Difficultly Brushing? Try Water Flossing!

shutterstock_1306907185

Does the thought of brushing bring pangs of fear? Do you suffer from arthritis, struggling to brush your teeth for the recommended amount of time twice every day?

You're in luck! The answer might lie in using a water-flossing tool.

A water-flossing product, also known as a water pick, is a handheld device that sprays water into your mouth, reaching all those hard-to-reach crevices that the bristles of your brush can't. It can be a nice substitute for flossing, letting you skip the pain of fighting with dental floss and get that plaque and food debris out of your teeth.

So, if you're interested in using a water flosser, here are some with the American Dental Association's approval to get you started!

Philips Sonicare AirFloss, AirFloss Pro and AirFloss Ultra

With this brand of water flosser, you can use a number of "bursts" to clean the spaces in between your teeth. It has a 14-day battery life, so you won't have to worry about recharging it on a daily basis.

Waterpik Battery-Operated Water Flossers

This flosser, which uses batteries, eliminates the need to look for a plug while on the go. Also, this particular flosser has two "bursts" settings and claims to only need to be used once per day. However, you should be consistently using a flosser twice a day after each brushing.

Waterpik Sonic-Fusion Toothbrush/Flosser

This flosser is great if you want to save time! It offers three modes of brushing: brushing your teeth, flossing them and a combination of both. You can even add mouthwash into your brushing routine, reducing the need to do it once you're done brushing and flossing your teeth. Just be sure to plug it back in and allow the brush to air dry after each use.

Waterpik Water Flosser

While it is not as versatile as the Sonic-Fusion, it does rise to the challenge. Also, it is cheaper than its fancier cousin, so your bank account won't take a hit. The tip rotates 360 degrees, in order to access all the hard-to-reach areas of your gums.

Waterpik Whitening Water Flosser

The whitening water flosser is great at sending a nice stream of water in between your teeth in addition to whitening them. With its whitening agent that doesn't contain any harsh bleaching agents that will damage your teeth, you can floss with ease and reassurance of a brighter smile.

The next time you go through your morning routine of caring for your oral health, try these water flossers for a new way to get in the spaces between your teeth! Ready to make an appointment with Dr. Buck? Give us a call at 425-409-2291.

DR. BUCK'S PHILOSOPHY

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
