If you struggle to successfully floss your teeth, you probably wish there was another way. Good news: there is! Water flossing is an effective alternative flossing method. Here are some details on how and for whom they best work:

– Water flossers are designed to clean between teeth like traditional dental floss. The key difference is that water flossers do not use thread. Instead, they rely on water jets to clear away debris stuck between the teeth.
– If bridges, crowns, dentures, or braces are obstacles to your cleaning your teeth properly, then water flossers would be the better choice.
– People suffering from disorders with joint pain tend to struggle the most with dental floss. You can switch to an alternative interdental device such as a water flosser, which is better to operate.
– To find the water flosser that works best for your needs, talk to your dentist or look for the products with the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance on the package. The latter denotes that the product has been tested for safety and effectiveness.
