Flossing Made Easy

If dental floss puts your fingers in a painful bind, check out FlossRings from Dix Preventive Products. Simply use the slot to guide the floss into a small hole at the top of each ring, then place the plastic rings on your index fingers to begin flossing. FlossRings are especially helpful for folks with arthritis, multiple sclerosis or dexterity problems. A two-ring pack costs $2. FlossRings are available in most drugstores. Or you can order them from Dix Preventive Products, 145 E. 15th St., New York NY 10003;
