Dr. Tung's Smart Floss - 30 Yards / 27 m

Dr. Tungs Smart Floss with New Biodegradable Dispenser! There's no other floss quite like Dr.Tung's Smart Floss. It stretches and expands into interdental spaces for better removal of plaque and food particles. This high-performance floss is suitable for everyone - people with tight spaces, wider spaces... even braces.

This revolutionary floss is also great for gums. You see, Smart Floss dental floss is gentler on gums because it is cushion-soft and can stretch. Unlike those other flosses with no spring that can often hurt gums... and fingers!

Smart Floss dental floss is clinically proven to be more effective than regular floss. It has been shown to remove up to 40% more plaque than some of the most popular flosses, i.e. regular waxed and unwaxed flosses and PTFE monofilament floss (compare to Glide).

Even electric or manual flossers which claim to be as effective as regular floss are no match for Smart Floss. Smart Floss can clean around the teeth and reach deeper into the interdental spaces, leaving teeth cleaner and you smiling longer!

Now there's no excuse to use a less effective floss.

  • Natural cardamom flavor for a vibrant fresh feeling!
  • Lightly waxed with natural wax blend (no petrochemical wax)
  • Biodegradable container

Smart Floss: removes up to 50% more plaque

Experimentation In Plaque Control In the Interproximal Spaces Using Dental Floss: Genoa University, Medicine & Surgery Faculty, Preventive Dentistry dept. January 2004

Smart Floss, which expands during use and, specifically, when subjected to mechanical tension delivers better interdental plaque removal and helps reduce gingival bleeding.

Trial Objectives
Certification of the efficacy of Smart Floss dental floss by comparison with other marketed dental floss types.

Trial Materials & Methods
The supposed efficacy of Smart Floss was verified by comparison with three of the most widely used and marketed types of dental floss, in order to verify which was best suited to the needs of the patients examined.

The trial involved 40 patients divided into 4 groups.

  1. The first group used a waxed dental floss (green container), with the following technical characteristics: Regular, PA 6.6, Dtex 940/136, similar to Oral B traditional waxed dental floss.
  2. The second group used a monofilament dental floss (light blue container), with the following technical characteristics: PTFE, Dtex 1200, folded, slightly waxed similar to Crest Glide Floss.
  3. The third used a fine dental floss (neutral container), with the following technical characteristics: Fine, PA 6.6, Dtex 700/104), similar to Butler Fine unwaxed floss.
  4. The fourth group used Smart Floss floss (white container).

The bacterial plaque index – applying O'LEARY's (PCR) technique, using a bi-tonal plaque indicator – was measured in each patient at the beginning and end of the trial:

The patients did not have professional oral hygiene care but were instructed in oral hygiene technique with the use of toothbrush and dental floss.

The patients were re-examined after two weeks.

All patients had integral anatomical papillary structure. They were not informed of the type of dental floss used.

TRIAL CONCLUSIONS
All patients showed clinical improvement from the first to the second examination two weeks later, independent of the type of dental floss used.

The inter-group differences are significant, in particular with reference to the plaque index: the use of Smart Floss delivered a mean reduction of almost 70%, notably superior to other flosses.

Further, Smart Floss was more efficacious with respect to the other dental flosses in the removal of dental plaque in patients with moderate to severe parodontitis.

Observations:

  • Smart Floss users showed superior plaque reduction - between 33.9% and 58% better than each of the 3 individual flosses.
  • Smart Floss users showed superior plaque reduction - 43.92% better than the average of the other three dental flosses.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is Smart Floss eco-friendly?
Smart Floss® is one of the most eco-friendly, effective dental flosses available.

Container: Smart Floss® is the first dental floss with a container made with EcoPure biodegradable additive. This ensures faster breakdown if it ends up in a landfill or any active microbial environment. In addition, you can easily recycle the container (it is made of recyclable PP).

Wax: To ensure comfortable flossing and to keep the fibers performing effectively, Dr. Tung's uses a small amount of a vegetable and bees wax blend. To this they add their acclaimed cardamom oil aroma. They do not use petrochemical waxes or artificial flavors.

