Water flossers have come a long way since their earliest iteration. They were patented in the mid-1950s but not commercially available until the early 1960s. Today, almost every oral health care brand offers its own version of the water flosser. Generally, a water flosser features a basin filled with water, a pump, hose, and nozzle. While these devices offer an easier-to-use alternative to traditional string floss, they can be messy and bulky. Who wants their bathroom mirror covered in water spots?
Unfortunately, water flossers have not been proven to remove the base layer of plaque that causes cavities. At the end of the day, isn't that why we bother to floss? We want to get rid of that plaque before it turns into tartar! So, if water flossers aren't accomplishing that then it's time to look for a better option.
Enter the Slate Electric Flosser: a device that addresses many of the cons of water flossers while also offering superior plaque removal. Like a water flosser, the Slate Electric Flosser has an easy-to-hold ergonomic handle and helps improve gum health. However, unlike a water flosser, the Slate Electric Flosser is mess-free and compact, making it much easier to travel with.
Most importantly, the Slate Electric Flosser is highly effective at removing plaque and bacteria. Its sonic vibrations help the floss pass through tight tooth contacts and scrub away even the stickiest plaque. The gum sweeps target hard-to-reach spaces between teeth, massaging the gums and scrubbing areas where cavities are most likely to occur. Our design also a tongue scraper to help eliminate leftover bacteria that sits on your tongue and causes bad breath.
If the goal is intentional plaque removal and truly clean teeth, then the Slate Electric Flosser is a clear winner! Minimize mess and maximize your oral health by trading in your water flosser for a Slate flosser.
