Even though many individuals think the only form of cleaning between teeth is with threaded dental floss, there are actually numerous products available that can help clean between the teeth. These are known as interdental cleaners and come in many forms. One highly effective alternative interdental cleaning tool that functions similar to threaded floss is known as a water flosser.

Water flossers are extremely effective for numerous treatments including treatments for individuals who suffer from gum disease. Furthermore, water flossers are often easier to use them than threaded floss is, and can be used on previous procedures in which dental floss may not be acceptable or practical, including for individuals wearing orthodontic aligners, dental bridges, dental crowns, and dentures.

When choosing a water flosser, always look for products that feature the ADA Seal of Acceptance. The ADA Seal is awarded by the American Dental Association for products that have reached the highest standard of safety and effectiveness. For additional help with your oral health care, speak with your dentist.
