We'll be highlighting some of the key things to consider when choosing between a water flosser (such as Waterpik) or traditional string floss. Mangler: threads.

Dental flossing is described as a way to clean between teeth and around the surface of teeth. Floss is a relatively cheap tool for removing food.
