DenTek helps flossers 'Scrub Between'
January 18th, 2013
MARYVILLE, Tenn. – DenTek has introduced the Scrub Betweens Dental Pick to help consumers take the fight to gum disease.
The oral care products company said Thursday that the new Scrub Betweens are the only soft-scrubbing dental pick with thousands of microbristles for thorough cleaning.
Scrub Betweens' micro toothbrush-like scrubbing tip is designed to glide gently between teeth — including hard-to-reach back teeth — to make it easier to remove food particles and reduce plaque buildup, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, according to DenTek.
Besides general flossing, the Scrub Betweens dental picks can be used with braces, bridges and any spot that's difficult to reach. The soft tip for flossing also makes Scrub Betweens comfortable for sensitive teeth, and the carrying case makes them easy for flossing on the go, the company added.
"You can carry our new Scrub Betweens wherever you go because they are compact, easy to use and disposable," commented Charlotte Havely, vice president of marketing for DenTek. "Most people who floss, floss not only at home but also on the go after a meal or snack. So there's no need to reach for an old-fashioned toothpick on your way out of a restaurant. Scrub Betweens are an easier, more convenient way to make a commitment to better overall health in 2013."
DenTek oral care products — which include floss picks, interdental brush cleaners, dental guards for nighttime bruxism, disposable dental picks, braces care, breath remedies and dental repair solutions — are sold as such retail pharmacy operators as CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Target and Kroger.
