    Flossing is a helpful method to get this desired result . Dental floss, with its different types, is used mainly to remove remaining food debris and accumulated plaque between teeth which the toothbrush cannot reach in most cases.

    But in some cases, Flossing with conventional dental floss become difficult like in case of orthodontic treatment, implants, bridges and crowded teeth.

    So, a new technique in Flossing has been invented called "water Flossing", in which removing of plaque and debris depends on focusing water under pressure comes from equipment's tip in teeth cervix, below gingival margins and in between teeth.
