Although water flossers are designed for maximum effect, it is important to note that they are often used as a substitute for traditional dental floss, but should not be used as a replacement for traditional brushing. Water flossers are designed to clean in between teeth.
A water flosser works by spraying a deep and steady stream of water at your teeth to easily clean between teeth and wash away debris and food particles. When choosing which water flosser will best suit your oral health care needs, look for the products that feature the ADA Seal of Acceptance given out by the American Dental Association for those products that clearly demonstrate an excellence in safety and effectiveness.
