Rated 1 out of 5 by PR 0676 from GUM Flossmate I am an oral cancer survivor. My oral hygiene is extensive to continue to maintain my teeth after radiation therapy. The floss handle I had for many years finally broke so I purchased GUM Flossmate Floss Handle. Unfortunately this handle is too short (I limited ability to open my mouth as a side effect of radiation treatment) , the grooves for the floss are not deep enough to maintain tension ( the floss slips off) and the "fingers" curve to deep. I am very very disappointed and would not recommend this handle. Please consider changing the design and adding measurements in the description of your flosser

Rated 5 out of 5 by W.B.H. 1164 from Great Product; Flossing made Easy! I've been looking for a floss-handle like the Flossmate for several months, and failing to find one in any area drugstores, I opted to order the Flossmate from GUM's website. I am extremely impressed with how easy it is to use; it holds the floss tense enough to get between tight spaces, but loose enough to work the floss across the curves and around the gumlines. I'm using about 2 inches less floss per flossing with the Flossmate than I did flossing by hand, and I'm not cutting off circulation to the tips of my fingers anymore! Thanks GUM! I would definitely recommend the Flossmate to a friend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom 0444 from GB I had an older "model" green colored one that had a metal post to wrap the floss around. However, to keep the floss tight enough to be taut ,even though I wrapped it around the post many times, it still came loose. This is a great improvement and solves that problem because their is no metal post that can come loose, it's part of the handle itself and it works like a charm. It doesn't come loose and therefore it remains taut and does an excellent job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Therese from Dental Floss Holder I bought this dental floss holder many years ago. I just love it but I would like to give some to my sons and daughter but I cannot find this holder any more. Can someone help me to find a location to get these dental floss holders?

Rated 5 out of 5 by NoahDuh 1151 from Can't live without it! I have a small mouth and still have my wisdom teeth; so I have very tight teeth. I have been using this flossmate handle for umpteen years. It became hard to find a few years ago, so whenever I found them, I bought the entire stock because I manage to break them about every 3 months. Now I have finally had to find them at the Gum" brand site. I'm so glad they sell them here!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Janice Jenkins 0523 from OK-Needs Improving I previously used floss picks shaped similar to this floss handle. I assume the floss picks have been discontinued as I haven't been able to purchase them in a while. This floss handle needs to be shorter in length and a little less wide in order to make it easier to use, in my opinion. If these changes could be made, I think it would be pretty close to being perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karen 0432 from At Last Years ago I had bought the floss handle in a store and loved the product. Approximately 3 years later, the product needed to be replaced, but could no longer find it in stores.I was very happy to find the product online. It is still a wonderful product, and much easier to use than single disposables.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Graphyte 0499 from Works great but breaks. Floss Handle works great, but I have tight gaps between my teeth so I put a lot of pressure on the handle and breaks after a couple a months. Perhaps a stronger material could be used.
