Smile Therapy: Water Flossers

Posted .


Have you ever heard of a water flosser before? Although they may seem highly familiar when you’re in a dentist office, they have in recent years become more prevalent in at-home use. Water flossers can add an additional layer to your oral health care and assist with interdental cleaning. If you’re not happy with your threaded floss, consider switching to a water flosser.

If you are looking for an alternative interdental cleaner to accurately clean between your teeth, a water flosser is a good choice. Water flossers do not use threaded floss but instead focus on a beam of water that is sprayed directly onto your teeth. They are shown to be effective for washing away plaque buildup and can even help in the prevention of gum disease.

Water flossers are noted for their ease-of-use and are extremely beneficial for individuals who have muscle disorders or are beginning to get older. Water flossers are also highly recommended for individuals who have had previous oral enhancements such as dental bridges, dentures, dental crowns, and orthodontic aligners that may get in the way of traditional dental floss. Water flossers can circumvent these issues by spraying concentrated water where needed.

Be sure to make time in your life to visit your dentist at Royse City Dental Care for oral hygiene enhancement, and if necessary, to schedule an appointment with Dr. Edmon R. Hutchison for a thorough exam of your oral health. You can get ahold of our dentist office in Royse City, Texas, by calling us at 972-636-2417.
