Frustrated With Flossing? Try Waterpik®!
FLOSSING IS A CRUCIAL element of our daily oral hygiene routine. A toothbrush simply cannot reach the plaque and food particles stuck between our teeth, so we need to floss to get at it. Simple brushing is even less effective on its own for those with braces, which introduce countless new hard-to-reach crevices where bacteria can hide.
As necessary as flossing is, it can still seem like a hassle at times. That’s why we’re so excited that old-fashioned flossing isn’t the only option. One of our favorite alternatives to traditional floss is the Waterpik® Water Flosser, the first powered interdental cleaner to earn the American Dental Association’s seal of approval.
How Waterpik Compares
Our patients LOVE their Waterpik Water Flossers! Waterpik Water Flossers are like power washers for your teeth. Water Flossers are especially good for those non-flossers out there, although we still recommend actual floss every day, as well. Water Flossers are especially good for people with braces. Food gets trapped around all that hardware. A Waterpik Water Flosser knocks all that food and debris away! People with a lot of dental work ie bridges, implants, crowns, fillings, etc. also benefit from Water Flossers.
Watch the video below to see how the Waterpik Water Flosser gives you a cleaner, healthier smile than brushing alone:
