Oral-B Glide Comfort Plus Floss vs. equate Extra Comfort Dental Floss

Both flosses were more comfortable than your regular floss, but the equate version still left our gums bleeding, while the Oral-B Glide was silky smooth.  With a 63% similarity rating, we think you should purchase the name brand here.

The Glide floss is silky smooth, and won't make flossing such a chore!

Brandefy compares off brands (e.g., Equate) to name brands (e.g., Oral-B) to share when the generic is as good as the name brand, and to warn when it is not. Our purpose is to help you save time and money, and to have fun while doing it.

Sorry, dentists, we admit we don't always love flossing our teeth.  Yes, yes we know it is crucial to our oral health, but it is tedious and makes our gums bleed.  In our opinion, Oral-B's Glide floss made it a little easier to keep up on flossing.

When we opened up these two flosses, we were excited that the packaging and color were similar.  The Glide floss was slightly mintier smelling, but not too different.  However, when we felt the exterior of the floss, it was obvious the Glide version was much thicker and smoother than the equate floss.  When we ran them between various molars, the equate floss left a little blood, while the Glide version left zero.

We recommend you make your dentist and yourself happy, and stick to the Glide version on this one.
