The Good: Inexpensive, They work, Durable
The Bad: Generates a lot of waste, No real mint flavor
The Basics: Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks are good and easy to use, though they make a lot of garbage and do not have the promised flavor to them!
For the last few years, I have been using various flossing products (outside straight dental floss) because I've found that the easier flossing between my teeth is, the more likely I am to actually do it! Lately, I've been using Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks. The package of 75 Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks continues the positive traits of floss picks so that I am almost okay with how wasteful they are and the fact that the Oral-B Glide floss picks do not live up to the promise of a "Radiant Mint" flavor! Perhaps Oral-B Glide will eventually make a metal dental flosser using a spool of dental floss that only generates the usual floss waste. That might well be a perfect product if it ever materializes. Until then, the disposable Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks are available and they work.
Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks comes in a 75 unit pack and, for me, that represents about three months of oral care. Each Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks is a white, nylon thread that is attached to a solid purple plastic holder that is 2 7/8" long, 1 1/2” wide, and just over 3/16” thick. The floss is solidly held taut between two tines (like a pitchfork). Each Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks has a 3/4" piece of dental floss suspended between the tines.
To dispense Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks, simply open the bag and pull one out. Then reseal the bag.
Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks are and incredibly simple product to use. After the Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks is pulled out of the package, stick it in your mouth with the floss side in and stick it between your teeth. After the Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks is between a pair of teeth, gently move it back and forth, loosening up any matter that has gotten trapped between your teeth and gums. Repeat with each tooth. Anything that the floss portion cannot get may be poked out with the toothpick on the back side of the Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks. The back of the Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks is essentially a soft, curved toothpick.
The first few times one uses Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks, or any dental floss, the results will be pretty gross; that’s normal. The matter that comes out of your mouth the first time you floss is tartar, plaque and – most importantly – food and other materials that is literally rotting in your mouth. As it rots, it wears away at the enamel on your teeth and destroys your gums, forcing an immune response.
The Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks are durable and absolutely work. None one of them have snapped on me. Unfortunately the Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks do taste at all of mint, which means they do not affect the breath (other than by removing stuff caught between one's teeth that already smells bad) and do not execute one of the promised aspects of these Floss Picks.
That said, Oral-B Glide 3D White Floss Picks are durable, efficient, and cool, despite the fact that they are wasteful and not actually mint-infused.
