Is dental floss giving you problems? No worries, switch to a water flosser! Water flossing is an excellent alternative interdental cleaning method to dental floss and can be highly effective in many situations. For a deep clean between teeth and a product that can effectively wash away harmful acids and plaque, a water flosser is a wonderful choice.

Unlike traditional dental floss, a water flosser does not use a thread, but rather a strong beam of water to blast away food residue left behind on and between teeth. Studies have shown that water flossers that have the ADA Seal of Acceptance have been proven to wash away plaque buildup. If a water flosser does not have the seal given by the American Dental Association, consult with your dentist about the product before use.

Many individuals may lack the strength or stamina to use traditional floss and could benefit greatly from a water flosser. Also, water flossers have been proven to be highly effective for various dental services including dental bridges, orthodontic aligners, dentures, and even dental crowns.
