Should You Get Your Child a Water Flosser?

Fort Worth should I use waterpik?

In this post from The Parkway Dentist in Fort Worth, we’re reviewing the water flosser, also known as interdental cleaner, interdental irrigator, or water jet.

A water irrigation device oscillates a stream of water through a small tube to shoot out particles of food and plaque from around and between teeth. Numerous studies over the years have substantiated the effectiveness of water flossing for good dental health.
