Hi, Dr. Mark Burhenne here of AsktheDentist.com So, quick, short review because that’s all that’s needed for floss. Floss is very straightforward. But there are some important things to know about Boka Floss. So, Boka, I love their toothpaste. They have an interesting sonic toothbrush. It’s a great company, direct-to-consumer and I love their products. A very quality type of company. But let’s talk about their floss. So, petroleum-free. That’s kind of what
I’m looking for now because I don’t want petroleum products in my mouth. I just don’t trust that. It’s got a mint flavor. That’s fine. That’s personal preference. But the important thing about floss is how it handles and how it feels and how it scrubs in between the teeth. So, I’m gonna floss real quickly just to refresh my memory because I test a lot of floss. And then I’ll give you an idea of what I
think of it. So, nice case. Unfortunately, none of that’s biodegradable. The floss I don’t think it’s biodegradable and the case is not biodegradable. It’d be nice if we started thinking about that because people are using a lot of floss all over the world. Anyway. floss… So, yeah. This is very nice in a sense that it grabs. It really has kind of a slightly, I don’t want to use the word course, but a grabbing like feeling where it’s literally scraping the sides of your roots and actually the inside of the gums to get kind of scoured and cleaned.
And so this texture is ideal for that. It could be the beeswax, I’m not sure. But
it’s got a really nice feel to it. And it’s easy to use. It’s not as easy to
use as Glide but Glide is pretty much all chemicals. And we don’t want to go with that. So, I like this floss. It’s got a good feel to it. It doesn’t break very easily. I like that. I mean, that’s hard to break because there’s nothing worse than floss breaking or getting caught. I also do the knot test. I do believe that knotting floss is important in certain mouths. And I get a little food caught on the upper left here and so I run a knot through the contact. And so, the floss has to knot well, and this does. I just pulled that knot through that
contact and it cleans very well. So overall, good feel, doesn’t slip out of
your hands, strong and petroleum-free. That’s really the most important thing about floss. It shouldn’t be something you wouldn’t want to put in your mouth. So anyway, I love Boka Floss. I highly recommend it. And if you want more reviews on floss and toothbrushes, just subscribe to this channel. This is one of the better ones. Thanks for watching.
