A water flosser is a common interdental cleaning device used for oral health care habits to clean away food and harmful debris that may be stuck between teeth. With a water flosser, a steady beam of water is used to wash your mouth, rather than a thread from dental floss. As with all oral health routines regardless of which type of flosser you choose, make sure to use it daily.
When choosing a water flosser, look for a product that has the ADA Seal of Acceptance given directly by the American Dental Association. This ensures that the product has reached an adequate level of health and safety and can do the job for which it is expected accurately and effectively. If you are unsure about a product, you can always ask your dentist as well.
Water flossers are an excellent choice for interdental cleaners if you are old or struggle with any muscle or bone impairments that make traditional dental floss difficult. Water flossers are much easier on your limbs with less pressure needed to clean effectively. Water flossers are also effective for teeth that have had previous dental procedures such as dental crowns, bridges, dentures, and aligners and braces.
