GOOD NEWS FOR YOU AND THE PLANET - WE HAVE FULLY SWITCHED TO PLASTIC-FREE SMART FLOSS PACKAGING.
There’s no other floss quite like SMART FLOSS. The #1 selling floss in the natural industry*
All our floss is free of PTFE and PFAS (polyfluoroalkyl substances).
'NATURAL' AMERICA'S FAVORITE FLOSS*
The #1 selling floss in the natural industry*, Smart Floss is now in plastic-free packaging. Same floss. Happier planet.
There's no other floss quite like Smart Floss! It is clinically proven to remove up to 55% MORE plaque than regular flosses. It stretches and expands into interdental spaces to clean better. This high-performance floss is suitable for everyone - people with tight spaces, wider spaces...even braces.
This revolutionary floss is also gentler on gums because it is cushion-soft and can stretch. Unlike those other flosses with no spring that can often hurt gums...and fingers!
Smart Floss dental floss is clinically proven to be more effective than regular floss. It has been shown to remove up to 55% more plaque than some of the most popular flosses, i.e. regular waxed and unwaxed flosses and PTFE monofilament floss (compare to Glide).
Even electric or manual flossers which claim to be as effective as regular floss are no match for Smart Floss. Smart Floss can clean around the teeth and reach deeper into the interdental spaces, leaving teeth cleaner and you smiling longer!
Now there's no excuse to use a less effective floss.

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?
Smart Floss® is one of the most eco-friendly, effective dental flosses available.
Container: Smart Floss® is now in plastic-free FSC certified paperboard packaging which can be easily recycled.
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.
Smart Floss® is flavored with natural cardamom essential oil 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.
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– nor are they intentionally treated with PFOAS, PFAS, PFOS, APFO and/or fluorine surfactants. Multiple research tests show that the amount of organic fluorine in our floss (said to reflect PFAS) is below the detectible range. PTFE material, although used widely for floss because it slides up and down easily between teeth, is also the worst performing floss as far as plaque removal goes.
