If flossing with the long string is a struggle, switch to a water flosser. Typically, water flossers are used when a traditional thread becomes too difficult due to muscle disorders, a physical accident, orthodontic braces are being worn, or simply old age. No matter what reason you need to switch to a water flosser, they can impress others with their ability to keep your teeth and gums clean.

A water flosser functions by using a single stream of water to blast the areas between your teeth. Unlike traditional dental floss, water flossers use no string at all. Water flossers are also easier on the joints and can be operated very effectively.

As you age, using traditional dental floss can become more difficult. In addition, traditional floss can easily fray if it is not single filament thread. However, due to a water flosser’s lack of thread, the product can often reach in areas and succeed where traditional floss will fail. Water flossers are a fantastic tool to use on teeth that have previous replacements or restoration procedures. This includes orthodontic aligners, dental implants, dental bridges, veneers, and dental crowns and so much more!

With water flossers, your smile will not only look better, but it will be healthier too.
