Many people with dental braces or orthodontic appliances simply don't floss because it's so difficult. Cleaning around dental braces and orthodontic appliances with regular dental floss requires a floss threader (which is time-consuming to use) and dental floss can easily shred or get stuck in hardware.
Waterpik® Water Flossers are faster, easier, and more effective to use than regular dental floss or a floss threader. And we have designed a variety of models that are ideal for adults, teens, and kids.
Using an optimal combination of pressure and pulsation, the Waterpik® Water Flosser removes plaque and food particles from brackets and wires, and it massages and stimulates the gums. These actions help reduce plaque on the teeth and around hardware, while also improving gum health (learn more about how to floss with braces using a Waterpik® Water Flosser).
An independent clinical study concluded that the Waterpik® Water Flosser is 3X as effective as traditional brushing and flossing combined and 5x as effective as brushing alone.
