I was never a fan of flossing - all that manipulating the floss and, frankly, yucky handling of used product as you worked your way through your teeth...However, after a minor dental emergency, I turned to these flossers so that I could floss easily, anywhere. I LOVE this product. One of the biggest hassles I had with flossing was dealing with my tightly-spaced bottom teeth - all other flosses (even the smooth ribbon kind) would shred when I tried to work between those teeth. Plackers Twin-Line is stronger because of its dual floss lines and guess what? No shredding, ever. Plus, the "pick" end (which folds away if you don't want or need to use it - clever!) offers gum stimulation and extra cleaning assistance...and the mint flavour makes your mouth feel even better than if you've just brushed. Can't say enough about this product - personally, I will never be without it again (and the dentist's office has really noticed the difference in my oral health too!).
