Rebuilding your smile from scratch includes always making sure that you’re aware of what is causing any damage to your teeth and gums. In many cases, you may be able to protect your smile from damage that is occurring to your smile from bad habits or poor oral hygiene routines. Although brushing is important for keeping your mouth safe, it cannot clean between your teeth. In instances such as these, an interdental tool such as a water flosser will be needed.
As it’s always an important reminder to always have effective treatment plans in place, do not waste time to establish a water flosser routine for your interdental cleaning needs. Water flossers can clean out between your teeth on a daily basis to keep your smile safe from the risks of gum disease, tooth decay and other issues that can arise due to a failure to properly clean away plaque and bacteria. Furthermore, a water flosser is often easier to operate and less abrasive than other options. However, water flossers vary in effectiveness, so make sure the products you have chosen are suitable for your oral health needs.
In some situations, it may not be a practical goal to use dental floss, if you have bridges, implants, dentures or crowns in place, as threaded floss may not be able to fully reach all areas between teeth. At this time, it may be a wise option to consider upgrading to a water flosser treatment.
