How many of you love to floss your teeth? I know I don`t! In fact, it`s one of my least favorite things. I`d rather sit back and get a filling than floss. Why such a harsh comparison? Well, my gums tend to be real sensitive so the floss irritates them. Yea, really frustrating. Anyway I was introduced to something new called Stim-U-Dent
. While I still don`t find them enjoyable, it`s a bit better than regular floss as far as ease of use goes. Of course, you may like them much better and one of you will get a chance to find out for yourself if you like them!
Stim-U-Dent Plaque Removers
are pliable, wooden cleaning tools with a patented triangular shape designed to fit between teeth and gently stimulate gums to fight gingivitis. Theyâ€™re the most tested little pieces of wood in dental
history and have been shown to work better than floss in reducing plaque, gingivitis and bleeding gums. Stim-U-Dent has beaten flossâ€™ results in comparative clinical tests over the last 50 years; when used as directed, clinical studies support a 52% improvement in gum health. They have the American Dental
Association Seal of Acceptance and best of all; theyâ€™re easier and more convenient than flossingâ€¦your family will easily fall into the SUD habit. They can do it while driving, cooking, waiting for the bus, after or in-between meals! Stop stressing about flossing and start SUDing. Available in Original size or Thin (38% thinner) and made from biodegradable basswood from managed forests, Stim-U-Dent absorbs moisture and becomes flexible so not to harm your teeth or cause them to shift. They also have a pleasing mint flavor.
So what do I think of these? Eh, they`re ok. As I stated above I HATE flossing and anything to do with it. Yes, I still do it since it kind of is life requirement, but I don`t enjoy it. So keep this in mind when it comes to my opinion on these. Also remember I do have sensitive gums.Â With that being said, I do agree that these are more convenient than floss, especially if you`re on the go and/or have a super busy schedule. The thing I do not care for is how the wood fits between my teeth. They don`t actually fit all the way through my teeth and I requested the ultra thin sticks rather than the original. So that sort of made my gums feel a bit more irritated. So you cannot use these as you would your typical floss and go between your teeth; at least I couldn`t. One thing I did find they are helpful for though is a quick cleaning such as after meals to get any excess food from your teeth. So basically, great to carry in your purse for after lunch at work, not so great for a real good cleaning.
Again, I want to stress how these did not work for me probably because of my sensitivity and how my teeth are. This is not a terrible product though, just not my cup of tea for my situation. In fact, I encourage you to request a free sample from The Natural Dentist on facebook
to try it before you buy it. Hurry though, that freebie is only valid until July 1st! Also I feel obligated to mention that my customer service I received was fantastic! They were great to work with and very friendly. Not to mention quick to respond to my emails! So although I wasn`t too fond of the product, I was very happy with the company and have to say I would recommend them.
