A Floss in Ten Seconds

A floss so quick, you’ll never skip flossing again

We use water jets aimed at the front and back of your teeth. The jets clean 360 degrees around each tooth multiple times. With Instafloss, you get better results in 10 seconds than in two minutes with string flossing.

A Perfect Floss Every time

more effective

Water cleans deeper in your gums than string floss. Compared to string flossing, water flossing is:

  • 151% as effective at reducing gingivitis
  • 129% as effective at removing plaque
  • 200% as effective at reducing bleeding 

(according to Barnes CM, et al., Goyal CR, et al., and Resma NAM et al.)

aims for you

Water flossing is over 50% more effective when the water jets are aimed at a 90 degree angle to your gums (Eakle WS et al.). Instafloss aims for you so no matter what, all the jets are at the optimal angle for the maximum clean.

A 360 Degree Floss

String only cleans the gums between your teeth, leaving the gums in front and behind your teeth untouched. Instafloss’s jets clean 360 degrees around each tooth. Never leave a single spot unflossed.

Our Mission

Instafloss is the result of doctors, engineers, and scientists uniting together for a common purpose: to end the oral health crisis. Currently, over 70% of people never floss, which results in unnecessary illness and suffering. 

With Instafloss people are only 10 seconds away from better health and beauty.

How does Instafloss work?

Instafloss uses multiple water jets to give an effective and comfortable floss in only ten seconds.

A small tank holds water which is pumped to the mouthpiece (at your desired pressure). The mouthpiece aims pulsing water jets at 90° to the gumline (the most effective cleaning angle [Eakle WS, et al.]) on both sides, front and back, of your top and bottom teeth.

As you sweep the handle from one side of your mouth to the other, the jets automatically floss 360° around every tooth. Sweep only once and you’re done!

Is Instafloss effective?

Our number one goal for creating the Instafloss was to create the most effective flosser. Period.

Instafloss uses pulsing water jets to floss 360° around every tooth, compared to string which only cleans the gums between teeth, not the gums all the way around each tooth. Water jets can also clean deeper in the gums than string for a more effective floss. In comparison to string, water flossing is:

151% as effective at reducing gingivitis (Barnes CM, et al.)
129% as effective at removing plaque (Goyal CR, et al.)
200% as effective at reducing bleeding (Resma NAM et al.)

Additionally, water flossing is over 50% more effective when the water jets are aimed at a 90° angle to your gums (Eakle WS, et al.), and Instafloss aims the jets for you so they are always 90° to your gumline, which is hard to do with other water flossers. In internal tests, we’ve found Instafloss to be 50% more effective than single stream water alternatives, which we attribute to the instafloss’ self aiming jets.

Will Instafloss hurt? Is the pressure adjustable?

Instafloss’ pulsing water jets feel much more comfortable than traditional string floss. It feels like a thorough gum massage. The water pressure is adjustable. Start at the lowest setting and slowly increase the pressure to your comfort level. As your gum health improves, you will be able to comfortably handle higher pressures.

How is Instafloss different from string floss?

Instafloss uses multiple water jets to give an effective and comfortable floss in only ten seconds. Water is more effective than string (see Q: “Is Instafloss effective?”) and feels better. Additionally, since water can get in tiny places, Instafloss can be used even in cases of crooked teeth, braces, etc.

How is Instafloss different from water flossers?

All other water flossers have only 1 jet that you must manually use, which means they take longer than string floss and they are difficult to aim correctly (90° to the gumline, including the backs of your teeth!) without making a mess.

In contrast, Instafloss uses multiple jets to give a perfect water floss in only ten seconds. The jets are always aimed 90° to the gumline, floss 360° around every tooth, and they never miss a single spot. Since the flossing is automatic and you do not need to aim, the water can go into your sink instead of all over your mirror (as is typical with 1-jet water flossers).

Can I use Instafloss if I have crooked teeth, braces, a bridge, etc?

Yes! The Instafloss mouthpiece fits 98% of mouths, including variances and modifications. One of the advantages of water flossing is that water can get in tiny places that string cannot. For sensitive gums, start on the lowest pressure.

Can children use Instafloss?

With a child-size mouthpiece and under adult supervision, yes. Start on the lowest pressure and be certain that your child understands the instructions.

How big is Instafloss?

Instafloss is a 5” diameter x 10” tall cylinder, small enough to fit smartly on your bathroom counter. The adult mouthpiece is sized to fit comfortably in 98% of adult mouths.

Can I change the mouthpiece for multiple users?

Yes, the mouthpieces are interchangeable, so multiple people can use the same device. Instafloss even has a hidden compartment to hygienically store an extra mouthpiece.

How important is flossing for my health?

According to many dentists, flossing is even more important than brushing. Maintaining a good-looking smile and fresh breath are great, but these are beautiful because they indicate good health.

Not flossing can cause inflammation and gum disease. People with gum disease are two- to three-times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke. Pregnant women with gum disease are more likely to have preterm labor. Alzheimer’s, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, weight gain, and erectile dysfunction are all linked to gum health, most likely because of inflammation.

We made Instafloss with the mission to improve gum health in the most comfortable, convenient way.

How much time will I save by using Instafloss?

Instafloss will save you about 2 minutes every time you floss. If you floss after every meal (as you should), over the course of a healthy adult-teeth life that’s 3,000 hours, which is 1.5 years’ worth of work days. When was the last time you had a paid vacation that long?
