To help patients and improve overall oral health, Sunstar GUM® has developed EasyThread™ Floss, designed to improve flossing habits and compliance. EasyThread Floss is packaged within a traditional floss dispenser that effectively isolates each strand to eliminate tangles and waste, while the lidded plastic case keeps floss clean until it is ready to use. To further reduce waste, a rewind feature was added to ensure that only the proper amount of floss is dispensed. Sample envelopes containing five individual strands are also available for patient in-home trial.
Designed with comfort in mind, each strand of puffy EasyThread Floss features durable threader sections on both ends that are the ideal stiffness – less likely to irritate gums, yet stiff enough to access hard-to-reach areas. By adding threader sections to both ends of the floss it essentially doubles the useful life of each strand.
Additionally, the number of patients requesting restorations, such as crowns, bridges and implants, is expected to grow. Consumers should want to protect the investment they are making in these restorations through the use of specialized, easy-to-use products that have been recommended by dental professionals.
