If flossing is too difficult or time-consuming with string floss, we suggest using a water flosser. Simply fill the machine’s reservoir with lukewarm water and start on low pressure. Place the wand’s tip in your mouth, and lean over the sink. You may close your mouth to avoid splashing, but allow the water to flow from your mouth into the sink.

To floss, put the tip behind your teeth. Aim the water stream right above your gumline at a 90 degree angle, pausing between teeth. The water will dislodge any food, plaque or debris that’s wedged between teeth and under the gumline.
