Our review compares dental floss and picks on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which dental floss and pick they think is best!
Canstar Blue surveyed 1,023 Australians for their feedback on the dental floss and/or picks they’ve purchased and used in the last six months.
The winning brand is the one that receives the highest overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.
Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

All Smiles came out on top with its Total Care dental floss and Total Care picks and brushes. The Woolworths-owned brand offers a range of dental floss and picks, including brushes and a plastic flosser. All Smiles’ dental floss is mint-flavoured, contains fluoride and comes in a shred-resistant 50-metre roll. Its pick range includes interdental floss brushes that come in packs of 10 and are available in sizes extra small, small, medium and large. All Smiles also has mint-flavoured dental flossers with 100% recycled plastic handles that come in packs of 50.
Dental picks include interdental brushes and plastic flossers. Brushes are excellent for cleaning between braces or bridges and hard-to-reach places between your teeth, and are highly effective at removing plaque. Flossers are a plastic utensil with a curved head and dental floss pre-threaded through the opening. They work in a similar way to traditional floss and get between your teeth to remove food.
Dentists recommend flossing your teeth at least once a day, but this advice will vary based on your specific dental needs and history. For example, people with sensitive gums or braces may be advised to floss less regularly or not at all. Here’s how frequently Aussies floss their teeth, according to a Canstar Blue survey.
