£4.99£6.50

GumChucks empowers you to control the tension and position of floss to clean the surfaces a toothbrush can’t reach.

Description

GumChucks – the easier way to floss. Finally – just about anyone can floss effectively! Handles allow reach right to the teeth at the back of the mouth whilst getting a tight ‘C’ shape around the tooth to clean surfaces toothbrush bristles can’t reach.

As GumChucks are streamlines and updates the range to handles and tips for all uses we offer some of the older ‘style’ packaging at a reduced price. All handles will work with all tips.

 

GumChucks Adult starter pack– handles with 10 tips in bag.

Floss – 22-mm piece of lightly waxed, high quality dental floss made with 250 strands of twisted fibre with high shred tolerance to keep it gliding smoothly between teeth.

The two handle system allows you to control floss tension and easily make the recommended “C” shape, wrapping the floss around the gum line and ‘scraping’ the plaque biofilm off the tooth surfaces your toothbrush can’t reach. Quickly and effectively clean between teeth. Tips can be replaced when frayed by pressing on the button on the end of the handle.

 

GumChucks Kids starter pack – yellow handles with 12 tips in bag. A great way to get kids to start cleaning between teeth.

Great to get children cleaning between teeth and establishing a life long habit for good oral health and fresh breath.

When to start flossing? When teeth have erupted and are in contact with one another. The contact areas between baby teeth are at high risk of decay. Meet the mouth mob and battle evil cavities.

 

GumChucks Travel starter – yellow handles with 10 tips in hard case.

One set of Gumchucks handles with 10 tips in travel box.

 

GumChucks Orthogami starter in hard case. Handles with 10 ortho tips.

The flexible hook on one end of the disposable flossing tips allows you to safely and very quickly position the floss under the arch wire and between brackets for effective flossing. No more threading, struggling or time-consuming contortions!

The unique two-handle system increases dexterity and control allowing you to make the dentist recommended “C” shape with the floss, making it easier and faster to floss effectively.

Strong floss with a high shred tolerance, lightly waxed to slide smoothly between teeth.  ORHTHOgami makes flossing easy and more effective while wearing fixed orthodontic braces.  

Removing plaque biofilm when wearing braces takes time. Always use a good fluoride toothpaste and brush last thing at night and at least one other time every day. Spit out after brushing but don’t rinse away the fluoride toothpaste afterwards. Your teeth may be at increased risk of tooth decay during orthodontic treatment so extra care is required. Using an alcohol free fluoride toothpaste is often recommended. Use this at a different time of day to brushing to ensure a healthy environment in your mouth throughout the day.

The new design will feature handles and  universal tips which will look like the ortho tips for universal use. These will be phased in soon. 

Learn about cleaning between teeth (the surfaces a toothbrush can’t reach) and choosing the best thing for your mouth here. 

Great for adults, children and also for carers helping to maintain others’ oral health.

WHEN TO START FLOSSING? As soon two teeth touch each other a toothbrush can’t reach the surface in contact between teeth. The surfaces between baby molar teeth are most at risk of tooth decay so flossing these is a  great habit to get into. Initially by a grown up but we have 6 and 7 year olds who can manage well with GumChucks and supervision. As the first permanent teeth arrive in the mouth around 6 years it is important to clean the ‘between’ surfaces to prevent decay developing and get children into good oral hygiene routines.

The two handle system allows you to control floss tension and easily make the recommended “C” shape, wrapping the floss around the gum line and ‘scraping’ the plaque biofilm off the tooth surfaces your toothbrush can’t reach. Quickly and effectively clean between teeth. Tips can be replaced when frayed by pressing on the button on the end of the handle.

GumChucks the easier way to floss handles mean you don’t have to wrap floss around finger tips, cutting off circulation. Easy push buttons release flossing tips.

Floss – 22-mm piece of lightly waxed, high quality dental floss made with 250 strands of twisted fibre with high shred tolerance to keep it gliding smoothly between teeth.

HOW TO USE – Use a sawing action to guide Gumchucks floss between teeth. Once between the teeth under the point where the teeth are in contact tighten the floss around the tooth surface and scrape up and down to remove the plaque biofilm off the side of the tooth (it will go a little way under the gum). Guide the floss up and over the triangular bit of gum between the teeth (no need to remove completely from between teeth) then wrap round the opposite tooth surface and repeat up and down motion to clean the side of that tooth. Gently remove using a sawing action and move between the next two teeth.

Clean between teeth BEFORE brushing. That way the fluoride and other active ingredients in your toothpaste reach the in between surfaces for maximum benefit. Spit out after brushing but don’t rinse all the paste away unless advised by your dental team. Let the ingredients work for longer. Use a mouth rinse? Use it at a different time of day to brushing unless otherwise advised.
