Health Tip: Should You Use a Water Flosser?


By Diana Kohnle, HealthDay Reporter

(HealthDay News) — Dentists have long preached the virtues of daily flossing for healthier teeth and gums. And if dental floss doesn't leave you smiling, a water flossing machine may just do the trick.

The American Dental Association says a water flosser may be a better choice than dental floss if you:

  • Wear braces.
  • Have fixed or permanent bridges, or other dental work that makes flossing more challenging.
  • Have a hard time using dental floss.
