Brushing teeth is to remove dental plaque, prevent dental caries and periodontal disease, massage the gingiva, enhance the disease resistance of gingival tissue.
Toothbrush: perform basic tooth cleaning, but studies have shown that "up to 40 percent of tooth surfaces cannot be cleaned with a toothbrush."
Oral irrigator: not only clean all kinds of gaps, holes, concave and convex surface, but also achieve microscopic and thorough "cleaning" effect. The water also massages the gingiva, promoting the blood circulation of gingiva and enhancing the disease resistance of local tissues. It can also eliminate bad breath caused by poor oral hygiene.
Although water flossing reaches areas that tooth brushing can’t, it is not a replacement for brushing your teeth. Rather, it is an alternative to string floss, interdental brushes, or floss threaders to remove plaque and debris that brushing leaves behind.
