Dental Floss Abrasion Testing Apparatus

Information: Dental floss abrasion testing apparatus has been designed to evaluate the abrasion strength of dental flosses before and after a laboratory simulated dental flossing method. This test apparatus can be used to conduct a comparative test studies of strength and efficacy of all dental flossing materials by controlling all accurately designed test features in any laboratory simulated test methods.
