Made by the company that invented SuperFloss! Thornton 3-in-1 Floss has a stiff plastic end, followed by a soft but abrasive filament, and a length of regular floss.
Use the built-in plastic threader to get under braces and bridgework, use the filament to help dislodge food and massage gums, and use the floss for regular flossing. Recommended for teeth with gaps or large spaces. Please note that if your teeth have tight spaces, this floss may be too thick. In that case, we recommend SturdyFloss or Glide Threader Floss instead.
Each package contains 100 strands. Please note that the strands are not individually wrapped.
Each box contains 100 strands of 3-in-1 Floss. The strands are not individually wrapped; they are loose in the box.
Great for periodontal cleaning, braces, or bridgwork.
Each strand of floss has a plastic threader tip, a length of floss, and a thick spongy element.
Recommended for people with large gaps between their teeth. Not recommended for people with tight contacts between teeth.
This video demonstrates how to use Thornton Periodontal Floss, which is a very similar product to Thornton 3-in-1 Floss:
Thornton 3-in-1 Floss is great for people who have large spaces between their teeth. This floss is very thick, with a thick spongy element in the middle. It will do a fantastic job of dislodging plaque and bacteria between the teeth. It has a thin plastic threader tip for getting under brackets and around bridgework.
I do NOT recommend this product for anyone whose main problem is tight spaces between their teeth -- it will be too thick to get between the tight contacts. If your teeth are very tight, instead I would recommend SturdyFloss or Oral-B Glide Threader Floss. Or use the FlossFish tool with any floss of your choice.
You may not have heard of Thornton Floss, but it has been around for years. In fact, Thornton first invented SuperFloss!
