Have you ever wanted to brush and floss your teeth and easily as possible without putting undue stress on your joints? New age tools such as electric toothbrushes and water flossers have been proven extremely easy to operate and are safe and effective to use.

Is a water flosser as effective as flossing thread? It depends. Here are a few factors to consider about water flossers:

– Water flossers are designed to clean between teeth like regular dental floss and rely on water jets to wash away debris stuck between teeth.
– In many cases, if dental floss is hindered by previous or ongoing dental treatments such as aligners, bridges, crowns, or dentures, then water flossers would be the better choice.
– When picking the water flosser that will work best for you, consult your dentist or look for the products that feature the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.
– Individuals with joint pain tend to struggle the most with dental floss, so instead switch to a substitute interdental tool such as a water flosser, which is easier to operate.
