A review of the literature answers many questions related to the use of water flossers, the first of which was introduced in 1962. Numerous studies suggest that water flossers remove biofilm from tooth surfaces and bacteria from periodontal pockets better than string flossing and manual toothbrushing – together or alone. Dentists should review these findings and consider recommending water flossers for appropriate patients to improve their oral health.
