet effective in removing plaque. Below are my tops picks.

Glide Comfort Plus Dental Floss

Oral-B Glide Pro-Health Comfort Plus Floss is my top pick for removing plaque. Sliding up to 50% more easily between tight spaces in teeth than other leading brands, this floss uses Comfort Plus Technology, making it gentle on gums. Glide is shred resistant and strong with a fresh, minty taste. A light coating of wax gives you improved grip to get to the floss where you need it to go. A great floss to add to your daily routine and my favorite for the easy way it slides between teeth without breaking.

Oral-B Complete Deep Clean Ultra Floss

Oral-B Complete Deep Clean Ultra Floss

Oral-B Complete Deep Clean Ultra Foss is a great floss for removing plaque. With their unique, textured design, the floss grabs onto plaque better than most standard flosses. This floss stretches to fit between even the closest teeth and removes plaque below the gumline for healthier teeth and gums. And for a longer lasting floss roll, the strands are pre-marked so you get the right length every time, no wasting, no extra. Oral-B is a trusted name in tooth care and this floss goes above and beyond (the gumline) to live up to its name.

Reach Total Care Floss

Reach Total Care removes up to two times more plaque than most top brands. With their patent pending MICRO-GROOVES technology, Reach’s flexible strands get between the tiny spaces to remove the most plaque. There is no shredding, sticking or pulling, just a smooth and easy slide between teeth. Flossing becomes easier and more enjoyable with no gum irritation. Reach is a great name for this floss as it really does reach below the gumline for superior plaque removal.

Oral-B Super Floss

Oral-B Super Floss

Oral-B Super Floss to the rescue for cleaning under bridges, between wide tooth gaps and braces. With a stiff end on pre-cut strands, you can thread the floss into tight spots, where the spongy floss thins out as you pull it through and then thickens and grabs on to plaque, food particles and debris, giving you a thorough clean. Great for threading under dental appliances and bridgework, where regular floss just cannot go. And for big gaps, the thicker floss strand, grabs onto plaque. And Super Floss reaches below the gumline to prevent gingivitis.

Dr. Tung's Smart Floss

Dr. Tung’s Smart Floss is another unique floss that shrinks and expands to fit between tight spaces and wide gaps. A high-performance floss that gets under the gumline for a for thorough plaque removal, yet is gentle on gums. Clinically proven to remove up to 40% more plaque than other leading brands, and is even as effective as electric flossers. With its natural cardamon flavor, your mouth is left feeling fresh and clean. And their no chemical wax blend gives you great slide with no dangerous elements.
