Can water flossers replace traditional floss? A water flosser is an interdental device that is built to supplement your oral health care treatment using an alternative oral health care treatment method of cleaning between teeth. Water flossers work by using a unique device that can spray beams of water at teeth, rather than a thread to rub between teeth.

Listed below are a few standard truths about water flossers:

– Water flossers with the ADA Seal of Acceptance have been shown to effectively rinse away plaque buildup and have also been shown to aid in the prevention of gum disease.
– Water flossers, like traditional dental floss, are used to clean between teeth, except the difference is that water flossers use a stable beam of water to wash away food particles and debris.
– Water flossers may aid individuals with oral treatment services such as orthodontic aligners, dental bridges, dentures, and dental crowns.
– Flossing with water flossers is easier than using traditional floss, and thus it is highly recommended for patients that struggle or have difficulty using traditional flossing methods.
