Flossaid Dental Floss Holder


Makes flossing less dreadful

At first, I almost never flossed, mainly because I have a smaller mouth and had trouble trying to floss with my fat fingers, especially way back in my mouth on the molars. I also have a gag reflex which I almost always triggered. Sometime in the early ’70s I found my first Flossaid and thought it worth a try as I knew flossing was supposed to be important yet I wasn’t doing it. Now, 40+ years later, I still floss daily because Flossaid makes the process relatively easy.

Unlike those single-use, disposable, flossing picks, Flossaid will last months before one of the arms breaks off. I also get to use the floss of my choice. (Glide at this time.) I’ve tried several of the competitors yet I keep coming back to Flossaid as the easiest to use and not too expensive. Flossaid will break over time so I always have a couple of spares available. Over the years I’ve stopped seeing Flossaids in stores but Amazon keeps listing them so I first search there when it’s time to renew my supply.
