Standard flossing involves a string of dental floss to remove plaque and food debris from between your teeth, whereas water flossing uses a powerful jet of water:

– Dental floss is cheap and easy to use but can damage your gums if used over-zealously.

– Water flossing is more effective than dental floss, however, it is more expensive and cumbersome to take with you if you’re travelling.

– Keep your dentist happy by flossing daily, whichever method you prefer.

“Flossing is essential so whatever type of floss will make you more likely to floss is the type of floss for you.”
