Oral Health Marvels: Water Flossers

Posted .

Are you aware of the different types of interdental cleaners that can be used to clean between your teeth? Aside from dental flossing thread, which is the most common form of interdental cleaner, there are more modern and sleeker versions that can be used to effectively clean between teeth without the use of any form of floss. One example is a water flosser. Common facts concerning water flossers can be found below:

– Water flossers can help to effectively clean between your teeth even if you have the following restorations or replacements present in your mouth: braces, dental bridges, dental crowns and dentures.

– Because all water flossers are not equal, you will need to speak with your dentist about which products are most effective to use.

– Water flossers are beneficial for your smile because they can help lower your risk of gum disease and tooth decay by washing away food particles and debris between teeth.

– Water flossers use beams of water to clean between teeth and avoid the use of threaded floss altogether

– If you are suffering from any form of joint pain or muscle issues, try switching to water flossers as they tend to be easier to operate than traditional dental floss.
