While there can be many common mistakes that can arise when brushing your teeth, one of the biggest ways that individuals are missing out is by not cleaning between the teeth and gums.
It's recommended that we floss or use a dental tool to remove bacteria in between the teeth at least once a day for optimal oral health. However, if you aren't fond of floss or tools that can be tricky to manoeuvre, a water flosser could be the perfect alternative.

How does it work?
Just like string floss, a water flosser helps to clean away plaque, bacteria and food debris from between teeth. It uses a gentle stream of pulsating water and is ideal for anyone to use, including those with braces, implants, crowns, bridges or periodontal pockets.
This one from Oral-B uses Oxyjet technology, also known as water enriched with microbubbles, to clean between teeth. It also comes with both aquafloss and precision jet nozzles to choose the perfect cleaning modes for your preference.
It's portable and rechargeable, so you can ensure that you have healthy teeth and gums wherever you go.
What people are saying
Amazon shoppers have been loving this Oral-B water flosser as a way to improve their oral health at home. Reviewers have noted that it offers "dentist-like cleaning results" with every use, getting into "tight spots that floss can’t even get at."
"Effective, compact and easy to use," raved one reviewer.
"I prefer this over just regular flossing now," shared one five-star reviewer who added that they "recommended this to almost everybody."
For the price, shoppers also say that this water flosser offers great value. As one person shared, "not only is the price right, but the performance is great."
With the three choices of cleaning settings (sensitive, moderate and intense), one reviewer added that this flosser "really works" and "helps to keep your gums healthy."
However, despite the positive reviews, some shoppers found this water flosser to be "too small" for everyday use.
"The main downside is the smaller water tank capacity," reads one review, which shoppers say only gives you "about 45 seconds of flossing time on each fill."
Although this water flosser may require more than one fill to get through your entire flossing routine, Amazon shoppers agree that it is a worthwhile purchase as an affordable alternative to other pricey brands.
