If you are one who has trouble flossing each day, we have a solution for you: Water flossers! Water flossers are great products that are beneficial and effective. They are small, wand-like tools that spray water in steady pulses. All you need to do is put the top of the flosser against the crevice between each tooth. The flosser will spray the water into the gap and will free the food particles and plaque that reside there. This is a great tool that makes flossing easy and it also lessens your chances of harming your gums.
If you use a water flosser once a day, your smile will remain in tip-top shape and your teeth will be able to fight off tooth decay and gum disease. This is also a great tool for those who have braces or dental bridges. Water flossers take the complication out of flossing—just for you. So, if you are interested in an easier and more fun way to floss, consider using a water flosser.
Please remember to also brush twice a day, rinse your mouth once a day, and visit your dentist every six months. These tasks need to be performed in addition to flossing.
