A few years ago I had some dental work done…I had the joy of sitting through a root canal…and I also had to have one tooth pulled…If you have ever had any of that kind of stuff done, you know it’s NO FUN! I thought I had been taking good enough care of my teeth but apparently not! I also found out my mother has some kind of gum disease …since hearing that and having had that dental work done, I have become much more serious about caring of my chompers! I floss constantly! Denteks Triple Clean Floss picks are designed to make flossing easier. They combine the effectiveness if rolled floss with the convenience of floss picks
The design features :
Their mint waxed floss which effectively removes plaque and helps prevent gingivitis
A tongue scraper to remove germs and prevent bad breath.
A contoured and textured pick to remove food particles and stimulates gums.
INSTRUCTIONS (from package)
Flossing Instructions: Gently slide floss up and down between teeth allowing the floss to wrap around teeth. Clean above and below the gum line. Rinse as necessary
Pick Instructions: Place pick between teeth and gently press against the gum. Use an in and out motion to remove food particles and stimulate gums. Rinse as necessary
Tongue Scraping Instructions: Extend your tongue. Place the Tongue Scraper on the back of your tongue and pull forward, skimming the surface of your tongue. Rinse as necessary.
Caution: Adult supervision is recommended until the age of 10, Gums may bleed when you first begin to floss. If bleeding persists or gums remain red and swollen, see your dentist. Dispose of floss pick after use.
The first time I got these, the dentek website was doing a promotion and I signed up to get a 30 count bag of these for free! They sent them to me, I tried them and it’s the only floss product I buy now!
Flossing is a pretty boring subject so let me just say that these floss picks have made flossing much easier for me than using regular floss. Hard to reach places in the back of the mouth? No problem! This is designed to fit easily into your mouth to reach even the hardest to reach places...with out having to cram your fingers in to do it! The pick is great for getting things that are stuck also, and the tongue scraper...well it’s a tongue scaper! LOL! I just follow the directions for use and it works well. This has been a great convenience and addition to my home/everyday dental care! i haven't had to have any other major dental work done either! I have to say that I believe that this product has been very helpful in keeping it that way!!!
WHERE TO FIND IT
I got my last bag at Wal-Mart, however I believe you can find this at most stores that sell dental care products. I paid about $1.89 for a bag of 30 floss picks. They are available in a 90 count bag as well. Dentek also makes other varieties of floss picks and dental care products, and they sell them on their website. The website also has great flossing instruction and other information. I have included the site link below.
