The others don't work like Tom's
on June 6, 2013
I've always had problems finding a good dental floss. No, seriously. The dentists send you home with Glide or Butler and for years, Butler was the go-to brand I'd use. Until it suddenly seemed to not be found in any grocery or pharmacy near me. Reach was ok, but it then seems to shred due to my dental work. That's when they start pointing you towards the dental tapes which to me, do not clean at all but just go through the motions of flossing. I spied Tom's one day and had never given it a try, so I thought why not? Nothing was more frustrating than tossing out rolls of floss I'd try which were too thin and didn't remove anything from between my teeth or had shredded there - what was I going to lose? I'm so happy I gave it a shot, it turned out to be the perfect balance for me. It doesn't shred, and the texture and all of the floss actually scrubs your teeth clean where the tape and other waxed brands just slide without that squeak. It is a bummer that it is harder to find locally, but thanks to Amazon, local is now delivered to my porch! It may be a bit more expensive than store brand floss or even the bigger names like Glide or Reach but? If it takes twice the other product that doesn't do half the job? Tom's for me is the better bargain all around.
