Is A Water Flosser Worth The Financial Investment For Your Family?

Posted on 1/15/2020 by Sandra Embree
Is A Water Flosser Worth The Financial Investment For Your Family?You may have been told that you need to improve your flossing. In fact, you may have been told that you need a water flosser to help you floss your teeth properly.

We understand that having good dental hygiene is important, especially when you are trying to prevent gum disease and tooth decay. You already know that you need to brush and floss every day. Water flossers can be expensive. Is investing in a water flosser worth it for your family? We have some thoughts.

What Is a Water Flosser?

Water flossers make flossing easier for everyone. Instead of you using string to floss every tooth, water flossers do the flossing for you. They are really effective for removing food and plaque from your teeth and gums. They help keep braces clean as well, which is difficult to do with a regular flosser.

If you already have gum disease, water flossers are able to reach the pockets between your teeth and gums to keep them clean. Water flossers are a less painful option for people with sensitive teeth and gums.

How Much Does a Water Flosser Cost?

Water flossers cost between $40 and $200. While that seems like a lot of money, especially when flossers are $5.00 for a pack of 250, consider this. Over time, water flossers have been shown to significantly decrease the amount of bacteria and the plaque along the gumline that cause gum disease.

Both tooth decay and gum disease can become very costly for your wallet, as we work to repair the damage to your mouth caused by bacteria. If you invest in a water flosser, you would be able to reap the benefits for years to come.

If you have questions about water flossers, or your overall dental health, why not give us a call? We would love to answer your questions.
