An electronic water flosser, sometimes called a Waterpik, is an alternative to dental floss. A waterpik works by directing a pressurised jet of water between the teeth and into awkward areas that a toothbrush or string floss cannot access.
Water flossers are not cheap but they do have some distinct advantages over dental floss as they:
- Are more effective in cleaning around dental braces or crowns
- Can clean under the top of the gums
- Can easily clean between tightly spaced teeth
Water flossers are also more effective than floss at removing plaque from tooth surfaces and your dentist can recommend the best type of water flosser for your particular requirements. Read more at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/is-a-waterpik-better-than-dental-floss/
