Each year new products arise and it’s easy to feel scared to venture out from our normal routine. That is why, our team here at Catron Family Dentistry in Stilwell, Oklahoma, is happy to talk to you about water flossers and how they might be a better alternative for your oral health care needs than traditional floss.

For starters, water flossers are both safe and useful when it comes to removing food particles from between your teeth. If you struggle with flossing by hand each day or have had unique treatments like braces that make it hard to floss properly, then a water flosser may be what you are looking for. Water flossers work by transferring out pulses of water that hit between your teeth and along your gum line.

Using water flossers daily have been proven to lower plaque and help against the fight on gum disease, which is why they have finally earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. If you know you are at a high risk of gum disease, or your dentist, Dr. Chad Catron has encouraged you to floss but you do not like the string floss, then try a water flosser for your oral health.

If you still have many questions or would like to learn more about the effectiveness of water flossers, then call us right away at 918-696-4200 to set up an appointment. Our kind-hearted dental team is happy to talk to you about any of your oral health care questions or concerns.
