You may need to seek the help of a medical professional, depending on your situation. This video is for informational purposes only. Learn how to get a ring off of your finger in less than 5 minutes using dental floss. I have done this on my grandmas swollen finger and today I demonstrate on my own hand to show you how easy it really is. My grandma was going to pay to have the ring cut off and we were able to remove the ring from her finger with dental floss in a matter of minutes for FREE. She had tried everything and was so excited when we finally got the ring off her hand!
