Flossing Made Easy

Are you tired of cutting off circulation in two fingers to floss your teeth or struggling to keep the floss wrapped around your fingers? If so, you’re not alone. Dentists agree daily flossing is one of the best things you can do for your teeth, but many people don’t because floss isn’t user friendly. Sean Dix knows that firsthand. A skin condition called eczema (see page 5) made flossing difficult, so he created a product called FlossRings that could revolutionize the way people floss for years to come. The rings are easy to use: You attach floss to the rings, put the rings on your fingers and start flossing. FlossRings cost less than $3, come with illustrated instructions and could be just what you need to develop a flossing habit.
FlossRings, created by Sean Dix. Available at CVS stores nationwide.
