Does an injury, medical condition or dental appliance make it difficult for you to properly floss your teeth every day? Do you ever wish there was another way to clean between your teeth? Good news: there is! Try a water flosser, another type of interdental cleaner. Here are some basic facts:
– Water flossers will clean between teeth like traditional dental floss can, but they don’t use thread. Instead, water flossers rely on high-powered water jets to clear away debris stuck between your teeth.
– If your dental floss is hindered by a dental appliance like braces or a dental bridge, a water flosser may be the best choice for you.
– Individuals with joint pain tend to struggle with flossing. An alternative interdental device like a water flosser is especially helpful for these individuals.
– When searching for the water flosser that works best for you, talk to your dentist or search for products that feature the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance.
