A few years ago, I gave up on dental flossers. The floss with which these are equipped snaps before I've finished digging, and their slick surface usually slips between my greasy fingers. Since then, I've resorted to the reliable (albeit inconvenient) finger-wrapping tradition of my father, my father's father, and my father's father's father.
No more! Plackers are the best dental product that I've used. The packaging of these flossers tout its TUFFLOSS as the "world's strongest floss;" having flossed my teeth twice consecutively with one of these without even a hint of stretching, shredding or breakage, I can affirm the likelihood of that claim. Neither overbearing nor faint of taste, their mint flavor is refreshing, never nauseating. Each handle is stamped wide with small ridges, so that a firm grip between thumb and index finger (or pinky?) is sure to keep it in hand. On the flosser's opposite end, its blunt pick is useful for dislodging particularly obtrusive plaque, and it's guarded by a fold-away tab that prevents accidental palm stabbings.
As long as Plackers are manufactured, regular floss will seem a boring regression. They're great for home use and essential when traveling. Dig in!
