Our Fox River Periodontics, PC team encourages safe flossing to care for teeth and gums. Water flossers are great tools in your smile care kit for preventing gum disease, especially for those who have trouble flossing their smiles with traditional dental floss. Water flossers spray a stream of water into your mouth to clean between your teeth. They also help remove harmful particles from the hard-to-reach areas of your mouth that your toothbrush is unable to properly clean. Water flossers can help in the following ways:
–Increase your chances of flossing: Because water flossers are so easy and fun to use, they increase your chances of flossing. All you need to do is turn the flosser on and point it to the area of your mouth that needs cleaning.
–Deeply clean around your dental work: Many people struggle with cleaning around dental work like dental bridges, dental crowns, and dental implants. However, a water flosser helps deeply clean around your dental work without the risks of damaging or loosening it.
–Help you floss around braces: Flossing around the brackets and bands of braces can be extremely difficult. In fact, it can be so difficult that it makes people forget flossing altogether. If you’re one of these people, try cleaning your smile with the water flosser. The flosser can spray around your orthodontic appliance and deeply clean your smile without any trouble.
–Give you a fresher breath: Oftentimes you suffer from bad breath because there are food particles and bacteria stuck in the crevices of your smile. If you use a water flosser, it will remove these substances and give you a fresher breath.
–Improve the health of your gums: Gum disease is a serious and dangerous dental condition that can severely alter your oral health if you don’t floss your smile at least once a day. So, if you use a water flosser, your chances of falling victim to gum disease quickly reduce.
