Years ago I bought a water pick flosser from the dentist. I bought it because it was advertised as an alternative to regular flossing for people who do not like using tape floss. I tried it a few times but did not like it. Has anyone here tried it?

Yes, I love mine. I use it with warm water prior to brushing. I used the lowest setting for a week when I first got it. I am always equally horrified and grateful if a tiny chunk of food gets dislodged as a result because it means I may have missed it with just a toothbrush. I still do manually floss though.
