A water flosser is a special interdental cleaning device which is used to wash away food and harmful debris that may be stuck between teeth. With a water flosser, a steady stream of water is used to clean your mouth, rather than a thread, which is used in traditional dental floss. As with all oral health systems, regardless of which type of flosser you select, make sure to use it every day. Other factors to consider include:
– Using a water flosser is easier than using traditional floss and is highly recommended for individuals that have range-of-motion issues, or struggle with traditional flossing products.
– Water flossers may benefit individuals who wear orthodontic aligners, dental bridges, dentures, and dental crowns.
– Water flossers with the ADA Seal of Acceptance have been shown to remove plaque buildup and to aid in the prevention of gum disease.
