What is the primary function of a water flosser? A water flosser is an interdental device that is created to supplement your oral health care treatment using an alternative oral health care treatment method of cleaning between teeth. Water flossers work by using a unique apparatus that can spray beams of water at teeth, rather than a thread to scrub between teeth.

Listed below are a few common facts about water flossers:

– Flossing with water flossers is easier than using threaded floss, and thus it is highly recommended for individuals that struggle or have difficulty using traditional flossing methods.
– Water flossers, like traditional dental floss, are used to clean between teeth, except the difference is that water flossers use a steady beam of water to wash away harmful acids and debris.
– Water flossers may benefit people with oral treatment services such as orthodontic aligners, dental bridges, dentures, and dental crowns.
– Water flossers with the ADA Seal of Acceptance have been shown to accurately wash away plaque buildup and have also been shown to aid in the prevention of gum disease.
