DH has a space between two back molars that is wider than the others, and food often gets wedged inside. Some of the softer stuff, like lettuce, causes distress because when he uses dental floss or one of those plastic picks to try to remove it his gum becomes inflamed and sore.
I'm thinking that a waterpik would be gentler in removing the debris, and would be good for him to use on a regular basis as well.
Does anyone use one of these and would you recommend a certain brand? I think that I have also seen a type advertised that uses bursts of air rather than water. If I am correct, would that be a better (gentler) option than the water?
Thanks for your advice!
