Are Water Flossers an alternative to Normal Floss?

Should water picks be used instead of flossing?

Water picks are one of the newest ways on the market to fight off plaque. But we wonder, even with the water pick, do we still have to floss daily? READ BELOW TO FIND OUT.

A water pick is a great tool for improving oral health while you are in treatment from your orthodontist or dentist. Studies have shown that water flossers Do Not perform well enough on their own to keep your mouth and gums clean and bacteria free. Water picks are not capable of removing plaque from your teeth as effectively as regular dental floss can. Though water flossers may rinse the sticky bacteria, flossing with dental floss is proven more effective because the floss scrapes the bacteria off of your teeth.

So please, don't ditch the floss completely. Remember, you should floss at least once a day!
