If you tend to get confused and overwhelmed when using a water flosser, our My Dental Care team is more than happy to give you the instructions you need to be successful! Water flossers in Fishers, Indiana, can be extremely convenient and easy to use once you get the hang of it. Then, once you use this tool to clean your smile once a day, you will have the top-notch oral health you deserve. So, if you want to properly use this oral hygiene tool, please follow the provided instructions:

-Step 1: Fill the flosser’s tank with lukewarm water. Then, put the tank back on the base and clip the lid in place.

-Step 2: Select the type of flosser tip you would like to use and press it firmly into the handle. Then, choose the specific amount of pressure you would like the flosser to produce.

-Step 3: Lean over the sink and put the tip of the flosser in your mouth.

-Step 4: Turn the flosser on and close the lips around the wand. This will help prevent splashing.

-Step 5: Start flossing with the back teeth, aiming the tip just above the gumline at a 90-degree angle. Move from tooth to tooth with this same process.

-Step 6: When you have flossed between each tooth, turn the flosser off and remove the tip by pressing the tip eject button.
