Would just like to know what's considered to be better? Normal flossing, interdental brushes or using water flossers?

At the moment I use a mix of flossing and using inter dental brushes but I'm seeing more and more ads for water flossers and just wondered what, if any benefits of it there are? Or if it's simply about selling more gadgets?

Good day

Water flossers can sometimes reach difficult areas. I however feel that any type of flossing is a good adjunct to normal brushing

Thank you Dr M.

At my last dental appointment my dentist said my gums looked healthier and probings were good.

So it should be ok to just carry on with what I have been doing?

Water flossers work the best in terms of reaching the difficult places and are honestly the easiest to use as well. But of course they can be quite expensive so regularly flossing well enough can be just as good
