So who needs a water flosser?
The Person Whose Gums Keep Bleeding
If you have been diagnosed with gum disease by your dentist and have some hard to clean areas that continue to bleed despite good flossing, water flossers can be a great way to clean these problem areas. The dentists offen recommend water flossers to patients with a few areas of persistent gum inflammation, and in many cases the water flossers clean these areas well enough to see a noticeable reduction in inflammation and bleeding, which is the goal of treatment to address gum disease.
The Person Who Has Braces
Water flossers are great for people with braces who tend to get more food particles stuck in their teeth. Not only does that feel gross and annoying, it increases your risk for cavities when you don’t clean them out.
Note: There is cordless water flosser. It works really well and they’re portable. It’s worth asking before you invest in an electric water flosser.
The Person Who Have Dry Mouth
Certain medications and genetics can keep you from producing enough saliva. Saliva naturally cleans your mouth, and prevents sticky plaque from building up on teeth and gums. So dry mouth isn’t just uncomfortable, it can also lead to gum disease and cavities.
A water flosser is an easy way to add moisture to a dry mouth and help to remove sticky plaque due to dry mouth. It’s not a long-term solution, but it’s a good quick fix, and a good way to help remove plaque and food particles that aren’t washed away naturally by saliva.
Stuff Always Gets Stuck In Teeth
Some people just get more food stuck in their teeth than others. And it doesn’t mean you’re a messy eater! It probably has more to do with the shape of your teeth. People with small gaps where their teeth and gums meet are more likely to have that problem.
Food can also get stuck around some dental work like bridges and dental implants. And water flossers can be a big help to clean these harder to reach places.
