Is Each Device Custom-made? How Are the Devices Custom Fit for my teeth?
Yes, each device is custom made to specifically fit your dental anatomy. Once your dental impressions are received each device is then digitally designed and crafted by trained Dental Professionals in our lab, and aligned to fit your teeth and mouth structure. One upper device and one lower device per patient is created and designed specifically for the anatomy or your teeth, ensuring a perfect fit!
How Do I Thread the Floss on the Devices?
Most people use the devices 10 - 20 times before replacing the floss, just like using your toothbrush, as long as the floss is not frayed or broken.
Threading the devices is easy, it normally takes less than 30 seconds to thread and can be re-used multiple times. Begin by winding your floss around the tab at the bottom of the device 4 – 5 times, then follow the instructions and thread the floss in the notches (each notch corresponds with its opposing notch) and around the body of the device, finally securing the floss around the opposite tab. Please refer to the instructions included with the devices, or view the "How to Thread the FlossQuick Device" video on the FlossQuick website.
Is Dental Floss Reuseable?
Yes, similar to your toothbrush you can reuse floss if the floss is rinsed off between uses with mouthwash or warm water and allowed to dry. Replace the floss when it frays or breaks.
Dentera's board of Dental professionals (several Dentist & a Prosthodontist) advise that the floss can be re-used if not frayed or torn. Otherwise remove the used floss and replace with new floss of your choice, and the device is ready for continued use.
How Many Times Can I Use My FlossQuick Devices Before Replacing the Floss?
You should be able to use device 10 – 20 times before replacing the floss, depending on floss used and the spacing between your teeth. There are patients that use the devices up to 20 times before re-threading the dental floss.
Dentera's board of Dental professionals (several Dentists & a Prosthodontist) advises that the floss can be re-used if not frayed or torn, similar to the use of your toothbrush. Otherwise remove the used floss and replace with new floss of your choice, and the device is ready for continued use.

How Do I Use My FlossQuick with GumGel Devices?
Your custom designed FlossQuick devices come pre-threaded, but can be used with any brand or type of dental floss. The devices are durable and reusable and will last for years.
Simply place a small amount of GumGel on each strand of floss, and place the upper or lower device in your mouth and gently push the floss into the spaces between your teeth (If extra pressure is needed, gently bite down on the device).
The floss and GumGel will be applied uniformly between each space, and the GumGel will be delivered below the gum line. Move the device up and down and back and forth slowly to complete flossing. Once flossing is completed, remove and rinse the device with warm water or mouthwash and let dry, and it is ready to be used again.
What Are the Devices Made Of?
Medical grade PLA plastic (environmentally friendly, recycled material) the same material used in many medical devices. Each flossing tray is designed and 3D printed specifically to fit your dental structure. Medical grade PLA is durable and very strong, made to last for years.
How Do I Clean the Devices? Can I Soak Them in Mouthwash?
Yes, we recommend that you rinse off or sterilize the devices after each use, either by cleaning with warm, soapy water and rinsing thoroughly, or soaking them in your favorite mouthwash. Treat the cleaning of your devices much like you would the cleaning of your toothbrush.
Is FlossQuick Patented? Is FlossQuick FDA Approved?
Yes, FlossQuick is patented: Patent #10,582,989.
The FlossQuick product is a Class 1 Medical Device under FDA guidelines and does not require FDA approval, much like a toothbrush or dental floss picks. However the FDA does require company and product registration for Class 1 Medical Devices.
Should I Consult my Dentist Before Ordering?
We recommend that you talk with your dentist if you have concerns about your flossing habits and need to increase the frequency of your flossing. The FlossQuick device has been created to facilitate easy, quick flossing.
