Oral Irrigators Should Not Replace Brushing, Flossing.

Is flossing or an oral irrigator more effective for cleaning the tight spaces between the teeth? Although oral irrigators can be effective in removing food particles from teeth, oral irrigators should not replace brushing and flossing, still the most effective oral hygiene tools.  If plain dental floss gets stuck in your teeth, use the waxed variety. If you have a hard time handling dental floss, try a floss holder.
