Harp Orthodontic Flossers

For those who have patients in orthodontic treatment, here’s a nifty little product for you to check out.
 
Named after their unique shape, Harp Orthodontic Flossers make it much easier for patients to floss while wearing ortho brackets.  The little devices are slim, durable, and easier to use than traditional floss threaders.
 
Let’s face it, one of the most difficult things we do in dentistry is to convince our patients to floss daily.  CNN recently did a survey that discovered about 30% of adult patients admit to *never* flossing.  When you see that statistic and then pair it with a teenage patient base AND the difficulty that orthodontics bring to the situation, you can see why anything you can do to improve acceptance will make everyone’s lives easier.
 
Each flosser has nylon thread and can be reused up to one week per Harp.  Per the manufacturer, here are just some of the advantages:
 * One handed
 * Reusable
 * No Threading
 * Quick and Easy
 * Prevents GingivaliHyperplasia
 * Floss without a mirror
 * Braided Nylon Floss     
 * Resistant to breakini
