Can a water flosser save your smile? A water flosser is an interdental device that is customized to supplement your oral health care treatment using an alternative oral health care treatment method of cleaning between teeth. Water flossers work by using a unique device that can spray lines of water at teeth, rather than a thread to scrub between teeth.

Listed below are a few things you should know about water flossers:

– Water flossers may benefit individuals with oral treatment amenities such as orthodontic aligners, dental bridges, dentures, and dental crowns.
– Water flossers, like traditional dental floss, are used to clean between teeth, except the difference is that water flossers use a stable beam of water to wash away food particles and debris.
– Flossing with water flossers is easier than using traditional floss, and thus it is extremely recommended for individuals that struggle or have difficulty using traditional flossing methods.
– Water flossers with the ADA Seal of Acceptance have been shown to easily wash away plaque buildup and have also been shown to aid in the prevention of gum disease.
