Flix removes plaque, applies flouride
Think of Flix as a miniature interdental brush and tooth pick that specializes in cleaning and massaging the vulnerabler space between the tooth, gum and interdental area. Insert the brush gently between the teeth with the flat surface pointed towards the gum. The siliva activated floss expands to fill out the entire interdental space. This will ensure that only a few gentle strokes clean off remaining plaque in the smallest cavities and irregularities. You cannot find a simpler, more efficent technique for cleaning between your teeth.
Flix consists of floss woven into a fine mesh that is moulded into an easy-to-hold plastic stem made to fit between your teeth. For daily protection, the floss contains fluoride (NaF), gradually dissolving in contact with saliva during the approximatly two minutes it takes to clean all interdental spaces. The fluoride is applied between your teeth to strengthen the enamel as it cleans.
The majority of implant devices lead to problems with cleaning. Bacteria can easily hide in the spaces between your teeth where toothbrush bristles rarely reach. Plaque removal is essential for the success of any reconstructive dentistry.
Cleaning around braces has always been a problem. FLIX is one of the most effective methods for cleaning around orthodontic appliances where plaque can build up. Fluoride release helps to prevent the formation of decay in these hard to reach places. Note that a dentist needs to be consulted regarding children's use of FLIX.
Areas highly susceptible to decay or gum disease need the additional treatment of protective gels or agents.
The disposable FLIX works well as an interdental applicator of chlorine dioxide (a cleansing agent), fluoride (protection against decay), chlorhexidine (antimicrobial gum therapy) and breath freshing gels. FLIX enables you to apply topical gels or agents effectively on appropriate surfaces only.

This was recommended by my periodontist to keep gums healthy. With continued use your gum will no longer bleed when flossing.
AND removes food particles.

I use this product to clean my teeth better because regular floss doesn't seem to work at well. And since I have sensitive teeth and tender gums this helps ensure cleaner teeth between dentist visits.
