20 Slate Floss Heads
Each package comes with 20 Floss heads.
The design of our patented Gum Sweeps mimics the shape of our teeth and gums in the spaces between teeth. Strategically placed ribs and bristles sweep and remove the plaque and food particles that normally remain undisturbed after brushing alone. It may sound complicated, but it's as easy as sliding the floss head back and forth from tongue to cheek. Simple. Easy. Effective.
Most of the bacteria that cause bad breath live on the surface of the tongue. Brushing the tongue can help remove some of that bacteria, but studies have shown that a tongue scraper can remove 30% more odor-causing bacteria than a toothbrush. The tongue scraper on the Slate Electric Flosser has two rows of rubber bristles that lift and rake the hairs of the tongue in preparation of the final straight blade that squeegees and removes all the nasty gunk. The shape of the tongue scraper mimics the natural curvatures of an extended tongue.
The replaceable floss heads of the Slate Electric Flosser are designed to last. Depending on how tight the user's tooth contacts are and whether their teeth or fillings have sharp edges, our floss heads have proven to last between one to three weeks. For best results, we recommend that the floss head be replaced each week. With twice-daily use compared to single-use floss heads or floss picks, Slate floss heads can keep almost 700 floss picks from hitting the landfill per year.
