I floss mostly because I’m horrified at the the idea of teeth scrapings at the dentist. It’s a great enough fear that flossing has become even more important than the actual brushing. Believe me, both are definitely an ingrained part of my daily hygiene practices. I recently began researching water flossers, though, and it’s been quite enlightening for an eco gal. When you think of the amount of floss and containers that find their way into landfills, it’s no surprise that the water flosser seems to bare its eco-banner pretty loudly.
I’ve found water flossers have it all over traditional dental floss.
