Does threaded floss hurt your fingers or hands? Perhaps you are tired of dealing with the long string of dental floss. If this sounds like you, then consider trying water flossers as a way to floss your teeth each day. To help you learn more about water flossers, Dr. Robert Jackson with Jackson Dental in Carrollton, Texas, is happy to report more about them for you.

Water flossers are a unique device marked with the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance on them. That means that any water flossers with this seal have been tested to be safe and productive to help clean your teeth from plaque and bacteria. Water flossers are an easy option for people who have difficulty flossing by hand or have had dental work that makes flossing difficult such as implants, braces, or dental bridges.

The key factor about flossing and why it is essential to your oral health is because food and plaque can get between your teeth and cause cavities which creates a downward spiral of problems. Cavities can lead to the loss of a tooth, which then leads to gum disease, and ultimately can lead to bone loss dramatically affecting your oral health.
