An easier way to floss... without the string

Dental Floss. Can you think of any stronger love/hate relationship?

No one will agree that they love to floss, but it is important to clean interdentally (between your teeth) including in-between dental crowns and implants). So if you are among those people who don’t floss perhaps it is time to consider a different alternative.

What is the alternative you ask? An oral irrigator, also known as a water flosser or air flosser. These great little devices pressure water and/or air through a small nozzle which gets in-between your teeth and under your gums gently, providing a more comfortable experience.


Clinical studies show that the Water Flosser is up to:

  • 51% more effective than dental floss for reducing gingivitis
  • 2 times as effective as dental floss at reducing gingival bleeding
  • 29% more effective as dental floss at removing plaque


The staff at Ferry Dental, Southampton, love using their Water flosser / Air Flosser! Dr Papantonis, Dentist at Ferry Dental, always admits to his patients that he does not floss and this is the reason why!

Pros of using a Water Flosser / Air Flosser:

  • Gentle on the gums (less likely to cause bleeding)
  • Ideal for people who wear braces
  • Ideal for people who do not have enough time to floss properly. It only takes a minute !
  • Can be used with teeth that are crowned ( lack of access makes it difficult to floss around crowns or bridges)
  • Ideal for dental implants
  • Ideal for those who have crooked misaligned teeth
  • Can be used with Mouthwash (instead of water) – even more beneficial
  • Quicker than using floss and very easy to use

I have had a fantastic experience with Ferry Dental.I approached them as an anxious patient (having not been to the dentist for nearly a decade) and the staff were so friendly and calming. Despite having a big cry before my first appointment my consultation was fantastic and I left feeling much more comfortable with the prospect of going to the dentist.Since then I’ve had many appointments with Marwa (orthodontist) and the hygienist and no longer dread or cry before appointments. Marwa in particular is so kind and friendly and always checks in with me throughout appointments to make sure I’m calm and happy.All the staff have been so friendly and know who I am and have been fully informed of my anxiety. It’s been very relieving to go from appointment to appointment and each practitioner knows exactly who I am, what I’ve had done, and really look after me as an individual.Also a massive shout out to the reception team (particularly Anna) who are always so so friendly and greet me by name and know who I am.I highly recommend this dentist - particularly those who hate going to the dentist and/or suffer from anxiety. A massive thank you to Ferry Dental for helping me get over my fear of the dentist ❤️

I had a great experience at Ferry Dental Centre. The staff was very friendly and professional, and the facility was clean and modern. Dr Denis took the time to explain everything to me and I felt very comfortable throughout my visit. I will definitely be recommending Ferry Dental Centre to my friends and family.
