Okay so my personal friends know that I’m lowkey into my teeth lol. I’m also obsessed with Sunstar’s GUM Easy Flossers – we’re all kinda obsessed with them here at home, they’re super easy to use and actually make you want to floss your teeth.

Sunstar GUM, partners with dental professionals worldwide, offers complete oral care solutions including the most comprehensive interdental range available in South Africa. With Sunstar GUM’s interdental brushes, Soft-Picks, Flosbrush and several types of floss on offer, there’s a suitable interdental tool for literally everyone.

So here’s a break down on what they offer:

  • GUM Original White Floss (RRP R51): Helps remove stains and plaque from between teeth.
  • GUM Expanding Floss (RRP R55): Ideal if you have small gaps between the teeth, sensitive or receding gums. This is easy to insert, even between the tightest contacts, and expands during use, for an exceptional clean.
  • GUM Easy Flossers (RRP R50): Great for adults and children, with an easy to grip handle. (my fave)
  • GUM Soft-Picks Advanced (RRP R89) Disposable dental picks with soft rubber bristles that gently massage and stimulate gums. Ideal for adults and children.
  • GUM Trav-Lers (RRP R101) Tiny interdental brushes, ideal for normal teeth, big gaps and around crowns, bridges, implants or orthodontics.
