Did you know there is a new and even fun way to clean between your teeth and along the gumline while wearing braces? That’s with the use of a water flosser! Water flossers are high-tech and handy tools that can wash your smile and boost your oral health while you are straightening your pearly whites. To help you know all about water flossers in Orem, Utah, our orthodontist, Dr. Ben Frandsen, is happy to share some water flosser facts, which are:
-Water flossers are a wand that is connected to a water tank. When you turn it on, water sprays to the tip. All you need to do is place the tip to the smile and let it wash away all the bacteria and food particles.
-Water flossers have different pressure levels for your comfort.
-Water flossers can make quite the mess if you don’t use them properly, but you should have a clean routine if you just close your lips around the wand.
-Water flossers can clean the smile by removing food particles from between the teeth and along the gumline.
-Water flossers can make cleaning the smile when you have braces much easier.
