During a routine cleaning at the dentist, the #1 thing that I dislike the most is the scraping of the plaque off my teeth. In order to decrease the scraping I have been advised by my dental hygienist to floss on a daily basis. I have become an avid daily flosser and I am always on the lookout for a minty useful floss that does its job. Over the years, my teeth have shifted due to my wisdom teeth (which I have not removed yet) and has caused the space between my teeth to become quite small. So the width of the floss has become a feature that I have grown accustom to looking for on the product.
Dr. Collins floss is very flexible, able to get through the narrow spaces between my teeth. It is thick enough to remove the unwanted food particles and the build up of plaque. Some flosses are too thin and do not clean my teeth and some floss is too thick to even get past the spaces in my teeth. Dr. Collins floss provides a good balance, I like the width of it and I like the smoothness and ease of the floss. The only downfall for Dr. Collins floss is that the minty taste is minimal and I wish it was more minty. I usually use J&J Reach mint waxed floss and that floss is very minty. So if you are looking for a floss that will get the job done but you may need to rinse with mouthwash after use Dr. Collins floss.

Waxed Dental Work Floss has very little "stretch" during use. Therefore, Dental Work Floss is easily used in floss holders or other flossing devices. Do not be deceived by the slight fraying that may take place during use. It will not pull or stretch loose. It will not break and it will not cut easily in the presence of rough fillings, inlays or braces.
Waxed Dental Work Floss has a low coefficient of friction…it’s super slippery! This property combined with our unique construction of microfilaments enables Dental Work Floss to slip easily between the teeth without tangling or breaking. Once between the teeth, the microfilaments fan out to form a broad cleaning area for scraping plaque off tooth surfaces, above and below the gum line. (Other advanced technology dental flosses are made from monofilament or single strand construction and cannot fan out in this fashion so they are limited in their cleaning surface area.)
