100 yards. ADA Accepted: American Dental Association. Healthier gums, Cleaner, fresher breath. Dental tape helps remove decay-causing material from between teeth and under gums. The ADA council on Scientific Affairs' Acceptance of CVS Pharmacy's dental tape is based on its finding that the product is effective for removing plaque between teeth and helping to prevent and reduce gingivitis, when used as directed. Compare to Johnson & Johnson DentoTape (Johnson & Johnson DentoTape is a registered trademark of Personal Products Company).
First, cut off about 18 inches of tape. Wind some around the index finger of each hand until you have about 2 inches to work with. Gently work the tape between the teeth (don't snap it in) and move it back and forth down to the gum line to loosen the plaque. Then let about an inch uncoil from your left hand and take up the slack with your right hand so that you have a fresh piece of tape between your teeth. Gently pull the tape out from between your teeth. Note: Slight gum bleeding when using tape is frequently a sign of unhealthy gums. By using tape daily, bleeding should stop. Consult your dentist if bleeding persists.
