If you are looking for an alternative interdental cleaning tool to protect the gaps between your teeth, consider the use of a water flosser. A water flosser is similar to dental floss in that it can clean areas between your teeth. However, rather than using thread to clean out the areas, water flossers focus on using a steady beam of water to rinse away food debris and bacteria.
To help reduce your risk for gum disease and plaque buildup, use a water flosser on a daily basis. In addition to brushing your teeth, always use interdental cleaning tools such as water flossers to clean areas that your brush cannot reach. Furthermore, water flossers may prove to be more beneficial than traditional dental floss, as they can reach areas that may be blocked to the thread, including teeth that have treatment services such as bridges, dentures or dental crowns in place. For product recommendations and suggestions on water flosser products to use, speak with our dentist or look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance on product packaging.
