Do you know what water flossers are? If so, have you ever tried one? Water flossers have become a fun and fantastic way to floss your teeth using water. Because of their popularity, they are quickly becoming one of the most popular dental tools to have in the home.

Our dentists encourage you to floss your teeth every day to keep your smile healthy. That is why our team at Steven Rattner DDS in College Park, Maryland, is happy to share with you some facts on water flossers.

Here are some simple facts on water flossers:

– Water flossers can clean between your teeth and deep along your gumline using a gentle beam of water that can clean the areas your toothbrush can’t reach and wash away plaque, food particles, and bacteria.
– The water to floss your teeth is an alternative to the traditional string of dental floss that goes around your fingers to floss your teeth for those with coordination concerns or don’t like dental string.
– Water flossers can also be useful for people with orthodontic aligners, dentures, dental crowns, and dental bridges. As a result, water flossers are popular to help keep your oral health clean and in tip-top shape.

As you can see, water flossers can help your oral health stay in healthy condition when used daily. It is important to note that water flossers are not an alternative to brushing.
