Instructions on How to Clean Your Teeth with a Water Flosser

Posted .

Do you get confused and overwhelmed when using your water flosser? If so, don’t worry—Dr. Edmon R. Hutchison and our dental team are here to help you. With our tips and information, you’ll be able to use this handy and beneficial tool to clean your smile and prevent dental issues like tooth decay and gum disease.

To begin, fill the flosser’s tank with water—the temperature of the water doesn’t matter too much, but many prefer to use lukewarm water, especially if they have sensitive teeth and gums. Then, put the tank on the base and secure the lid on top. Next, choose the specific cleaning tip you would like to use to clean the crevices of your smile and then click it firmly on the top of the wand. Then, choose a comfortable pressure level for the flosser to use to clean your teeth.

When washing your smile, lean over the sink and put the tip of the tool in your mouth. To keep the water from splashing, wrap your lips around the wand. Then, turn the unit on.

The tool will begin spraying water at this point. Start by cleaning the back teeth. While doing so, hold the flosser just above the gumline at a 90-degree angle. Use this technique to clean between each tooth in your mouth. When you are done washing your smile, turn the flosser off and take the tip off the wand. You can remove the tip by pushing the eject button.

Now that you know how to use a water flosser in Royse City, Texas, your smile will be clean and healthy! However, please don’t forget to brush your teeth every morning and every night like the American Dental Association recommends.
