Interdental Cleaning Tools: Water Flossers

Posted .


Would you like to upgrade your oral health care treatment daily routine? Would you like to improve the type of dental floss you are using to clean between teeth? If so, consider switching out traditional threaded floss for a water flosser.

Water flossers are highly advanced interdental cleaning tools that can be purchased online or in stores. They work by using a beam of steady wash to rinse away bacteria and any food residue that may linger between teeth. Water flossers, when used properly, are just as effective as traditional threaded floss, and in some areas, are even more effective. If you have orthodontic aligners, dental crowns, or dentures, flossing with traditional floss may be difficult or impossible. Instead, switch to a water flosser.

The type of water floss you are using is extremely important. Not all flossers are created equal, so make sure you’re looking for a water flosser that is recommended by your dentist or features the ADA Seal of Acceptance. The ADA Seal of Acceptance is given out for those products which meet the highest standards of safety and effectiveness in the industry.
