Dr Tung's SmartFloss Dental Floss
There’s no floss quite like Smart Floss! It stretches and expands into inter-dental spaces for better removal of plaque and food particles. This high performance floss is suitable for everyone, even people with braces. Smart Floss dental floss is soft and stretchy, unlike other flosses, with no spring that can often hurt gums and fingers!
Smart Floss is clinically proven to be more effective than regular floss. It has been shown to remove up to 40% more plaque than some of the most popular flosses, i.e. regular waxed and un-waxed flosses and PTFE monofilament floss. Smart Floss can clean around the teeth and reach deeper into the inter-dental spaces, leaving teeth cleaner – and you smiling longer!
Like many flosses, it is made of polyester fibers. Unlike other flosses, Smart Floss® is made in a proprietary, patented process which gives that softer, expanded effect while flossing. Why don’t we use a natural material, such as silk (or cotton)? Mainly due to the heavy processing and the treatment of the silkworms. Plus it cannot be constructed in the same way as Smart Floss and thus would be less effective in disrupting plaque. Cotton is no longer used as dental floss, as it tends to fray or break easily and is harsher on gums and not as effective.
Lastly, we are proud to provide the first dental floss with a container made with EcoPure® biodegradable additive. This ensures faster breakdown if it ends up in a landfill or any active microbial environment. In addition, you can easily recycle the container (it is made of recyclable PP).
