The other one is a wound type of dental floss in a holder. The dental floss is wound on a roller, when using, a length of dental floss is pulled out and be cut. In this type, the length of the dental floss will be pulled longer and easily to get tangled. Furthermore, it is common to be a waste because a user easily pulls out a length dental floss longer or shorter than required. Moreover, because the dental floss is cut by cutters or mini saw cutter, it may get hurt when using. The holder for the wound dental floss is made of plastics, it is also not environment friendly. In addition, it is suggested to floss teeth and gum three times a day, the conventional dental floss in wound type is not very convenient to carry.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Referring to FIGS. 1 to 4, it shows a dental floss package 100 of a preferred embodiment in accordance with the present invention, which comprises a dental floss 10 and a packing bag 20.

The dental floss 10 is in a suitable length with a usage sectionl 1 and two ends 12, 13 thereof. The usage section 11 is wound in a predetermined way to decrease the volume and facilitate the unwinding of the floss.

The packing bag 20 is made of paper. However, the material of the packing bag is not limited to paper and can be other bio-degradable plastic materials. The interior of the packing bag 20 comprises a receiving area 21 configured by two side-walls 23. The tearing mark 22 is marked on one side-wall 23 of the packing bag 20. The usage section 11 of the dental floss 10 is received in the receiving area 21 and the two ends 12, 13 are fixed in the binding region 29 on the side-walls 23 of the packing bag 20. In another one embodiment, the tearing mark 22 can be a punch tearing mark.

A dental floss package 100, the main parts and the assembly thereof in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention, has been illustrated in above description. The advantages and effects in use of the dental floss package are illustrated hereinafter.

First, as shown in FIG. 4, the dental floss 10 is packaged in the packing bag 20. When unfolding the packing bag 20, the usage section 11 of the dental floss 10 is placed at the upper half portion 241 on the inner side 24 of the packing bag 20, the two ends 12, 13 is fixed apart in a predetermined spacing at top portion of the upper half portion 241 of the inner side 24. Then, the lower portion 242 of the inner side 24 of the packing bag 20 is folded upwardly along the center line 2 and bound to the upper half portion 241 of the inner side 24. Furthermore, the top area 26, left side area 27 and the right side area 28 are hot pressed to form the binding region 29. Thus, the dental floss package in accordance with the present invention is completed. In another one embodiment, the binding region 29 can be adhered by adhesives.

When using the dental floss package in accordance with the present invention, a user can open the packing bag 20 by tearing the tearing mark 22 to easily take out the dental floss 10. The user can take the two ends 12, 13 of the dental floss 10 to floss the teeth.

Because the length of the dental floss in accordance with the present invention is suitable for single use, there is no waste as the length of the dental floss is too long or too short. In addition, the packing bag is made of paper which is environment friendly. Furthermore, the dental floss length of the present invention is for single use, it is convenient to carry. A user can open the packing bag by tearing the tearing mark to easily take out the dental floss 10 and will not get hurt.

Now, referring to FIG. 5, as described in the previous description, the two ends 12, 13 of the dental floss 10 are fixed at the top area 26 of the side-walls 23 of the packing bag 20. However, the two ends 12, 13 can be fixed at the left side area 27 and right side area 28 of the side-walls 23 of the packing bag 20 to achieve the same effect. Furthermore, in FIG. 6, the two ends 12, 13 can be independently fixed at the top area 26 and the left side area 27 of the side-walls 23 of the packing bag 20, or as shown in FIG. 7, the two ends 12, 13 can be independently fixed at the top area 26 and the right side area 28 of the side-walls 23 of the packing bag 20 to achieve the same effect.

Referring to FIG. 8, the top area 26, the left side area 27, right side area 28 and the bottom portion 281 of the packing bag 20 can be bound by hot pressing to form the binding area 29 in order for the two ends 12, 13 of the dental floss 10 to be fixed at any two places of the binding area 29 of the two side-walls.

In addition, in another one embodiment, the dental floss packages can be assembled in series, such by two packing bags 20 as shown in FIGS. 9 and 10. The right side area 28 of a packing bag 20 is connected to the left side area 27 of another packing bag (as shown in FIG. 9). When using, a user pulls the two packing bags 20 in opposite directions (as shown in FIG. 10) to separate the two packages and then take one to use to reach the purpose of the present invention.
