One of the things we tend to do when we’re bored or nervous is grab any little object within our reach and take it to our mouth. Sometimes you won’t even notice you’re doing it, but you’ll start nibbling away at your pen cap. It’s a habit that, in the end, can only be harmful for your teeth.
Now, a small company called Star Floss AS is starting a small dental revolution, not by changing this habit, but by changing the object we chew on. They have created Crossfloss, a hands-free dental floss that keeps you occupied while you chew on it, but cleans between your teeth like dental floss as you do so.
