water flossing and traditional flossing

All You Need to Know About Water Flossing and Traditional Flossing

When it comes to flossing, there are two methods you can use. It’s best to pick the one you are more likely to stick with:

– Traditional dental floss is cheap and easy to use and can easily be kept on your person.

– Water flossing requires a more expensive initial outlay, and uses batteries, but is more effective and quicker than dental floss at removing debris from between your teeth.

– If you’re not confident with your flossing, your dentist will be happy to demonstrate.

“By flossing just once a day, you can prevent serious problems with your smile later on.”
