Can Water Flossers Clean between Teeth?

Can water flossers clean between teeth? A water flosser is an interdental device that is constructed 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 tool that can spray beams of water at teeth, rather than a thread to scrub between teeth.

Listed below are a few distinct facts about water flossers:

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