How do I use SimplyFloss?

How does SimplyFloss differ from conventional dental floss?

SimplyFloss is made from 100% medical grade silicone and is reusable. Due to the stretchability of the material, the floss will become more pliable making it easier to fit between tight spaces. SimplyFloss won’t shred and will safely tear apart when it’s ready to be replaced.

How long will SimplyFloss last?

No two teeth are alike. This will depend on how often it's used and how tight one's spaces between the teeth are. Due to the stretchiness of the silicone, SimplyFloss can be a bit of a learning curve. If pulled too tight/ overstretched, SimplyFloss can break prematurely.
