If you are suffering from poor oral health, it may be linked to your oral hygiene daily routines. Even if you are brushing and flossing on a daily basis, you may not be doing so accurately. If you wish to substitute your dental floss for an alternative interdental cleaner, consider the use of a water flosser. Water flossers are highly effective for cleaning between teeth just as regular floss does. Further benefits of water flossers include the following:

– When selecting a water flosser to add to your oral health care repertoire, look for products that feature the American Dental Association’s ADA Seal of Acceptance. The seal is awarded to products that meet the highest standards of safety and effectiveness.

– Did you know that water flossers are also highly effective for aiding in the prevention of gum disease?

– Previous treatments can hinder interdental cleaning. This can include dental crowns, dental and dentures. If these restorations are in effect in your mouth, dental floss may not work as intended. Instead, try using a water flosser.

– The ease of use of water flossers is often one of their key benefits as they can easily clean between teeth with a steady stream of water.

If you would like to schedule an appointment to discuss your possible water flosser or other interdental treatment with Dr. J. Kenneth Carver and our team at Kingsport Dentistry, please call 423-247-5175 to stop by our dentist office in Kingsport, Tennessee.
