All About Flaus
We're so glad you asked!
Flaus makes flossing as easy as brushing your teeth! No more sticking your fingers in your mouth or not being able to get to those hard to reach places!
The sonic vibrations in Flaus move the floss side-to-side and help to get the floss in and out of tight spaces much faster and easier than traditional floss. Not to mention the left-to-right motion of the head mimics the proper flossing technique!
Not only is Flaus easier than traditional floss, but there are some studies that show electric flossers are superior to traditional floss.
In past clinical trials The American Academy of Periodontology found that an electric flosser "in combination with a manual toothbrush, removed plaque significantly better than the toothbrush alone. Among floss types, there was evidence of superiority for the [electric] flosser."
Studies also found that an electric flosser "removed significantly more interproximal plaque in molar, premolar and anterior teeth compared to manual floss."
The Journal of Clinical Dentistry found that electric flossing "was safe and effective in reducing approximal plaque and gingival inflammation, and provides a useful alternative device for interdental cleaning."

Just like your electric toothbrush helps you clean your teeth easier than a traditional toothbrush, the sonic vibrations in Flaus make flossing easier!
Flaus has 18,000 sonic vibrations per minute that not only help stimulate and massage your gums as you floss, but the vibrations also make getting the floss in between those tight contact points in your teeth easier (you know the ones where all the plaque and food hang out)!
Our Flaus Heads use the highest performing glide floss in the market — a PolyTetraFluoroEthylene monofilament tape floss. This floss does not shred, and is the absolute thinnest-possible floss available so that it has the best chance of working for everyone (tight teeth and all).
Having said that, we know that all mouths are different, and all Flausers have different needs. It’s impossible to pick one floss that will be right for everyone — some people want thick scrubby floss, others want thin tape floss. Not to worry — we’re working on something new to solve this conundrum 🤫.
If you have a favorite floss type you'd like to see in our Flaus heads, send us a note to [email protected]. We'd love to hear from you!
Just like you brush your teeth with the same toothbrush head, it's perfectly safe and hygienic to use the same piece of floss for a flossing session (or two)! If you get any gunk on the floss, just run it under water (or dip it in mouthwash if you want an extra clean)!
Dentists and Flaus share the same vision - a world where gum disease doesn't effect half of US adults over 30 and where people keep their teeth for life!
When we launched our Indiegogo page, we had over 400 dental professionals interested in our dental ambassador program!
Here is a quote from a very satisfied dentist:
“Flossing is critical to maintaining good oral hygiene. Flaus makes flossing easy, cleans great and is gentle on gums. Being a Dentist, I am picky about what I personally use and recommend for my patients - and I love Flaus!"
- Dr. Vivian Roknian, DMD

Technically, it's $99 for Flaus, not floss😉 Investing in your oral health is... well... an investment!
Think of Flaus like an electric tooth brush - you pay a little more upfront for a superior cleaning experience and smaller dental bills down the road!
Plus, if you're using one Flaus head a day, our refill heads come out to $5/month - pretty similar to what you'd pay at the drug store for traditional floss (only with our subscription, you never have to remember to stop by the store on your way home)!
Did you know that every piece of dental floss ever used still exists in the world today? And that most of it ends up in the landfill, or, even worse, the sea.
Flaus reduces the amount of floss used in a traditional flossing session by 95% and our heads are made with recyclable plastic and use 30% less plastic than floss picks.
Every municipal recycling program is different, so we suggest gathering your Flaus Heads after use and emailing us at [email protected]. We'll send you a pre-paid shipping label to send in your oral care products to a dedicated oral care recycling facility.
We're big fans of a healthy mouth and a healthy planet 🌎
Did you know that a water flosser isn't a substitution for traditional floss? It's a great additional tool to you oral care game, but it doesn't remove or dislodge plaque with the same effectiveness as string floss. We're big fans of water flossers though and think anyone who is water flossing and Flausing has an A++ oral game 😏
Tight Teeth: Absolutely! The sonic vibrations help you move the floss in-between tight teeth with ease. We also use the thinnest floss possible - a monofilament tape floss!
Veneers: Definitely! Flaus should work well for anyone who has veneers
Braces: We're almost there! We do have some customers who have successfully used Flaus with their braces and permanent retainers, however, we do not have a special Flaus Head made for braces. We are developing one shortly though - email [email protected] to be added to the waitlist!
Don't forget to use the bite pad! Use your opposing teeth to apply pressure to the bite pad (located on the back of the device) - this helps you control the pressure as you move the Flaus Head in between your teeth!
Let the 18,000 sonic vibrations do the work for you when you're getting in-between those tight spaces! Flossing usually requires a bit of force, but Flaus has a more gentle take - be patient and don't force it!
Do the tight spots last! Everyone's mouth is different, it's totally normal to have tight spots that might break the floss. As you continue to Flaus, you'll learn more about your mouth and learn what works for you!
*Pro-Tip: prolong the life of your Flaus Head and leave those tight spots to last!
Flausing has the same effect as flossing, but it is a bit different and there can be a learning curve! We know that everyone's mouth is different and some teeth will need more TLC than others! We typically see customers become Flausing All Stars after about three weeks of use! So, stick with it! Your future dental bills will thank you!

Applying the Flaus Head:
Align the skinny part of the Flaus Head with the open ridge on the back of the neck. With your index finger and thumb, push the Flaus Head on to the mount. You will feel it click into pace.
Removing the Flaus Head:
Nest the curved neck of the flosser into the inner crease of your fingers, with your thumb placed flat across the bite pad. With both arms of the floss head against a flat surface,
gently apply downwards pressure through the thumb, and rotate your thumb inwards. The floss head will pop off one side at a time.
For a video tutorial, please visit our How to Flaus page!
We have intentionally left some slack in our floss to allow you to create a C + Y shape when you floss!
Curve the floss around your tooth so that it wraps from front to back. This allows you to safely slide the floss down the sides of the tooth, cleaning more surface of the tooth.
We do! Please visit our How to Flaus page for a video materials.
