No doubt your dentist has recommended that you floss and brush after every meal, but did you know that traditional dental floss may not be enough? That’s why so many dental health professionals endorse the use of an irrigation device for teeth and gums – it can clean between your teeth and below the gumline, going places traditional dental floss simply can’t get to, plus using a water floss machine has been proven to be more effective at reducing bleeding than manual flossing. Water floss machines have also been clinically proven to reduce gingivitis and improve gum health, which are drivers of overall health and well-being.
When shopping for an electric flosser or water flosser, you’ll want to consider how and when you will use it. Most likely it will stay in your bathroom at home, but if you travel or want to stay on top of your oral hygiene while at work or school, a cordless or portable model might be the best option.

Oral Hygiene Unplugged
While electric water flossing devices are ideal for use at home, they can be cumbersome, plus you don’t always have access to a sink and an electrical outlet. That’s no doubt why the category of manual flossers has expanded exponentially – no one wants spinach stuck in their teeth or stale breath. Choose from a wide array of pocket and purse-friendly manual floss options including traditional dental floss, mint flossers, waxed and unwaxed dental floss, floss picks, gum stimulators, whitening dental flossers and more.
