Is traditional threaded dental floss giving you a hard time? Due to age or an issue with your muscles, it may be difficult to effectively use a dental floss every day. As an alternative, try an interdental cleaning tool such as a water flosser to effectively clean your smile as effectively as dental floss can. Water flossers are easier to operate because they do not use thread and can be focused on your teeth using a steady beam of water.

Water flossers are highly effective interdental cleaning tools for individuals that have previous oral health care procedures done. If you have orthodontic aligners, dentures, dental bridges, or dental crowns, traditional dental floss may not work as intended. Thus, the use of a water flosser may be needed.

When selecting a water flosser, speak with your dentist about product recommendations and suggestions. In addition, always look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance, which is administered by the American Dental Association to note those products that are deemed safe and effective for use.
