This is the best floss ever made, and a brief explanation will make it clear why: Imagine you're wiping your kitchen counter off. Would you get better results wiping it off with a cloth or with a sheet of waxed paper? Even if the woven floss gets "soggy", (as one reviewer noted) so what? What will do better cleaning a surface, a wet cloth or a dry piece of wax? This stuff cleans your teeth and gums cleaner than anything else on the market.

Why wouldn't I, with my hyper-sensitive gums, go for **Johnson & Johnson REACH Mint Woven Floss with Fluoride**?  I curse those slips of regular floss that cut into my gums.  Naturally, a gentler, woven -- I'd actually say the blue and white strands are twisted -- floss looks like a real find.  The mint tastes great, and the fluoride's an unexpected plus.

In fact, though, **Johnson & Johnson REACH **collects saliva as use continues.  Finally, in my experience, this **Woven Floss, **becomes too slippery to handle.  I, of the dry mouth, am near the drooling stage; my hands are unpleasantly wet; and the once-gentle floss has become too slick to actually maneuver between my teeth.

The result?  Now-out-of-control **REACH Floss** cuts right into the gum and, for the first time in months, blood appears when I rinse my mouth.

I figure that in order to make **Johnson & Johnson Mint Woven REACH** work for me, I'd have to use at least three 18-inch pieces of floss per session.  At 50 yards per pack and a yard-an-a-half per flossing my **REACH **will be gone before I know it.

*Tuneful's* **REACH** now lives in the kitchen junk drawer.  I expect to call on it for some crafty necessity that requires skinny string.

And...?  I'm back to the floss that has worked so well for me in the past year.  [www.viewpoints.com/Walgreen-Co-Mint-Waxed-Dental-Floss-review-04bd2][1]   This one's the generic for another **REACH** (non-woven) floss.  Budgeteers, take a look!  You'll wonder why I ever wandered.  (And so do I!)

A Lot Safer Than Using Toothpicks!

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Johnson & Johnson Reach Gum Care with Fluoride Mint Woven Floss:

I have a couple of small gaps between my back teeth and food always gets trapped between them. I year or so ago I was trying to get a piece of steak out from one of the gaps and accidentally jabbed my gum with a toothpick. Not only did it hurt and bleed but I was worried that I would get some kind of an infection from it. I had the dentist look at it and he said that it was small but I had to rinse after I ate anything until it healed up. That's when I switched to using noting but dental floss to get food out from between my teeth.

The Reach Gum Care Mint Floss has 50 yards of floss per package. It has a nice mint taste to it when you are flossing with it and even though there is a minimal amount of wax on it to allow it to slide between teeth without fraying, that never gets left behind on your teeth. I have never had this slide into my gums when I have been trying to get food out from between my teeth and it does a much better job than a toothpick and it is a lot safer.

The only problem that I have with it is getting rid of the used pieces. If I throw it in the trash in the bathroom the ferrets pick up on the mint scent and knock over the trash can trying to get to it. The dogs used to do the same thing until one of them ended up with it stuck between his teeth. I have no idea how long it was stuck there but when I came home he was sitting outside the bathroom door with a piece of it hanging out of his mouth. That was the last time any of the dogs went in the trash in the bathroom.

A container of this lasts me a couple of months; I don't use it when I brush my teeth (even though my dentist recommended it) but when I am getting low on it I always buy another one to have on hand when I need it. I prefer this to other dental floss products that I have tried. The taste is pleasant and I have never had any problems with it fraying or getting stuck between my teeth.

Reach Gum Care is thicker and works better!

By 

from USA

Comments about Johnson & Johnson Reach Gum Care with Fluoride Mint Woven Floss:

Reach Gum Care was recommended to me by my dental hygienist several years ago. She felt that since it is thicker, it does a better job of cleaning between teeth. I also feel like it does a better job of cleaning between my teeth than the regular thin floss. It does a better job of getting food particles out. I like knowing it has fluoride, so I am protected between my teeth. It has a minty flavor that I like, and I also like the scent. One negative to this floss, and the reason I can't give it a ten, is that it sometimes shreds between my teeth and leaves small pieces of thread. It can also be hard to get off the dispenser because it can shred, and the woven strands sometimes separate. It is also more expensive than regular floss. I feel that the higher price is worth it because I'm getting floss that does a better job of cleaning between my teeth. The flouride it leaves behind on my teeth also makes it worth paying more for.

Johnson & Johnson Reach Gum Care Floss is at the top

By 

from USA

Comments about Johnson & Johnson Reach Gum Care with Fluoride Mint Woven Floss:

I have tried many different types of floss and the Johnson and Johnson Reach Gum Care is by far the best. It is easy to use and is not slippery like other forms of floss. It tastes great and does a great job on your teeth and gums. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this brand of floss.

