If everyone in the U.S. flosses their teeth according to ADA recommendations, each year our empty plastic containers would fill a landfill the size of a football field that’s 6 stories high. That's just for the empty plastic floss dispensers!
Dental Lace containers are made from glass with a stainless steel cap and are refillable.
Cut down on waste by ordering just new spools of floss when you need it. Online orders ship without the cardboard packaging as well.
The floss is made from 100% natural and biodegradable mulberry silk with Microcrystalline wax.
Two 33 yard rolls of floss are included with each container.
The bags the floss comes in is made from Polylactide Acid, created from the lactic acid in plants. The bags are Certified compostable.
Natural Mint Flavoring
Is the Berry Blue Dental Lace blueberry flavored?
No sorry. We know how much you love Maine’s wild blueberries but our Berry Blue is just the color of the label.
Does the floss shred or break?
Unlike some other silk floss that contains a strand or two of plastic to make it stronger, Dental Lace is 100% silk fibers. There is NO plastic in this floss. Our tests did not prove that it breaks or shreds, however we have had a couple of customers with very tight teeth say it did break while they flossed.
Is the floss certified compostable?
We’re working on getting it certified. Our local commercial composting company is accepting our floss in their compost bins. We have contacted chemists to help us certify it as compostable floss.
What is microcrystaline wax?
Microcrystaline is a food-based wax. It's added to frostings and shines produce in grocery stores. It is a petroleum bi-product though. Soon we will be changing our wax to a vegan Candelilla wax. This wax is plant based however at this time the product is not vegan.
