A dental hygiene instrument, called a dental ring flosser, is used to remove dental debris from between the teeth of the user. The dental ring flosser has an aperture sized to firmly and snugly fit around the end of a user's finger, so his or her finger may be solely used during flossing, to manipulate the strand of dental floss secured to the dental ring flosser. The strand of dental floss is adjustably supported on two alike opposing elongated spaced prongs formed integrally with the dental ring flosser. By adjusting the tension in the stand of dental floss, the finger ring size is adjusted so the dental ring flosser fits firmly and snugly about the user's finger.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
