Getting my children to floss is a challenge. I found similar flossers for those without braces at the dollar store, but they don't fit for those with braces. These work for braces, so there's no excuse not to floss. One side of the flosser is thin enough to fit between the braces, so there is no need to thread floss or do any of the other recommendations that are so complicated that your child won't do it.

Not at all pleased with this product. The idea is great, but the reality of it is disappointing. The floss needs to fit more tightly and be stronger so it will not shred and separate. It's hard to imagine a child/teen having the patience to untangle the floss thread without pulling a bracket loose. I'll stick with the self-threading floss.

            I bought this to use while wearing braces. It only was effective on a few front teeth! does NOT fit under wires rendering it useless. I just use it where I have no braces.

              the "spatula" end is not thin enough to get under wires of braces on molars. ok on front teeth but shredded immediately.

                Bought it for my 10 years old daughter who has brace. We were headache to use other brand that can't clean it well. She loves it very much as it is easy to handle and clean well. It is worth to pay!!!

                    We got these for my son when he got braces. They work perfectly to clean between his teeth; the flat part goes right under the wire. Our orthodontist office offered another product just ilke this one for $17 a bag; I was so relieved to find these at a great price. And of course drugstore.com has super fast shipping. Win!

                      These are wonderful. I have two ortho patients in my house, so they are a real time saver for my girls. So much easier to use than threader floss! Yay! That means more sleep and quicker to bed!

                      These are the only "special" flossers that I have found to work for my kids, with their braces. Even with these, they still needed the tech at the orthodontist to show them how. But these are the only ones we've had any overall luck with. So glad to find them :)

                      Getting my children to floss is a challenge. I found similar flossers for those without braces at the dollar store, but they don't fit for those with braces. These work for braces, so there's no excuse not to floss. One side of the flosser is thin enough to fit between the braces, so there is no need to thread floss or do any of the other recommendations that are so complicated that your child won't do it.
