Water Flossers are a Popular Flossing Tool
Did you know, water flossers have become a popular dental tool? Yes, it’s true! Water flossers have changed the way many people floss their teeth each day. The reason is because of the many benefits water flossers have to offer. Our dentist, Dr. Duke Kim with Ballston Dental Arts in Arlington VA, cares about your oral health and encourages you to floss regularly. Both water flossers and traditional threaded floss are effective. However, if you are struggling with threaded floss and are looking for a new way to floss your teeth, then we have a surprise for you!
Here are some benefits of water flossers:
- If you are looking for the highest quality water flossers on the market, speak with your dentist about using products that feature the American Dental ADA Seal of Acceptance.
- Water flossers have been proven in studies to help lower your risk of dental erosion, tooth decay, and gum disease.
- Water flossers are demonstratively easier to use than traditional flossing tools. This is because they do not use thread but instead rely on jets of water to spray the areas between teeth where food and debris may end up lodged.
- Water flossers are highly beneficial for individuals who have had previous dental work done. If you have orthodontic treatments or replacement such as bridges or dentures in place, water flossers can often be more effective than other flossing tools.
It is easy to see why water flossers have become so popular recently, thanks to the many benefits they have provided.
