I have been doing dental product reviews for a few years so I tested the efficacy of Glide Floss on my own teeth. As you can see from the before and after pictures in this section, or from my video, Glide floss is not effective in removing plaque. In fact it did a very poor job removing plaque much like nylon floss
. While Teflon floss may feel nicer to use it comes at a big cost, which is the health of your teeth. In fact, of all the flosses that I have tested out up to this point I have not had so much plaque left behind. Though there is a study that they are about similar in plaque reduction. I have tested water flossers and most other interdental products, and they clean better than the Glide floss. I think water flossers are inefficient as well but the reason water flossers can promote being better than floss because they are tested against inefficient flosses. There are better flosses like Cocofloss and my favorite floss linked to below. Therefore, Glide floss is not better than other flosses and is far worse in my opinion.
