DenTek, Beauty, and Why YOU Should Be Flossing!

Let's face it, no one enjoys talking about dental health.  Well, except maybe for dentists and dental hygienists.  But I have a confession to make: I am obsessive about my teeth.  I floss after I eat every meal and I brush three times a day.  My dentist warned me against brushing too much, as that can be detrimental to your teeth.  But for those of you who don't floss as often as I do, or those of you who may dread it because it can be painful, DenTek has come to rescue!

Mickey and Donald agree: a healthy smile is as important to your overall beauty as any hair or makeup can be.  Flossing is an easy way to ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy.  If you don't floss regularly,  you could leave yourself susceptible to gingivitis, which is a gum disease that causes painful inflammation.

DenTek was founded in 1984 by John Jansheski, who took his dentist father's invention, the Dental Pik, and turned it mass-market.  They provide innovative oral care products that keep your smile beautiful and in prime condition.

I think that the DenTek Comfort Clean Floss Picks make flossing less of a chore.  Although it doesn't take much effort to open up a container of floss and pull some out, I find that flossing with a string of floss can be difficult.  It's not always easy to reach the backs of your teeth, and if you use too much force you might cut your gums.  No fun.  The Comfort Clean picks are made with a silky tape of floss that is incredibly soft.  I actually just flossed with them before sitting down to write this post!

The floss glides smoothly and easily between my teeth, even when I'm flossing the tight spaces between my back molars.  If you already have sensitive gums and shy away from flossing because of the pain it can cause, these are a great way to get the job done without irritating your mouth any more.  They're easy to maneuver around my teeth and get all of the yucky stuff out from between them.

The Comfort Clean Floss Picks also have a mint coating, so not only do they clean out the food stuck between your teeth, they leave them feeling minty fresh, too!  The pointy pick end can also be used to dislodge stubborn food particles in between the teeth. And last, but not least, they can be used as a tongue cleaner if you hold them flat against your tongue (illustrated on this page).  Scraping your tongue is just as important as flossing and it goes a long way towards killing bad breath.

DenTek has a wide range of oral care products beyond these picks, including products for kids! The Comfort Clean Floss Picks sell for $1.39 to $4.29 and are available in 30, 60, 75, 90, and 150 count packs at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and many other grocery and drug stores. Be sure to check out their website to view all of their offerings.

Bottom Line: Dental health might not be sexy or exciting to talk about, but everyone can agree that having a healthy mouth is important.  DenTek's flossers make flossing painless and easy, so you have no excuse not to do it now!


  1. Flossing is DAMN sexy! OK, maybe not. I do find little floss picks like these easier to use than traditional floss... if only they came in tons of fun flavors.

    1. That's an awesome idea and I'm surprised no one has capitalized on it yet! Maybe you should start your own floss business. I really would enjoy using mango flavored ones, or something else totally oddball!
