I tested a sample I received from the dentist and thought it worked great. Tried to find at quite a few different stores with no luck and ordered on line. I've tried many different flosses, but this is my favorite so far. Really helps get in tight spots and with the floss expanding helps romove the plaque.

GUM disappoints

Clever idea but unfortunately falls short. This stuff expands when it gets wet and saliva isn't enough to make it do that while flossing. As for the floss itself, it's thin easily slides...Read complete review

Clever idea but unfortunately falls short. This stuff expands when it gets wet and saliva isn't enough to make it do that while flossing. As for the floss itself, it's thin easily slides between thin teeth, but doesn't seem all that effect. Have fun watching it expand in the trash!

    I have used this floss ever since my hygienist gave me a free sample. It is the best, most gentle floss I have ever used. I floss daily and have had wonderful checkups since I began using it. Never could do daily flossing with other flosses.

    my dentist gives out samples of this stuff when I go for cleanings and I really wish I worked there so I could take home a healthy amount. I this stuff. I hate flossing but you have to do it. This stuff really gets in there and pulls all the food out. I love the expandable feature to get every little corner. I normally buy extra if you can save $2 or $3 when you buy more. its a litle pricey but my teeth are worth it

          Intent on getting a better floss, I did my research and ordered this and the
          BioFloss. Have not used the latter one yet. But this one is working out well. It has never broken, shreds only a tiny amount at times, cleans effectively and is easy to grip meaning you actually can get by using a short length thereby saving some money. (in other words, you don't need to wind a lot around your fingers for it to hold). Its difficult to judge the expanding feature of the product just because its difficult to see or sense that aspect but its obvious how it does expand just from looking at after you have used it. Not sure how well that works when you have it stretched tight however. It gets between my closely spaced teeth without any problem. I have a few wider gaps too and the expanding feature helps there I would think though I do have to work it around some. Maybe a bit pricey for the amount you get but not too bad. Came close to giving it 5 stars but it didn't quite rise to the level of "Love it!"

            Having closely spaced teeth, the expanding is easy to slide between the teeth but as it expands, it cleans around the wider spaces at the gums. It does not cut into the gums either. It does sometimes break but far less frequently than other flosses.

              This is a staple for me: I order at least 10 of these at a time and bc these are so hard for me to find--I live in fear that Drugstore.com would stop carrying these.

              I am quite the product junkie (I would buy things everyday to try out if I could) and out of the numerous items on my list--this is the one I would seriously hate to live without.

              Kind of gross: I have mild periodontitis (inflammation in the gums) and this floss is great at getting all the plaque and stuff out of all my gum pockets (as I think they're called?). My dental hygienist was actually suprised with how much I could decrease the inflammation and it was mostly thanks to daily use of this!

                I was given samples by my dentist at each visit but never used because I was a dedicated Glide user. My dentist also recommended Superfloss to clean difficult areas between my teeth -- which I tried. This product is a combination of regular floss and Superfloss. I tried this product sample after I had run out of my regular floss and I loved it. I have tight contacts between my teeth and this floss easily fits between my teeth and does an excellent job getting out debris, especially around my wisdom teeth, my crown, and one area where spacing is a bit larger. Product does not shred and leave string between the teeth. I can see and feel the difference. Purchased 4 packs and will reorder when low.
