Dr. Tung's Smart Floss Cardamom Dental Floss
Last month I did something I don't do very often, which is go to the dentist, and after bulldozing and bludgeoning my teeth and gums they gave me the obligatory "goodie bag" of a toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss, except this time the dental floss was Dr. Tung's cardamom-flavored dental floss, and it changed my dental flossing life.
If a floss could ever be described as delightful, Dr. Tung's Smart Floss is absolutely delightful. Unlike the intense shots of mint and cinnamon big-brand flosses poke into your gums, the warm-spice cardamom flavor of Dr. Tung's is noticeable but subtle. Possibly because it's also all-natural. It leaves my mouth feeling fresh, clean, and even a little exotic.
The floss' texture is threadlike, many strands woven together, which Dr. Tung's says allows it to stretch and expand to dig out chunks of meat, leafy greens, and squatting bacteria from all the little cavities and crevices between your teeth "by a clinically proven 55%" better than other dental flosses. It has a bit of a waxy coating, and is designed not to tear during use. I can vouch for the latter claim. My Dr. Tung's has never broken while I'm using it, and plenty of other flosses have, and having to floss floss out of my teeth is one of my biggest pet peeves.
The only part of Dr. Tung's Smart Floss I'm not so sure about is the "smart" part. It's not embedded with sensors or any self-flossing capabilities, so this just seems to be Dr. Tung throwing around a popular buzzword. And if s/he wants to do that, I'd go with "tactical" over "smart".
