Water flossing is a new source of dental technology designed to help floss your teeth. If you have not heard of the new-age technology, then you have come to the right blog! Our dentist, Dr. Steven Sachs with Sachs Family Dental in Orem, Utah, understands the importance of flossing and is happy to give you more information about a new way of flossing that may help you.
Almost everyone understands the significance of brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing regularly. However, many people still struggle with traditional floss string because it hurts their gums or fingers as they use it. The good news is water flossers eliminates the need for dental 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 popular among children or adults who struggle using traditional floss.
Water flossers also have another benefit, which is they 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 prevent cavities, clean your teeth, and fight gum disease. It is essential to remember that flossing does not replace the need to brush your teeth, but water flossers are a brilliant option to use instead of traditional floss if traditional floss is difficult for you. The bottom line is when it comes to flossing, any flossing tool is always better to use than never to floss at all.
