If you like thinking about getting your smile even cleaner than it is after brushing and flossing, you may be considering a water flosser. After all, it’s a gentle yet powerful way to remove plaque that even your toothbrush and dental floss may miss (such as plaque beneath your gumline and around dental work). It’s comfortable and easy to use. So, if you have even the slightest interest, it must be time, right? Perhaps! However, if you’re not sure if this is the right move or what professionals have to say about it, you may need some helpful answers first. We’re happy to offer them!
What Are You Looking For?
Why have you begun considering a water flosser? Are you looking for a replacement for your dental floss? If so, remember that it is best to use this flosser in addition to your brushing and flossing for best results. If you’re simply looking to remove more plaque than you’re able to with your usual brushing and flossing habits, then choosing a flosser may be a wonderful decision!
What Does The ADA Say?
While not every single option on the market is approved by the American Dental Association (ADA), you will find that certain brands do receive the seal of acceptance! As a result, you can rest assured that choosing to use a water flosser is a solid, beneficial choice for your oral health. Remember, the more plaque you can remove from your smile between visits, the better.
What Do We Suggest?
We suggest that you go ahead and use a water flosser after brushing and flossing if you so desire. If you have additional questions, if you’ve been having trouble with keeping your smile healthy, or if you’re attempting to address other problems related to your oral health, we encourage you to let us know ASAP.
