Water Flossing Can Give You Better Oral Health Than You Had in the Past

Water Flossing National Dental Douglaston NY 11362
Flossing is a great way to improve your dental health. It is advisable to floss around 5 minutes after eating a meal to take away the specks of food.

If that is not practicable, flossing before brushing your teeth is a great way to ensure that your brushing session is as efficient and as painless as possible.

Flossing can be quite enjoyable since we have flosses that taste like mint, but more recently a new interesting concept has started to gain traction. That trend is the use of a water flosser.

What Is Water Flossing And How Does It Benefit My Teeth?

Water flossing is basically using a stream of water to floss your teeth. Compared to the traditional flossing that uses a string to take out specks of food, a water stream will be less irritating for your teeth and gums while taking out plaque and bacteria at the same time.

This also makes your mouth wetter compared to flossing using strings, and this makes it a great activity to do before brushing, since the toothpaste will work faster in a wet mouth.

Studies actually show that water flossing is 51 percent more effective than traditional flossing at reducing or preventing gingivitis or gum disease. It is also twice more effective at reducing the bleeding from the gums and is 29 percent more effective at removing plaque that conventional flossing.

Since water flossing is easy to use and does not irritate the mouth and teeth, children would be more motivated to take care of their dental health. Water flossing can prevent gum diseases and remove plaque, and is in fact better than conventional flossing.

If you have any questions about water and conventional flossing, or just any inquiries about your dental health in general, drop by at our clinic and talk to us so that we can find ways on how to make your dental health better and your smiles wider.

"My wife and I lived in New York for a few years before moving to Colorado. When we were there, our one and only dentist was Dr. Fischler at National Dental! I highly recommend his work, and if we're ever back that way, we'll make sure to stop in!"
~ Keith M.

"I have never had an issue with the staff. Everyone here is very friendly, which is extremely helpful when visiting the dentist. It makes for a much less stressful experience!"
~ Jenna P.
"I have not been to the dentist in over 20 years because of an extremely bad experience when I was a child. I HAD to go recently after I cracked a tooth! Dr. Fischler is so nice and works very quickly. He explains everything as he does it, and the entire procedure was 100% pain free. I couldn't believe it!"
~ Natalie D.
