Are you looking for a more natural way to clean your teeth? If so, we have exciting news for you! Water flossing is a new system that can leave your smile feeling fantastic! To help you learn more about water flossing, our dentist, Dr. Steven Sachs with Sachs Family Dental in Orem, Utah, is happy to tell you how water flossing can help you.
Everyone knows the importance of brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing regularly. However, many people struggle with traditional floss string as it hurts their gums or fingers as they hold it. Water flossers eliminate the need for string because it uses a steady beam of water pressure to clean deep between your teeth and along your gum line. Water flossers are very easy to use, which makes them practical for children or people who struggle using traditional floss.
Another added benefit is that water flossers are just as easy to use if you have braces, because of the ease and water pressure that can get in those hard-to-reach places. The American Dental Association has given many water flossers their Seal of Acceptance, which means it has been proven safe and effective at helping clean your teeth, prevent cavities, and fight against gum disease. It is important to remember that flossing does not replace the need to brush, but water flossers are an excellent option to use instead of traditional floss. The critical thing to remember when it comes to any flossing tool is that it’s always better to floss than never to floss at all.
As you can see, there are many benefits to choosing water flossers if you struggle with traditional floss. If you have questions about your oral health or would like to schedule a checkup with our dentist, please call 801-225-4701 today to book an appointment. We are always happy to help you.
