Should I use a waterpick?

A waterpick, or irrigation device, should not be used as a substitute for brushing and flossing because it does not remove plaque. However, waterpicks can be used to remove food from the areas around braces where a toothbrush can’t reach. Dentists also recommend that patients with gum disease use a waterpick with an antibacterial agent in the reservoir.
