While traditional brushing and flossing will always have a place in your oral hygiene routine, newer dental cleaning technology makes it easier than ever to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Water flossing is recommended by dentists for its ability to fight plaque buildup when used in conjunction with regular brushing and flossing. While flossing does a fabulous job at removing the gunk that hides in between teeth, the debris that gets stuck beneath your gums can be harder to tackle. Those with braces, crowded teeth, permanent retainers, sensory disorders, or dexterity issues all stand to benefit from this type of device. The Panasonic Professional Cordless Water Flosser navigates those hard-to-reach areas with ease—and for Prime Day, it's 30 percent off.
With a flossing power of 1,600 ultrasonic water pulses per minute, Panasonic's water flosser is strong enough to remove food debris that might have gotten left behind after brushing. It's designed with five different types of oral care in mind: interdental cleaning (spots in between your teeth), periodontal pocket cleaning (the pockets wherein your gums meet your teeth), teeth surface cleaning, gum stimulation, and orthodontic care. Equipped with ultrasonic waterjet technology, it generates thousands of microbubbles that break up plaque on contact. Two tapered nozzles rotate while in use to ensure you never miss a spot (especially if you wear braces).
According to double board-certified cosmetic dentist Mansi Oza, DMD, the owner of Thurmont Smiles, water flossing is an incredibly convenient way to knock out new plaque before it compacts on your teeth, especially when added to regular flossing. "Many people find [water flossers] easier to use," says Dr. Oza, "It tends to remove newly-formed plaque easily, whereas the string floss will remove more stubborn plaque.”
With over 3,000 5-star reviews, this rechargeable water irrigator is a great travel companion. One hour of charge is enough juice to last you up to 10 minutes of non-stop flossing. (Bonus: Since the charging base uses batteries, you don’t need to worry about finding an electrical outlet to plug a bulky cord into while on vacation.) Its lightweight design makes it easy to hold for longer flossing sessions, while the smart touch button controls can change the power level in an instant.
The Panasonic Professional Cordless Water Flosser is usually priced at $100, but it's on sale for just $70 during Prime Day. Adding a water flosser into your daily teeth cleaning routine will get you closer to the cleanest smile you’ve had outside the dentist’s office.
