Oral B Flossette Dental Flossers Flossing is an essential part of oral hygiene. Clinical studies show that flossing helps fight gum disease by removing the plaque build-up that toothbrushing can miss - BETWEEN teeth and UNDER the gumline. Oral B Flossette dental flossers are specifically designed to make flossing easy and effective for those finding it difficult to maintain a regular flossing habit. Oral B Flossette dental flossers feature a special fray-resistant floss, designed for smooth and easy use between teeth. Gums may bleed slightly when you first begin to floss. This usually means only that you need to floss more regularly. However, it could be an early sign of gum disease, so see your dentist if bleeding persists.
