Flossing your teeth is essential to your oral health. Whichever tool you choose to use to floss your teeth is up to you. However, many people do not know about water flossers as an option to floss your teeth. That is why our dental team is happy to share some information with you.

Our dentist, Dr. Paul Roe with PR Cosmetic and General Dentistry in Puyallup, Washington, encourages everyone to floss each day. Water flossing is a way to floss if you struggle with the string of traditional dental floss.

Here is some vital information on water flossers:

-Why struggle with threaded pieces of floss when you can switch to a thread-free tool such as water flossers?
-Water flossers are developed and designed to enhance your smile through the use of water only.
-Water flossers are effective interdental cleaners as they have been proven to clean out plaque and bacteria between teeth.
-Water flossers are known for their ease-of-use and are comfortable treatment options for those with frequent pain.
-Tooth restoration treatments such as dentures, dental bridges, and dental crowns can often make flossing difficult. However, water flossers can still clean out your mouth even with these treatments in place.

Remember that any flossing tool is better to use than not flossing your teeth at all. If you want to keep your teeth healthy, then remember to floss each day.
