Dental Floss


There appears to be teflon coating on dental floss. Do you know if that is a health hazard? If so, are there any that are not coated with teflon?

Well, I don't have any definitive studies on the health effects of Teflon on dental floss, but I would use one without.

Readers, any recommendations on this? Personally I don't use dental floss, but very skinny pointed toothpicks that seem to work better for me (my dental hygenist is happy with the results).

I love POH floss and toothbrushes. The floss does not have the usual wax coating, so it is less bulky. I have never heard of Teflon coating, but presume POH does not have it. They sell it at our local coop, but I buy large quantities direct.
