Happy holidays to you and your family!
Invented and Tested by a Veteran Dentist
Dr. Michelle Borg, the inventor of the floss boss, operated a successful private dental practice for more than 20 years.
Dr. Borg has spent the last 12 years innovatively tackling the problem flossing.
“Throughout my 20 year career, I observed the unnecessary damage patients suffer from failing to floss regularly even when informed of the larger serious health risks involved. I grew especially concerned for those with additional barriers to complete oral hygiene. For patients undergoing orthodontic therapy (braces) patients with physical disabilities or even complete reliance on an external caretaker, not flossing was much more than just a poor oral habit”
-Michelle Borg, D.D.S
Working with a team of engineers and product designers, Michelle developed the Floss Boss. The first genuine innovation in flossing since it was invented.
Without proper flossing, your daily dental routine leaves 35% of the surface of your teeth unclean and vulnerable.
Everyone knows they should floss. It’s one of our favorite adult habits to ignore until the day we see the dentist.
What dental professionals know is why we should floss each day: Without flossing your are leaving 35% or more of the surface of your teeth open to tooth decay. Flossing also disrupts the BIOFILM of bacteria that is present between the teeth where a tooth brush can not access and water irrigators, or water flossers as they are normally referred to, are unable to reach. According to the NIH, 80% of chronic infections are associated with biofilm formation. Simply put, biofilm can grow quickly as they are living communities and organisms that stick together and attach to surfaces. The only way to disrupt this sticky biofilm BETWEEN teeth is through MECHANICAL manipulation as in flossing. That is why flossing is essential in that regard, and along with brushing, are still the standard of care and highly recommended by the ADA. Inflammation and disease in the mouth and gums has been demonstrated to have a large impact on the immune system.
So the solution is to just start flossing, right? Unfortunately, no. Besides being unpleasant and unsanitary, the traditional floss method (fingers wrapped with floss) is difficult to actually perform correctly. Furthermore, it is almost impossible to do so for patients with dental corrective devices such as braces or head gear.
Flossing has needed an upgrade for a long time, and after 10 years of testing Floss Boss is confident in our solution.
