If you are ready to seek out of highly effective interdental cleaning tools, speak with your dentist about product recommendations and suggestions. Your dentist can assess your oral health care needs and determine which products are right for you.
Generally, a reliable flossing tool will be needed to clean between all teeth without wearing out or causing contamination. Two highly effective options that you should consider are threaded dental flossers and water flossers. Whereas threaded flossers use strands of thread to clean between teeth, a water flosser uses a beam of water to help spray out any debris that may be present between your teeth.
Your oral health care often depends on making sure that your dental floss is working as intended. Always use a strand that is roughly 18 inches in length and wrap it around a finger on each hand. This will help prevent recontamination, as it not recommended to use the same section of a strand between more than one tooth. Once your flossing session is over, throw away the strand and use a new piece for each subsequent session. Caring for your teeth through the use of dental floss will keep your smile safe from plaque buildup in between teeth.
If you have never seen a water flosser before, it is a tool that is designed to work exactly as you would think it would. It shoots a super concentrated beam of water directly into your mouth to blast away debris that may be present. Water flossers are very easy to operate and tend to be extremely popular amongst the older generations because they require less physical exertion and movements. If you have any kind of muscle ailments or joint pain when using traditional floss, switch to a water flosser.
