Are you looking for new ways to keep your smile clean and healthy? If so, Dr. Eli Janabi with Smile Studio Dental in Falls Church, Virginia, is happy to talk to you about water flossers and how they can improve your oral health.

Water flossers are a dental tool where many are marked with the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This seal is important because it means that any water flossers with this seal have been tested to be safe and effective to help clean your teeth from plaque and bacteria for your family. Water flossers are always a brilliant option for people who have trouble flossing by hand or have had extensive dental work done that makes flossing difficult like braces, dental implants, or dental bridges.

The purpose of flossing is vital to your oral health because food and plaque can nest between your teeth and cause severe cavities and gum disease. To understand the path of cavities, first, they can lead to loss of a tooth, which leads to gum disease, and eventually can lead to bone loss dramatically affecting your facial appearance and oral health.

The use of water flossers is effective, especially for those struggling with threaded floss. However, any floss is better than no floss at all. Depending on your needs, you can find the best way to floss that works for you. If you have questions about your oral health, please call us at 703-982-2222 to set up an appointment today!
