In short, the Element was designed to work with almost any kind of floss. This includes flat, monofilament, string, and multifilament floss.
In fact, we tested over 10 different types of floss so far.
Generally speaking though, we strongly recommend that you use a high quality monofilament or tape floss with the Element. Monofilament floss doesn’t unravel or split apart, unlike multifilament floss that unravels like strands of yarn or splits into multiple strings under stress. Tape floss is very flat, like a sheet of paper, and rarely splits apart either if it’s made out of high quality material.
We’re currently examining the materials we’ll be using. The material needs to balance aspects related to durability, safety, hygiene, and sustainability along with real-world constraints like material availability and costs. In the end, we’re aiming for the Element to be composed of 100% recycled and/or 100% recyclable materials. Once a decision is made, we’ll post more info on this page!
The American Dental Association recommends using 18 inches of floss when flossing with your fingers. The Element only needs about 10 inches of floss. This is 45% less floss than you’d have to use when flossing with your fingers. That’s good for your wallet and the planet.
Not here. We’ve built an eco-friendly flosser that’s durable and therefore sustainable. All else equal, the Element’s long term use will be far better for the planet than disposable flossers that require the extraction of endless resources and the creation of endless waste.
You’ll have to try really hard to break this dental floss holder!
Right to Repair
In the unlikely event you lose a single part, you should never be forced to buy the entire product all over again. That’s just bad for you and for the planet. The Element’s parts can be produced individually for maximum longevity and minimal waste. As well, some parts can be replaced with cheap store-bought parts or spare ones lying around at home.
