FAQs: Smart Floss®
Does Smart Floss remove more plaque?

Smart Floss® expands during use to create a larger surface area to disrupt plaque. It is therefore no surprise that research shows that Smart Floss removes up to 55% more plaque than leading floss types.  The few minutes you spend flossing can be more productive when using Smart Floss. Why use anything less effective?

Is Smart Floss eco-friendly?

Smart Floss® is one of the most eco-friendly, effective dental flosses available.

Container: Smart Floss® is the first dental floss with a container made with EcoPure biodegradable additive. This ensures faster breakdown if it ends up in a landfill or any active microbial environment. In addition, you can easily recycle the container (it is made of recyclable PP).

Wax: To ensure comfortable flossing and to keep the fibers performing effectively, we use a small amount of a vegetable and bees wax blend. To this we add our acclaimed cardamom oil aroma. We do not use petrochemical waxes or artificial flavors.

Floss material: Like many flosses, Smart Floss® is made of polyester fibers. Unlike other flosses, Smart Floss® is made in a proprietary, patented process which gives that softer, expanded effect while flossing. This makes it up to 55% more effective in removing plaque. Why don't we use a natural material, such as silk or cotton? We have opted not to use silk due to the heavy processing and the treatment of the silkworms. Plus it cannot be processed in the same way as Smart Floss® and thus would be less effective in removing plaque. At one time in the past, cotton was used as dental floss, but it is not used for floss anymore as it tends to fray or break easily or is harsher on gums and not as effective.

How do you use Smart Floss?

• Wrap 18" (45cm) of floss around fingers & draw tight.
• Tug and release. The floss expands!
• Slide floss between teeth, curve it around tooth and clean between tooth and gum with gentle up and down motion.
• Repeat using a clean section between each tooth.

What are the ingredients in Smart Floss®?

Smart Floss® is flavored with a natural cardamom flavor and lightly coated with a vegetable/bees wax blend. It contains beeswax plus one or more of candelila, carnauba, castor oil and rice bran wax.  It does not contain genetically modified ingredients, known allergens, phthalates, soy or silica, and is dairy-free, gluten-free and fluoride-free.

Does your floss contain potentially toxic PTFE or PFAS chemicals?

No, neither DrTung's Smart Floss nor our Activated Charcoal Floss are made from PTFE, the floss material implicated by USA Today as being potentially toxic. Instead, Smart Floss is made from polyester fiber and patented for better cleaning. PTFE material, although used widely for floss because it slides up and down easily between teeth, is in fact also the worst performing floss as far as plaque removal goes. (See our study comparing Smart Floss to Glide and other flosses).
