Did you know that cleaning between your teeth is possible with other tools beyond traditional dental floss? One of those tools that has been proven to be highly effective is known as a water flosser. Water flossers work by spraying a jet of water directly at teeth to help wash away food particles, plaque buildup, and harmful acids that brushing cannot remove by itself. For more evidence regarding water flossers, see below:
Water flossers are excellent choices for people who may struggle using traditional dental floss. When choosing a water flosser that can suit your specific needs, talk with your dentist for product recommendations or look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. Not only can water flossers help remove plaque buildup, but they are instrumental in keep gum disease away.
Building up you tooth enamel begins with using effective tools and applying treatments, specifically brushing and flossing daily. Water flossers are highly effective for those with previous dental services like dental crowns, dental bridges, and orthodontic aligners, as it can often reach areas traditional floss cannot reach. Water flossers are also ideal for removing harmful acids from your teeth after snacks or meals.