A good, durable floss.

By 

from Lansing, MI

Comments about Johnson & Johnson Reach Gum Care with Fluoride Mint Woven Floss:

Ok, let me first start by saying that I am very picky with regard to what I use on my teeth.  I only use a specific brand of toothpaste, specific type of tooth brush and a certain type of dental floss.  With regard to the dental floss, this is the only brand/type I use.  The woven type of floss seems to be the only floss I an trust to actually get between the teeth and make my teeth feel clean, while simultaneously cleaning the particles between and removing the food build up.  I use this floss both in the morning and at night, so I can feel confident that I am doing the best I can to keep my teeth healthy.  The only draw back or minus to this is floss is that sometimes, the floss tends to shred when I am flossing my teeth with it.  I then have to use more of the floss and it is some what expensive compared to other brands.  With that being said, I will still continue to use this floss on my teeth.

Reach Gum Care dental floss tastes good, feels kinda funny.

By 

from Kenosha, WI

Comments about Johnson & Johnson Reach Gum Care with Fluoride Mint Woven Floss:

Reach Gum Care dental woven floss is a pretty pricey floss, but it is quite different from the wax strings we have all become accustomed to. It has a pleasant taste and it does its job well, it also does not get stuck in between tight or overlapping teeth as other dental flosses have done on my teeth. 

The only problem I have with this woven floss is that it feels like a pulled apart cotton ball going in-between my teeth. If you don't like that cotton ball "squeak" or feel, you may have an aversion to this floss. It gave me the heebie-jeebies to use at first, but I have grown accustomed to it and the feel of it does not bother me any more. 

I would definitely recommend this product with the fair warning that it does have that cotton ball feel to it and that it does cost a lot more than conventional floss. I'm not sure if there are any documented evidence that this floss warrants its price but if you can hook it up with a coupon and a sale, give it a try!

best floss

By 

from Fremont, CA

Comments about Johnson & Johnson Reach Gum Care with Fluoride Mint Woven Floss:

I think the **Johnson & Johnson Reach Gum Care with Fluoride Mint Woven Floss** is my favorite floss. I started using it because my dad got a small sized sample pack from his dentist. Basically, the woven floss is much thicker and softer than regular waxed/unwaxed floss, which tends to cut your gums in you are not careful. The woven floss, however, is composed of two thick strands of floss (seriously, they are so soft and cushiony on the gums) that are woven together to make this really soft strand of floss that is very gentle on the gums. The mint flavor is a nice touch, and the fluoride is also a great added benefit. I have not been able to locate this type of floss in a store yet, but I will definitely be on the lookout. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a floss that is softer and gentler on the gums (especially if you have issues such as gingivitis or bleeding of the gums when you floss).

BEST FLOSS EVER. Trust me - I'm from a dental family!

By 

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about Johnson & Johnson Reach Gum Care with Fluoride Mint Woven Floss:

This is THE only floss I ever use.  My grand father was a dentist, my mother is a hygienist so I have tried EVERY type of floss out there.  Every single one.  Picks, waxed, un waxed, tape, round, all of it SUCKS except this Crest gentle gum care.  What's not to like?  It is puffy and fluffy so it doesn't cut or irritate your gums (i have very sensitive gums and I floss every day at least once).  It is minty and delicious, you can get small rolls - from a dental distributor or the big rolls in the stores.  It is fluffy and woven but it is strong and will not snap or stretch.  It removes plaque from way up under the gum line and it doesn't hurt!  Even if you have not flossed in a long time, if you start flossing with THIS FLOSS every day - it will become as easy as brushing because it does not hurt!  The tapes and waxed flosses are horrible and will continue to hurt your gums no matter how often you floss!  I know!  I have suffered with gross tape floss until Crest invented this woven miracle!  I give my friends all samples so they will be hooked, too!!  Floss your teeth and stop having stink breath!

Woven floss is the best!

By 

from Maple Shade, NJ

Comments about Johnson & Johnson Reach Gum Care with Fluoride Mint Woven Floss:

This is the best floss ever, and it is the only kind I will use. I panicked when I couldn't find it in the store. As it turns out, they just changed the packaging, and there is now only one flavor/style of woven floss. Look for the PINK package for sensitive gums, and you will see that in tiny writing on the bottom it says "woven" floss. They used to have green mint and blue fluoride floss, but now there is only the pink package with the blue fluoride floss inside. This type of floss cleans teeth better and causes less pain/bleeding for those who have sensitive gums like me. I can feel the difference when I use this floss.
