Pros: Does not shred, doesn't get stuck in dental dental work. Works wonderfully when used correctly.
Cons: Only 38.2 yards are contained in the dispenser.
Dental floss helps remove plaque (bacteria), debris, and food particles but this may be a difficult task to accomplish if you have special dental needs. Using particular type of floss may be more suited to your needs and circumstances. In the past I've tried several brands and variations of dental floss and discovered that a few of the Glide brand flosses work well for me. I recently decided to try Oral B Glide Pro Health Clinical Protection Floss 35m/38.2 yd because it was on sale for a reduced price and had an associated bonus offer at a particular store. Turns out I got a wonderful deal because this floss works exceptionally well for me!
I wasn't always faithful with flossing. As a teenager I rarely flossed and acquired a substantial amount of amalgam fillings which prove it! As a young adult I occasionally flossed, semi-regularly on a newly crowned molar and when it felt like food was stuck between my teeth. I'm now close to middle age and I FLOSS REGULARLY! If Oral B Glide Pro Health Clinical Protection Floss had been available many years ago I believe I would've been more likely to have flossed on a regular basis.
After my first time using Oral B Glide Pro Health Clinical Protection Floss I was truly amazed. Really... it was that much of a WOW experience for me. The floss moved effortlessly between my teeth and along the gum area. I have many old large amalgam fillings on my molars that have sharp areas because pieces of the filling have broken off. This makes flossing difficult even with the original Glide floss. Sometimes the floss would shred or get stuck and require extra effort at removing it. When using Oral B Glide Pro Health Clinical Protection Floss I've never experienced shredding or tearing of the floss. NEVER! The claim "slides up to 50% more easily in tight spaces" versus the leading floss is definitely true in my situation.
In addition to the many old amalgam fillings I also have small areas of composite dental bonding between a few of my front teeth. I'm extra gentle in this area because I don't want to damage the bonding. Oral B Glide Pro Health Clinical Protection Floss works wonderfully in this area. I experience no resistance when I initially glide the floss to my gum line and the floss doesn't get caught in a particular area which was sometimes a problem when I used other brands of floss.
Oral B Glide Pro Health Clinical Protection Floss is a flat and smooth non-waxy feeling floss which is easy to handle. It's a little bit slippery so if you intend to do your flossing with your hands you'll need to wrap a sufficient amount of floss around your fingers. The Oral B Glide Pro Health Clinical Protection Floss that I got has a "fresh mint" flavor. It has a pleasant mint scent and the taste is not overpowering.
The Oral B Glide Pro Health Clinical Protection Floss 35m/38.2 yd comes in an entirely blue plastic case. Aside from color the size and shape of the container appears identical to other varieties of Glide dental floss. However, this particular variety of Glide contains a lesser amount of product within the case. The currently available original basic Glide dental floss is supplied with 54.7 yd in the plastic container while the Oral B Glide Pro Health Clinical Protection Floss is supplied in a container with only 38.2 yards. So if your primary concern is more product for the price you won't want to purchase this product.
I'm in the process of having thousands of dollars of dental work done. At least four of the amalgam filled molars need crowns and possible root canals. Since I can't afford to have all the work done at the same time and probably wouldn't want to even if it was possible, I need to meticulously clean and care for my teeth and gums. Oral B Glide Pro Health Clinical Protection Floss 35m/38.2 yd is an excellent product and valued addition to my dental hygiene care. Priced at around $3.50 in most drugstores it's definitely worth the cost!

** Just an FYI that was brought to my attention on my last dental visit - If you consistently get floss stuck in particular areas and/or experience shredding, snagging, or breakage of the floss you need to visit your dentist as soon as possible. These kinds of situations almost always occur when there's a problem with the tooth - loose dental bonding, loose veneer, chipped or cracked filling are just a handful of problems. If very small frays of the floss get stuck in these areas it's a magnate for bacteria. The bad breath that it causes will become the least of your concern.
