Modern Dental Care: Water Flossers

Posted .

Are you ready to upgrade your smile using modern technology and the desire for better oral health? Although traditional dental floss remains effective, there are various other interdental treatments that can also be used in the place of thread, especially water flossers.

Modern dental care via water flossers is the wave of the future of oral health care. Here are some things you should know about water flossers:

– Individuals with joint pain tend to struggle the most with dental floss, so instead switch to another interdental tool such as a water flosser, which is easier to operate.
– When selecting the water flosser that will work best for you, consult your dentist or look for the products that feature the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.
– Water flossers are designed to clean between teeth like threaded dental floss can, with the key difference being that water flossers do not use thread, but instead, depend on water jets to blast away debris stuck between teeth.
– Typically, if your dental floss is hindered by earlier or ongoing dental treatments such as aligners, bridges, crowns, or dentures, then water flossers would be the better choice.
