Do you wish there was a way to clean your teeth without the use of sharp picks or floss? If so, we have exciting news for you! Water flossers have become popular because of the ease of use and success at removing unwanted plaque from between your teeth. To help you understand more about water flossers, Dr. Imeni here at Smile Design - Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Durham, North Carolina, is happy to provide you with more intel on water flossers.

Water flossers are an effective tool marked with the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This means that any water flossers with this seal have been tested to be safe and effective to help clean your teeth from plaque and bacteria. Water flossers are an excellent option for people who have trouble flossing by hand or have had dental work that makes flossing difficult such as braces, implants, or dental bridges.

The reason flossing is essential to your oral health is because food and plaque can get between your teeth and cause cavities. Cavities can lead to the loss of a tooth, which leads to gum disease, and eventually can lead to bone loss dramatically affecting your oral health.
