Do you have questions about water flossers because you’ve been thinking that adding one to your usual dental care routine may be a good plan? However, have you gone without asking, you keep relying on assumptions you’re making, and now you’re wondering what’s factual and what isn’t? No problem! Your Corona dentist is happy to give very helpful answers to common and pressing questions about this often beloved dental hygiene item!

Questions and Answers

Question: I’ve seen that water flossers can produce extremely powerful streams of water. Is this actually safe for my oral health?

Answer: Your Corona dentist reminds you that water flossers produce a variety of stream strengths and come with additional wands. While one level of strength may be too strong for cleaning along your gum tissue, it may be wonderful for cleaning a device like a bridge. In addition, you may customize settings to match your needs.

Question: Should I stop using dental floss and use a water flosser instead?

Answer: No! You should always use dental floss as one part of your dental hygiene (in addition to brushing). Flossing is a very unique way of cleaning your teeth and offers benefits you cannot attain through other means. However, for additional plaque removal, using a water flosser may offer further protection that will become advantageous for your smile health, explains your Corona dentist. So, if you are interested, add it into the mix.

Question: Should I avoid a water flosser if I have braces?

Answer: No! Actually, it’s a very good idea to use a water flosser when you have braces. While you will still be flossing your smile to protect your smile health, water flossers can soften, dislodge, and remove debris and plaque accumulation around brackets, wires, and teeth that may otherwise pose a challenge for you. It’s worth considering!
