It is important for you to floss if you’re interested in maintaining a healthy mouth. Flossing can reach places that your toothbrush can’t get to. But there are many individuals who struggle with flossing for a number of reasons. Fortunately, alternative options such as water floss can help everyone maintain great oral health.

Toothbrushes can’t clean very effectively between your teeth. So if you don’t floss, you can’t prevent plaque buildup between your teeth.This can lead to inflamed gums, and eventually to gum disease. Gum disease can also lead to a number of serious problems, including tooth loss, consistent bad breath, and loss of supporting bone structure.

It is very important to floss, even if you struggle with using standard floss. Fortunately, water floss could be enough to help you avoid any issues. You see, with water floss, you’ll be able to direct a stream of water at the spaces between your teeth. These picks are also useful because they also have a number of attachments—meaning you can pick the most comfortable attachment for you. You may also be able to use a floss pick to meet your needs as well.
