Best Waterpik® Water Flossers for Dental Braces

Easier cleaning of dental braces and orthodontic appliances

When it comes to ideal oral health, you can’t beat brushing followed by a quality flossing routine – but rushing and flossing dental braces and orthodontic appliances can be a challenge. Waterpik® Water Flossers make the job easier, and they are up to 3X more effective than traditional flossing.

Our recommended Water Flossers for dental braces and orthodontic appliances come with the special Orthodontic Tip. It features a tapered brush that removes hard-to-reach plaque around brackets, wires, and other orthodontic hardware (learn more about how to floss with braces using a Waterpik® Water Flosser).

Why is cleaning dental braces and orthodontic appliances important?

Food particles frequently get caught in brackets and wires. Plaque around brackets can cause decalcification (white spots) on your teeth. And additional hardware can make gum disease harder to prevent.
