We have all heard how important it is to brush and floss each day. However, with so many different products to choose from, how do you know which ones are right for you? To help you answer this question, our team here at Barry E. Malkiel, DDS in Lawrenceville, Georgia, is happy to talk to you about the importance of flossing and how water flossers may be the right tool for you.
Water flossers are very safe and extremely effective when it comes to removing food particles from between your teeth. If you struggle with flossing by hand or have braces that make it hard to floss properly, then a water flosser may be what you are looking for. Water flossers send out pulses of water that hit between your teeth and along your gum line giving you clean and fresh feel.
As a matter of fact, using water flossers regularly have been proven to reduce plaque and help against the war on gum disease, which is why they have finally earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance on many of them. If you are at a high risk of gum disease, or your dentist, Dr. Barry Malkiel has encouraged you to floss but you do not like the string floss, then why not try a water flosser for your oral health care needs?
If you still have questions or would like to find out more about the efficiency of water flossers, then call us today at 770-995-9255 to set up an appointment. Our dental team is proud to talk to you about any of your oral health care questions or needs.
