Flossing every day before you brush is an important part of your daily dental care routine. Flossing removes the stuck-on bacteria that sits between your teeth and below your gum line.
Brushing alone can't stop the buildup up of plaque in these areas. Though flossing is an important part of your dental care, you may find it tiresome. Fortunately, there's an alternative to traditional string floss.
Recent dental innovation has brought a new method of flossing to the market. Water flossing utilizes the cleansing power of water to dislodge plaque and food from your teeth. Water flossers used to be expensive, but now, they are quite affordable. Compared to traditional floss, water flossers boast many benefits.
Water Flossing with Arthritis
People suffering from arthritis may find it difficult to floss properly. This is partly because traditional floss is hard to maneuver around each tooth. Trying to fit traditional floss into the tight spaces of your mouth can even be painful with arthritis. A water flosser allows arthritis sufferers to reach all of their teeth without the strain. Water flossers can help arthritis sufferers get a better and quicker clean compared to traditional floss.
Water Flossing is Gentler
We've all been there. You're flossing your teeth while you're groggy in the morning and you accidently slip the floss a little too hard between your teeth. Next thing you know, your gums are bleeding everywhere. Besides being painful, cutting your gums with traditional floss is bad for your oral health. Open wounds in your mouth are vulnerable to bacterial infection. With a water flosser, you're able to gently floss between your gums without worrying about cutting yourself.