Floss material: Like many flosses, Smart Floss® is made of polyester fibers. Unlike other flosses, Smart Floss® is made in a proprietary, patented process which gives that softer, expanded effect while flossing. This makes it up to 55% more effective in removing plaque. Why don't they use a natural material, such as silk or cotton? They have opted not to use silk due to the heavy processing and the treatment of the silkworms. Plus it cannot be processed in the same way as Smart Floss® and thus would be less effective in removing plaque. At one time in the past, cotton was used as dental floss, but it is not used for floss anymore as it tends to fray or break easily or is harsher on gums and not as effective.

How do you use Smart Floss?

  • Wrap 18" (45cm) of floss around fingers & draw tight.
  • Tug and release. The floss expands!
  • Slide floss between teeth, curve it around tooth and clean between tooth and gum with gentle up and down motion.
  • Repeat using a clean section between each tooth.

What are the ingredients in Smart Floss®?
Smart Floss® is flavored with a natural cardamom flavor and lightly coated with a vegetable/bees wax blend. It contains beeswax plus one or more of candelila, carnauba and rice bran wax.  The wax does not contain genetically modified ingredients, known allergens or phthalates and is gluten-free.

    I agree that this is better than anything I can find in the stores - I've tried them all. It cleans much better. And though it's the type that expands, it doesn't get caught on the anchors for my Invisalign braces - a problem with other types of floss. Highly recommended!

    Just bought this floss for the first time after being a fan of Tom's flat floss for years. This beats the pants off of it...I even did a refloss test after using my old floss and was AMAZED at how much more 'stuff' came off my teeth. I'm taking it to my hygienist on the next visit and will definitely use nothing else from now on. The round flourescent dispensers are just an added bonus!

    This is my favorite floss ever. I have a lot of dental work to navigate and this gets the job done better than any other type of floss, including similar fluffy floss from other brands. It's very soft and you can really "wipe" otherwise unreachable surfaces of teeth with it.

    This is, in fact, the best dental floss I've ever used. It's springy and swells up a bit when wet, so it really swabs out the crevices between teeth. It's not objectionably waxed. A bit pricey, but worth it.

    This works really well! My Mom constantly flosses her teeth, so I really bought this for her but I've used it too. This floss is more like a bunch of tiny strings (fibers?), so it sort of 'expands' to cover more surface. The cardamom flavor isn't very noticeable (that flavor worried me a bit because I didn't really know what to expect) and it's not a bad scent (although other flavors would be nice!!) The thing I like most of this floss is the eco-friendly packaging and the great price. =) I'd definitely buy this again and my Mom seems to like it too.

    I love this floss. It feels like a tooth/gum massage and my teeth always feel awesome after using. It is a "thicker" floss than I've found anywhere, but you can tighten it to thin till its between your teeth to almost brush between your teeth. Nifty!

    This is by far the best floss I've ever used -- gentle and extremely effective -- my dentist and dental hygienist were amazed at how much better my mouth was than any other of their patients', which never happened before, and I think it's due to this product and to Weleda toothpaste. Note however that the Dr Tung's Smart Floss I found at a couple local "natural" stores was so different from what I get from Luckyvitamin that I think only Luckyvitamin has the genuine article.

    Works better when you stretch it first as per instructions, which I didn't see on first use. My only complaint is that it shreds in the tightest spaces. But love the unobtrusive cardamon flavor and excellent ergonomic packaging.

    Prior to using Dr. Tung's Smart Floss, I had to resort to using waxed and/or unwaxed, flat, thin strings of floss that would cut my gums and shred on contact. Smart Floss cleans unbelievably well, getting into tight as well as wide spaces in between my teeth without cutting into my gums. The cardamom scent and taste is fresh and clean, and I love that the container is made of biodegradable plastic.

    I read great reviews and purchased this floss but it did not work for me at all. Maybe my teeth are too close together because it shredded the floss every time. I wanted to like this but it didn't work for me at all.
