Floss Your Teeth In Seconds With This Crazy New Mouth Guard Flosser

If you’re not a fan of flossing, but understand its importance after daily meals, the Blizzident might be your new best friend, as it is a mouth guard that flosses all your teeth at the same time, and does it in seconds.

One of the most tedious and hardest things to consistently keep up with in your daily routine is flossing. Your dentist will always tell you that daily flossing will make your life easier, and if you’re like me, you nod your head, say “got it,” eat a tub of popcorn and never touch a thread of floss.

The Blizzident seems to take the tedious part away, as it is tailored to your teeth so you can just stick it in your mouth, make a chewing motion for a couple of seconds, rinse it off and get on with your day.

The flossing process sounds easy enough, but there is a bit of work involved before you actually buy the device. In order for it to perfectly fit in your mouth and between your teeth, you have to get a 3D scan of your teeth first. It is not a service that Blizzident provides, and you’d have to find a dentist that offers a 3D scan service, then send it to Blizzident.

They do have a list of dentists who take 3D impressions, but it’s not a very long one.

One more thing that may, or may not be a deal breaker, is the price point. At $199, plus shipping, regular old floss is definitely cheaper. The floss rolls on the Blizzident last for 500 uses before needing to be replaced, though.

This isn’t the first Blizzident device, however, as they introduced their toothbrush version years ago, which also required a 3D model of your teeth, and thereafter brushed them in seconds.

If this could make my dentist visits a little less painful, I might just go for it. While the price isn’t super friendly, at least it isn’t absurd. Will this be the thing that finally gets us flossing? Maybe.

This Brand Of Beef Jerky Comes With Floss In The Bag

Men and women worldwide have been struggling with beef jerky for centuries. Not when it comes to flavor or production or anything trivial like that. The issue we have is getting it stuck in our teeth. Every time I eat beef jerky, I end up looking like the Scarecrow from Batman.

One manufacturer of beef jerky intends to change all of that.

True Gentleman’s Jerky was founded by a couple of buddies from San Diego in 2013. They claim that they are just simple men with simple jerky, but they underestimate the gravity of their creation. These guys have changed the world by doing one simple thing: including floss with every bag of jerky.

Sure, it’s probably not that big of a deal for most people, but for many like myself, this is huge. I love beef jerky, and more often than not, I find myself in a situation where my mouth is adorned with jerky. Tiny threads of beef keep trying to squeeze in between my teeth like a fat guy going back to his seat in a crowded movie theater.

Granted, the entire concept of “floss in a bag of jerky” has been around for a few years now, and True Gentleman’s Jerky isn’t the only company to do it. Someone even mentioned it on Reddit nearly three years ago. Yet, for reasons unbeknownst to me, a large majority of people still never knew that this combination existed. Hell, I work at Foodbeast and not a single one of my coworkers had seen it before. Screen Shot 2016-08-01 at 5.37.25 PM

Too many times have I been forced to shove the corners of playing cards or gnawed straws into my mouth to try to remove the jerky. Hopefully other brands pick up on this trend and start following suit. It’s always in a company’s best interest to address the greatest issue the public has with their product. Even Heinz is getting in on the action by letting consumers know (FINALLY) how to get the ketchup to come out of the glass bottle.

Let’s just hope that the heavy hitters of beef jerky like Jack Link’s and Krave can hop on board this well-hidden trend.
