Most people do not floss once a day, but there are alternative options for you. While flossing with dental floss is a great option, there are other ways for you to remove food and bacteria from between your teeth to help promote your oral health.

Our dentist, Dr. Michael Kim, wants you to keep your mouth healthy between visits at our office. That’s why our team at Michael Kim, DDS in Mequon, Wisconsin, want you to know a bit more about water flossers.

Water flossers are a tool that you can use to keep your gums healthy. They take a hand held device that helps remove food from between teeth using a steady pressurized water stream. This can be a great option for people with dental work such as braces or bridges. Water flossing is also a great tool for people that have a difficult time holding traditional string floss.

An important thing to remember with water flossers is that they are only a tool. Just like owning a brush doesn’t mean you automatically have improved oral health, but you must use it at least twice a day for the best results. The same is true with water flossers. To get the best results from a water flosser, you need to use it at least once a day for the best results.
