Flossing may be great for your gums, but it can be torture for your fingers. Bring the circulation back to your digits with FlossRings, a nifty little set of plastic circles you thread with floss and then slip over your index fingers. A recent clinical study at Indiana University found that FlossRings removed 23.8% more plaque than hand-held floss, which means a lower risk of gum disease. FlossRings ($2) are available at drugstores nationwide.
