Are you aware that water flossers are considered so effective, that a few brands and products have even been given the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance? Seek out water flossers that are ADA-approved to guarantee that your mouth gets the true clean it deserves. The seal not only promised that the product has passed rigorous testing procedures for safety, but also that is has held up under the strictest of tests and examination to prove that the product is effective and will work properly. With ADA-approved water flossers, they will effectively clean between teeth as intended

For some people, flossing by hand with threaded floss can be difficult or ineffective. Furthermore, elderly people are much more likely to benefit from switching to water flossers. In addition, people with previous dental procedures such as braces, dental bridges, dental crowns, and dentures may struggle to reach all areas of their teeth effectively with threaded floss and should also consider switching to water flossers for their routine flossing habits.

Water flossers are highly effective interdental cleaners that clean between teeth using a steady stream of water to wash away any harmful bacteria. They have even been clinically shown to effectively and safely remove plaque and help aid in the prevention of tooth decay and cavities. Water flossers are also highly effective in the prevention of periodontal disease, also known as gum disease.
