Do you have trouble flossing? Do you have range of motion issues or dental work that make it difficult to floss? Fortunately, modern dentistry allows you to use alternative interdental tools to easily clean between teeth. Through the use of a water flosser, you can you use a stream of water to clean between teeth and wash away food particles and debris.
Rather than continually struggling with threaded floss, talk to your dentist about switching to a water flosser. They can be useful if you are struggling with joint pain or are at an advanced age. Water flossers benefit individuals who have dental work in place that may make traditional threaded floss impractical. This includes bridges, dentures, dental crowns and braces. While this can cause problems with dental floss, water flossers will still be able to easily and effectively reach between your teeth and dental work.
If you have any questions or concerns about which form of water flosser will work best for you, it’s important to visit your dentist and discuss their product recommendations.. Furthermore, always look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance on any products you plan to use.
