(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.
