Wonder what a water flosser is? Not sure how it can give you cleaner teeth? We’re here to share all you need to know about what water flossers can do for your smile!

What are water flossers and how do they work?

Water flossers, also known as oral irrigators or dental water jets, use a pressurised stream of water to remove plaque, debris, and bacteria between your teeth and along the gumline. Every water flosser typically comes with a handheld unit, reservoir, and nozzle.

But how does a water flosser work? A targeted stream of water is directed between teeth and along the gum line, effectively cleaning areas that may be challenging to reach with traditional floss. This method is considered gentle on the gums while effectively maintaining oral hygiene.

Benefits Of Using A Water Flosser

There’s so many reasons why a water flosser can be beneficial for your oral health. Let’s find out how this innovative device can take your daily oral care routine to the next level!

Effective plaque removal

Water flossers can reach areas that traditional floss may miss. By effectively removing plaque, using a water flosser can reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease.

Suitable for sensitive teeth and gums

Water flossers are often gentler on the gums compared to traditional floss, making them suitable for individuals with sensitive gums.


These devices are designed to make cleaning your teeth really easy, and are less cumbersome to deal with compared to dental floss. In fact, flossing doesn’t have to be a chore even if you’re wearing braces. As a less painful option to traditional flossing, it’s one of the most effective ways to keep your teeth clean while on invisible braces treatment.

Improved gum health

Using your water flosser regularly helps to keep your gums healthy, by reducing inflammation and promoting good blood circulation.

Here's How To Choose The Best Water Flosser

Thinking about buying a water flosser but not sure which one could be right for you? Read our mini guide below to learn how to pick the best one.

Water pressure settings

Firstly, opt for a model with adjustable water pressure settings to cater to those with sensitive teeth and specific oral health needs. The water reservoir size is equally important – ensure it meets your requirements without requiring constant refills.

Nozzle options

Look out for models with diverse nozzle options, as they can be tailored for specific purposes like cleaning around braces or targeting particular areas.


If you’re always on the go, consider the convenience of a compact and portable water flosser, ensuring that your oral health doesn’t take a backseat even when you’re travelling.
