Why Water Flossers Are a Good Oral Health Investment

Posted on 6/20/2018 by Sandra Embree
Water Flosser Everwell Dentistry MI 48104While brushing is one of the best things you can do for the health of your teeth and gums, you also need to floss to make sure you are getting rid of all those particles that the toothbrush can't reach. Here is why water flossers are a good oral health investment.

Why Buy a Water Flosser?

The benefits of flossing are great when done regularly (at least once a day), but there is another level of flossing that can be even more beneficial. Water flossing.

According to some studies, water flossers are 50 percent more effective than traditional flossing and even more effective than some very expensive air flossers. Even if you floss daily with a string flosser, you may not be getting all the spots in those back molars or you may be using the wrong technique.

Deeper Flossing

Water flossers are really cool, and some can even let you set for flossing and massage, so your gums are getting the royal treatment. Different tips can help not only with flossing, but other conditions like plaque.

Which Kind of Water Flosser Do I Need?

There are several kinds of water flossers in the market and all of them work well, but depending on your oral health, you may need more options.

If you wear braces, have gum disease, or have a large number of fillings, buying a water flosser can be an excellent investment and can help protect your gums, and improve your oral health.

It takes a while to get used to, but our hygienists can give you some very helpful tips once you get your water flosser. In general, patients who use a water flosser are happy with the results and even happier that they can finally keep their gums healthy.
