Have a plaque problem? Or perhaps you’re a regular coffee drinker who has noticed some stains popping up around your gum line? Whatever the case is, you’re not exactly thrilled with your oral hygiene. Brushing and that glorified fishing line isn’t just doing it for your teeth right now. If you want to take action and work to make your smile healthier, you should check out electric water flossers. 

We found the best water flossers for you. Water flossers are kind of what they sound like. They shoot pressurized water, which also sometimes pulses if you select that setting, at your teeth and gums. This water stimulates your gums, and according to Waterpik, one of our selections, says it removes 99.9 percent of plaque. It’ll also get rid of left-behind food debris from dinner and bacteria.

Dental irrigators might not be the most thrilling topic, but having healthy teeth is important. You don’t want your next dentist trip to be terrible because you racked up some cavities. Your teeth will also feel cleaner, which will make you feel more put-together. You’ll feel more confident when you smile for your selfie with your brighter teeth. Check out our five picks below.

STYLECASTER’s mantra is ‘Style To The People’— and our mission is to be an accessible, inclusive, ahead-of-the-trend destination for millennial and Gen Z women who want to live with style and substance.
