Beyond brushing your teeth, it is important to make sure you use an interdental cleaner to clean between teeth in areas that brushing alone cannot reach. If you struggle with traditional threaded floss, consider an alternative interdental tool such as a water flosser. In conjunction with brushing, a water flosser can ensure your entire smile is kept clean. Here are some of the benefits of water flossers:
– Water flossers are highly effective interdental cleaners because they can clean between teeth as well as traditional threaded floss. When selecting a water flosser, look for ones that feature the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
– Water flossers have been shown to be effective in preventing oral health risks such as periodontal disease, also known as gum disease.
– Water flossers are extremely easy to use. You simply spray the water faucet directly on your teeth for an easy clean.
– In some situations, previous treatments can hinder your ability to floss between your teeth. If you have orthodontic aligners, dentures, dental crowns, or dental bridges in place, water flossers may be able to benefit you.
