Do you hate flossing? You are not alone. Many ask what flossing alternatives are there and what does Dr. Mathews recommend?
First and foremost, remember that most teeth are lost as a result of gum disease. To illuminate the bacteria that causes gum disease you need to keep the spaces between and around the teeth clean. This is the reason brushing is not enough and daily flossing is recommended. If you can manage to keep those areas clean with floss alternatives then go for it. Here are some great products you can try…
Not exactly an alternative to flossing but an alternative to conventional flossing is the floss pick that some find easier to manipulate. If you don’t like them than try…
The Softpik Advanced
The Water Flosser
Combination Brush and Water Flosser (New)
So which one is the best and recommended by the Waterloo Dentist Dr. Mathews?
Whatever one works the best for you. Keep those tight spaces clean. As long as it gets done. Therefore, it doesn’t always mean that the most expensive or most popular brand is the best. Just do what works for you.
