A water flosser is an OK investment, according to us and our dentist.
The electric/wireless device sprays water in between teeth, providing a quick floss when need to get clean.
$15 is a great deal, but note that we found flossing picks work better than the spray device.
A pack of 540 floss picks costs about $19.
They are easier to travel with, and provide quick & effective flossing when needed.
