Does an injury, medical condition or dental appliance make it difficult for you to effectively floss your teeth every day? Do you ever wish there was another way? Good news: there is! Try a water flosser. Here are some basic facts:

– Water flossers will clean between teeth like traditional dental floss can, but they don’t use thread. Instead, water flossers rely on high powered water jets to clear away debris stuck between your teeth.
– If your dental floss is hindered by previous or ongoing dental appliance like braces, a water flosser may be the best choice for you.
– Individuals with joint pain tend to struggle with flossing. Instead, switch to an alternative interdental device like a water flosser, which is easier to operate.
– When using the water flosser that works best for you, talk to your dentist or search for products that feature the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance.
