Can I use a water flosser?

Waterpiks or water flossers are fantastic tools for removing large food particles and debris from underneath bridges, around braces, or other hard-to-reach areas. We encourage our patients to use Waterpik if they find them beneficial. However, you should never replace regular flossing with a Waterpik, as they do not remove biofilm from the teeth surfaces. Therefore, if you purchase a Waterpik, be sure to combine it with regular flossing.
