Have you heard about water flossing? If not, then you have come to the right blog! Water flossers are a new dental tool that can help your smile stay clean and fresh. Our dentist, Dr. Faith Cousins with Faith Cousins DDS in Silver Spring, Maryland, cares about your oral health, which is why we have provided you with this necessary information on water flossing.

Everyone knows the significance of brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing every day. Despite that, many people skip flossing or struggle with traditional floss string as it hurts their gums or fingers as they grip it. Water flossers remove the need for string because it uses a steady beam of water pressure to clean deep between your teeth and deep along your gum line. Water flossers are simple to use, which makes them great for children or people who struggle using traditional floss.

Another added bonus to water flossers is they are easy to use if you have braces, because of the ease with which water pressure can get in those hard-to-reach places or brackets on your teeth. The American Dental Association have given many water flossers their Seal of Acceptance, which means it has been established safe and effective at preventing cavities and fighting against gum disease. It is vital to remember that flossing does not replace the need to brush. The most crucial thing to remember when it comes to any flossing tool is that it’s always better to floss than never to floss at all.

In conclusion, water flossers can be effective as a flossing tool to use each day. If you have questions about your oral health or would like to come in for a six-month checkup, please call us today at 301-589-2714. Our dental team is happy to help you and your smile.
