20 Slate Floss Heads

20 Slate Floss Heads

Each package comes with 20 Floss heads. 

Gum Sweeps

The design of our patented Gum Sweeps mimics the shape of our teeth and gums in the spaces between teeth. Strategically placed ribs and bristles sweep and remove the plaque and food particles that normally remain undisturbed after brushing alone. It may sound complicated, but it's as easy as sliding the floss head back and forth from tongue to cheek. Simple. Easy. Effective.

Tongue Scraper

Most of the bacteria that cause bad breath live on the surface of the tongue. Brushing the tongue can help remove some of that bacteria, but studies have shown that a tongue scraper can remove 30% more odor-causing bacteria than a toothbrush. The tongue scraper on the Slate Electric Flosser has two rows of rubber bristles that lift and rake the hairs of the tongue in preparation of the final straight blade that squeegees and removes all the nasty gunk. The shape of the tongue scraper mimics the natural curvatures of an extended tongue. 

Reuse-able Heads

The replaceable floss heads of the Slate Electric Flosser are designed to last. Depending on how tight the user's tooth contacts are and whether their teeth or fillings have sharp edges, our floss heads have proven to last between one to three weeks. For best results, we recommend that the floss head be replaced each week. With twice-daily use compared to single-use floss heads or floss picks, Slate floss heads can keep almost 700 floss picks from hitting the landfill per year.

I like the concept, don't last very long.

I received my Slate and the floss heads that came with it initially seemed to last about four days. I purchased two refill packs and have found that the floss breaks on the second day of use. I would like to see a stronger floss so that they last longer. At almost $1.00 each I don't know that I will be purchasing more in the future.

Works as advertised.

So far my first floss head has lasted three days, nonsigns of not lasting at least a week. The gum scrapers are the real win here though, despite having just brushed I got a lot of plaque and gunk out of my teeth, despite being somewhat obsessive about tooth are. I'm here to buy more heads, even though Im counting on ny first bag of 20 will last well into the new year - my wife was so impressed with it she wants her own set.

Like The Flosser, Don't Like the Expense

Seems like all reviews are saying the same thing. The floss is TOO expensive. $1 per floss head, when the first one only lasted 2 days is out of my range. I read that once you get the hang of it, they last longer but I think it also depends on the teeth. Everyone is not the same. I also worry about the reuse of the floss. Is rinsing enough?

Great Customer Service

I really was worried about the floss type on these since I have issues with most kinds. It works well for me lasting almost a week though. I do wish they were a little cheaper; however, I my teeth get cleaner faster with less hassle. I had an issue with one of the batches of heads that I got but Slate fixed it so quickly. Between that and the fact that it encourages me to floss more regularly makes it completely worth the expense. Not to mention if it prevents even one cavity it covers the cost for over a year!

Great and bad

Works great and easy to use but I only get one use from each head. Floss always breaks so I can't get even two uses. Followed directions exactly so works great but expensive.

Thank you for your feedback, we will continue to use that to improve our product. We would love feedback a month from now to see if your floss lasts longer once you use the flosser for a longer time.
