GUM® Expanding® Floss, 43.3 Yds.

GUM® Expanding® Floss, 43.3 yd.


SKU# 2030C

GUM® Expanding dental floss is designed and manufactured to help you remove plaque from the hard-to-reach areas between teeth which have larger gaps, while also cleaning effectively in more regular spaces between the teeth. In use, the floss expands forming a larger diameter string that contacts more surface area around the gaps. Large gaps often occur due to gum recession and papilla loss, both consequences of periodontitis.

GUM® Expanding dental floss is lightly lubricated with wax for easy handling and insertion between the teeth, and expands during use to clean the tooth surfaces adjacent to the wider gaps more effectively. The floss has a texturized nylon construction that is more gentle on the gums due to its wider diameter than regular fine floss. This is a specialized product to help make between-teeth cleaning easier and more effective for people with irregular or large gaps between their teeth or those who find fine floss too narrow.

Clean between the teeth with GUM® dental floss or an interdental brush at least once per day to remove dental plaque from areas not reached by toothbrushing alone and where tooth decay and gum disease often occur!

4 Useful Expanding Floss

The GUM brand's Expanding Dental Floss is really nice to have around, especially when you want a string floss to fluff up and have some volume during use. This reduces the sharpness of the floss around the gums. My only wish is that a version of this product would be available without any wax in it. Wax does not work well for cleaning, since it glides over the tooth surface, and simply does not do a great job of scraping residues on the tooth surface. Additionally, wax is hydrophobic, and it does not do a great job of holding cleanser volume while flossing. Flossing in the presence of toothpaste (or cleanser) really helps to clean around tooth surfaces under the gum line. Dear GUM Brand folks, please manufacture an unwaxed version of the expandable floss! Thank you.

5 Best Floss Ever

Up until discovering this floss, I have had problems finding a floss I could be comfortable with. My teeth are tightly spaced so that a lot of flosses would shred and break before I could even work a piece between my teeth. When I could find a thin floss, I wasn't always sure it was removing what it should. This floss does everything I want it to. My semi-annual teeth cleanings are so short and easy now. Love this stuff!!

5 This is just amazing

If you happen to have crowns this floss is just amazing. Give it a try, you won't regret it. Note that you should not be using this as a traditional floss where you pull down or up, you just slide out through one end.

5 Great stuff!

If this is the floss that used to be packaged in a purple hexagon box, *I LOVE THIS FLOSS*!! As a dental hygienist, I am always on the look out for exceptionally good materials to grab the plaque and remove it from tooth surfaces. The super-slick-easy-side-thru stuff has no grab and will remove some particles, but not remove the plaque matrix in order that the gum tissue may heal properly. The woven/expanding floss does quite nicely and feels gentle on the gums.

5 Good for teeth with gaps

Works as advertised. Its not very slippery, and so it does a good job picking up gunk between teeth.
