The dentist’s two bits on the power flosser:
I have never been one to promote a lot of accessories from the dental office, but his is one that made the cut. We wish everyone could and would floss effectively. It is my opinion that NOTHING is as good as flossing to prevent gum inflammation. However, I realize that there are many patients who cannot or will not floss well. But if they will use this Power Flosser, I am recommending it. It is so much better than not doing anything to clean between the teeth. It is easy, comfortable, and inexpensive. For patients with bridges, braces, gaps, and implants, this accessory is highly recommended.
