Water Flossers: The Alternative To String Floss

Flossing is just as important as brushing when it comes to keeping your teeth healthy and plaque free. Did you know that there are alternatives to regular floss?

Key takeaways:

  • Water flossers can effectively remove plaque.
  • They are easier to use for people with limited mobility.
  • They can also make flossing easy if you have crowded teeth, wear braces or orthodontic devices, or have a crown.

Ask your dentist about the benefits of these devices – they may be a good alternative to other flossing methods.
