    When I got my two new bridges, my dentist gave these to me to keep the area between the bridge and gums clean...the regular floss will cut my gums. I was skeptical, but was a believer on the 1st one! Gentle, and cleans thoroughly...it's a shame they cost so much, but considering the construction it's a pretty good value.

    Great for bridgework (and who wouldn't want to protect THAT investment?), and cleaning around misaligned teeth and gums.

    If you do not have huge spaces between your teeth, it is impossible to slide this floss thru. My fingers were in great pain after the first time I used it due to all the required pressure. The fuzzy part wore down very quickly, and that is the only reason one buys this product. I can't use it.

      Great for bridge work. Slips under easy. Love the fabric part of the floss to clean under bridge. And you can floss all your teeth with the rest of the string. 200 is a great quantity since you have to floss daily.

          This stuff is too thin to thread between my teeth and under my bridge. I've always used the PERIODONTAL version in the past and thought I'd try this cause it's cheaper. If you're like me, get the PERIODONTAL version. It holds up better when you thread it under your bridge or between your teeth. The PERIODONTAL version is a good product.

          I purchased this because Thornton's Periodontal Floss was out of stock. This product is simply a pre-cut floss strand with a smidgeon of cotton on it useful for someone with widely spaced teeth. It is not useful at all for anyone seeking the benefits of Thornton's Periodontal Floss.

          Comments about Thornton 3-in-1 All Purpose Floss, 100 strands:

          Your first impression is that this floss is very thick and couldn't possibly fit between your teeth. But it can and will definitely remove plaque. The first 3 inches are stiff, so you can thread it between braces or tight spots between teeth. The second 6" are soft, stretchy and spongy and can be stretched into a thin strand. The remaining part of the strand is sort of ropy and thick, and won't go between really crowded teeth. However, my mouth makes horrible amounts of plaque. I usually have to get my teeth professionally cleaned 4 times a year. After I started using this floss for about 2 months, my dental hygienist was shocked at the lack of plaque around my teeth. I use it once a day, in the morning. My mouth feels terrible if I forget to us it!

                          I have used this product in the past and loved it. My pharmacy did not carry it any longer so I purchased it online only to discover that the quality now is so poor that I won't even use it. The spongy filament is flimsy and the nylon floss is too thin. I'm very disappointed since I am more than willing to pay a premium price for a premium product but I won't buy this again.
