GUM® Expanding® Floss, 43.3 Yds. Zoom

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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expanding Floss I really like this type of floss. It isn't slippery and it seems to have a little more abrasiveness when using against my teeth. My dentist uses this, and I really found that it works better than other flosses. The only complaint I have, and it does not have anything to do with the floss, is that in a previous large order of the expanding floss, I ordered, I believe, over 10 packs of this floss. In those packs of floss there were several packages that did not have expanding floss. The package indicated expanding dental floss, but it was regular floss.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried other brands- this is my favorite Over the years I have tried just about every brand and type of floss available at the local grocery stores and drug stores. A while back, my dentist started including a sample of Gum expanding floss in the goody bag I receive after each 6 month check up (also included is a Gum #495 toothbrush). I don't like waxed floss, and other unwaxed flosses often feel harsh on my gums. Not this floss. It actually feels good, there is far less bleeding, and it cleans as well or better then the other brands I have used in the past. The only negative is that it is hard to find in stores, at least around here (Chicago area). Going forward I doubt that I will ever use anything other than this product. To me, it is superior to the other brands. I really like the toothbrush, too.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from inconsistent quality When it works, this floss is superlative. By far my favorite. But I have noticed that with some product lots, the floss simply does not expand. It just remains a tight little (ineffective) cord. For a while I was buying one package at Rainbow, then going into the bathroom to try the floss, and then--if it worked--buying more packages with the same lot number. But I gave up on this strategy because it became too expensive. I have a bag full of duds. I would like to know the reason for this variation in quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only "Yarn-Type" Floss on Local Market Recently moved to Wappingers Falls/Poughkeepsie area and could not find my favorite brand of "yarn-type" floss. Reluctantly bought GUM Expanding Floss. Very good value for the price, and equal in quality to my favorite brand. Highly recommend it as it thoroughly cleans and does not shred. Glad I ran out of my favorite, as one should not depend only only one brand.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ehhh! I tried it It does indeed expand. Its like those dry sponges that are flat, then when it becomes wet it inflates. The concept is good, as you move the floss up & down it spreads to cover more surface area. But, once it fluffs it can shred get stuck. I guess it just takes more practice on my part. Its a keeper.
