GUM® Expanding® Floss, 43.3 Yds. Spool Zoom

GUM® Expanding® Floss, 43.3 Yds. Spool

SKU# 2030C

Availability: In stock


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!

    Flossing removes plaque not reached by toothbrushing alone.
    Expands during use to contact more surface area and remove dental plaque.
    Texturized nylon fibers are gentle on inflamed or sensitive gums and clean plaque away.
    GUM® Expanding® Floss, 43.3 Yds. Spool is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 118.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Use Anything Else GUM Expanding Floss is the only kind I use ever since my dentist gave me a sample. I have tight and uneven spaces that used to break and shred regular floss. That left me with bits of floss stuck painfully between teeth, almost impossible to get out. GUM expanding floss is woven so that it gets through tight spaces, but it is still expands wide enough to do a good job cleaning in the wider places. I like it so much that I order it on line by the dozens because it is not carried by our local stores. I swear by it and my wife loves it to. We have it in our bathroom, on our nightstand, by the TV, in our cars, in our desks at work!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Difference! My past dentist office was getting to be frustrating about my seeing the Dentist prior to having a necessary cleaning (for clarification purposes). Since that experience, i have been going to a Periodontist for my cleanings. This Periodontist office gave me a sample of the GUM Expanding Floss. Even provided a one-on-one class for how to use this stuff properly. The Puffy area of the stringed floss allows me to know that i have flossed correctly. I TRY to have a new container of this Expanding Floss w/me, so that whenever a colleague mentions that they have been to the dentist (woe is me story), i hand them the Expanding Floss and say give it a TRY!

    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 Fantastic Product!!!!! Floss really is Boss!!! I am a Dental hygienist and this is by far my favorite floss. Removes a lot of plaque and debris. Waxed floss is like training floss... teeth are tight when a person doesn't floss so it inserts easier but in time teeth relax. Waxed floss is like wiping up a milk spill with a plastic bag. My patients love it too.. It's almost like I have a small fan club for this stuff. I have patients come back and beg for more samples...It is difficult to find in the retail stores unfortunately. However, I am thrilled to see it can be purchased on Company Site....

    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 Best Floss Ever I can't comment on this style container yet since I'm still using up my stock of the old style however, I can comment on the floss itself. My sister, who is a dental hygienist, recommended it many years ago and I can comfirm that it is the best floss I've ever used. Expanding floss is better than other flosses in that it can get between my teeth easier than others and trap the nasty stuff that's found there. I've tried another brand of expanding floss but found that it occasionally breaks. Gum Expanding brand has never broken on me. I am a commited happy customer.
