If you are struggling using traditional tools when flossing between your teeth, it may be a good idea to consider investing in an alternative interdental cleaner such as a water flosser. Through the use of a water flosser, you can clean between teeth without worrying about ever using a thread. This can be extremely effective for individuals who struggle with traditional flossing tools due to joint pain, muscle ailments, or old age, which can make flossing labored or difficult.
One of the key benefits of water flossers is that they do not use thread. Instead, they use effective beams of water to spray directly on teeth to remove debris and food particles. Always make sure that any water flosser products you use are branded with the ADA Seal of Acceptance or are approved for use by your dentist.
Water flossers have been shown to help prevent gum disease and can be used for previous treatment services such as dental bridges, dentures, dental crowns or any other treatments that have been put in place to help restore your smile but limit the effects of thread reaching correctly between all areas between teeth.
