Water Flossers vs Dental Floss

Posted .

If you’re trying to decide whether to floss with dental floss or a water flosser, then you have come to the right blog. Our dentist, Dr. Avi Mizrachi, is happy to tell you all about water flossers and dental floss so you can choose which product is right for you.

Dental floss
Dental floss has always been a great tool to clean the teeth. It can remove the plaque, food particles, and bacteria between the teeth and along the gumline. It can help you have strong and healthy teeth and gums. The only disadvantage of dental floss is that it can damage your gums if you’re not careful using it.

Water flossers
Water flossers are a handy tool when it comes to washing the smile. It can clean the crevices of your mouth and help you prevent dental issues. This oral hygiene tool can also remove plaque from the teeth and gum line, but sometimes, if you don’t use it correctly, it doesn’t remove as much plaque as floss does. However, this tool can help with reducing gingivitis as well as gingival bleeding.

As you can see, both tools are very effective at cleaning the smile. So, it’s best to talk to your dentist about the tool he recommends.
