Does It Work? We test the Power Floss

Imagine an easier, faster way to keep your smile clean.

Too good to be true? KSFY's Bridget Bennett tests the Power Floss Dental Water Jet to find out if it's really worth your money.

We stopped by Pillar Dental in Sioux Falls to test the product. Hygienist Becky Shaefers says she flosses once a day and sees about eight patients a day, flossing their teeth as well.

The commercial states claims the tool is the fast, easy, pain-free way to floss every day.

After opening the package, it only took a couple of minutes to figure out how to use the power floss tool.

"It was pretty easy to use, pretty easy to use, pretty easy to assemble," Becky said.

But after giving it a few tries, Becky says it's not really that powerful.

"Not powerful enough to blast the food or bacteria off your teeth and you're supposed to floss every day, so I would stick with daily floss. Regular floss will do the job better than this," she said.

The final verdict? She says it doesn't really work. While it could get debris out of braces, Pillar Dental encourages real flossing once per day.
