It’s extremely important to deeply clean your smile each day, but many tend to avoid flossing. If you are one of these people, it’s time to commit to flossing! Flossing helps remove the harmful substances in your smile because if they remain, you will have a high chance of becoming a victim of tooth decay and gum disease. We care for you and your smile, and we strongly recommend flossing each day. However, we understand that flossing can be a bit challenging at times, which is why we suggest using a water flosser.

Water flossers are small, wand-like tools that fit perfectly in your hand. These tools spray pulses of water from the tips of the wands in a strong and forceful manner, but they are not dangerous. The flosser will deeply clean your smile in an easy and comfortable way—all you need to do is press the tip of the wand against the crevices of your smile and let it do its job. As it sprays, it will remove the food particles and plaque that are there. This will help you reduce your chances of developing a dangerous dental disease or problem.

Please remember that if you do use a water flosser each day, you also need to brush your teeth and rinse your mouth with mouthwash. It’s important that you brush, floss, and rinse altogether. Do your best to brush twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, floss once a day with a water flosser or a product of your choice, and rinse your mouth daily with fluoride rinse or another beneficial type of mouthwash. It’s also vital that you attend your dental checkups every six months.
