Why Is GumChucks Better Than Flossing Picks?
Proper flossing requires making a “C-Shape” by wrapping the floss around your tooth to get beneath the gum line and disrupt bacteria and plaque. Unlike one-piece Floss Picks that hold the floss in a tight, straight position, GumChucks’ two-handle device gives you better leverage, lets you control the tension of the floss, and allows you to effectively clean the sides of each tooth. These handles make it easier for everyone to floss, especially those with limited dexterity, with the added bonus of never having to stick your fingers in your mouth!
Why Is GumChucks a Faster Solution for Flossing?
UCLA Dentistry performed a comparison study of GumChucks vs. traditional string floss. This test proved that flossing speed was significantly faster and flossing efficacy was improved overall, and it demonstrated greater improvements in gingival health over a 4-week recall period.

Can the Flossing Tips Be Re-used?
Our disposable tips are designed for one-time use. However, in a pinch, they can be used twice as long if the floss isn’t frayed and you rinse it with warm water after use.
