Flossing is essential, it removes the plaque from below the gum line, which can erode tooth enamel and develop into tartar, and it also helps prevent cavities.
But, there are people who do not like flossing because they don’t like having their hands in their mouths - even their own, and it can be awkward to floss if you don’t know how to do it correctly, and even painful if you wrap the string too tight!

Well, now that technologies are advancing, dental health brands have come out with water floss - a device that is similar to regular string floss, which removes food stuck between your teeth and the bacteria lingering there before it hardens into plaque!
Recently, a video went viral on TikTok of a young man who was demonstrating how to use water floss.
However, something else happened that caught netizens’ attention.
In the video, the user @kochikitio can be seen trying to use the new water flosser he just bought… without reading the instructions first.
When he tried using the water floss, the water came out of the device so fast that it started splashing all over his face, “I bought the same one, the pressure is crazy!” one person commented.
The video has since garnered over 96.8 thousand views at the time of writing, with many in the comment section explaining to him how to properly use the water floss, “You have to put it closer to your teeth!”
This is so funny!
Guys, please be careful when using water floss, and remember to read the instructions first!
And if your teeth are bleeding… it’s totally normal! In fact, bleeding when you floss is actually a sign that you should floss more!
