Are you having a difficulty at flossing using a thread-like material? Then a water flosser may be a useful alternative.

A water flosser is a portable tool that aids in removing plaque and food debris in between your teeth. The first step before using the device is to fill it with water. Put it in your mouth just above the gum line, and then turn it on. A constant stream of water will be released from the flosser to gently clean in between those hard-to-reach areas.

If you have problems using dental floss, think about getting a water flosser. A water flosser could be useful if you have braces or dental procedures like permanent or fixed bridges. They may be beneficial for those who have severe dry mouths or periodontal disease.

What are the benefits of using water flossers?

1. They are less abrasive.  Compared to regular floss, water flossers are milder. They are less likely to cause gum irritation.

2. They Make Gums Health Better.  Plaque and food particles can be swiftly and easily removed from difficult-to-reach areas with a water flosser. You can avoid gingivitis and other gum-related problems by cleaning these difficult-to-reach regions.

3. They work great with braces. If you wear braces, Invisalign, or any other orthodontic appliance, using a standard flosser to clean your teeth will be extremely challenging. A water flosser’s jet stream may easily clean your teeth behind the wires and rinse out any particles between the teeth.

4. They provide thorough cleaning. Particularly for those with a history of gum disease, dentists advise water flossers. The water flosser is able to clean your teeth deeply by penetrating the periodontal pockets and removing any plaque or food between the teeth.

After 25 years of trying to find a good dentist in KL have finally found one that is well equiped, knowledgable, skilled and good value. Lovely staff. The only downside is the parking but if you park ay MainPlace and walk across then it’s easy. Update 2022…I am still using this excellent dentist as they remain the best I have experienced over the past 26 years… Dentists, nurses, reception and equipment all top notch… Highly recommended.
