Several weeks ago I posted a story about research showing that oral irrigating devices, such as the WaterPik, are as effective in removing plaque as using dental floss, and do a better job at removing food debris.  I find that they are very effective for people who have difficulty manipulating dental floss in their mouth.  They also make it a lot easier to clean under bridges and around orthodontic bands, brackets, and wires than floss.  They are also more enjoyable to use than floss for many people.

I have attached a YouTube video showing the proper technique for using oral irrigating devices. You can see it by clicking here.
