Perio Sticks are made from selected parts of the Nordic birch tree. Only a small amount of the wood from each tree has the qualities suitable for our shaped, flattened Perio Sticks - the wood must be both strong and flexible. The wood is harvested from sustainably managed forests in Scandinavia, and is not treated with dyes or flavoring.
Even our THIN Perio Sticks are far thinner than regular toothpicks or any dental stick available at a drugstore. The shape and thinness allows them to easily penetrate between the teeth and remove plaque and food particles. Plus, they are so comfortable you may find yourself recommending the clean feeling to your friends! Our X-THIN Perio Sticks are the thinnest sticks available anywhere and are especially useful for those with extra-tight spaces between teeth.
The best technique is to moisten the Perio Sticks in the mouth for 40-50 seconds before using. They then become pliable and can bend up to 60 degrees!. Not only does this help prevent them from breaking, but it enables you to clean those hard-to-reach areas at the back of your mouth.
