If you keep on trying to get into the habit of flossing your teeth every time you brush but you just can’t seem to get into it, consider getting a water flosser. As an easy, safe, and effective way of ridding your teeth of nasty food and germs, water flossers can help keep your teeth as healthy as possible. By using pressurized water, water flossers work to shoot water in between your teeth and act just as traditional dental floss. If you are in the market for a water flosser, consider looking for one that contains the following things.
- Multiple Spouts
The best thing about most water flossers is that they contain multiple spouts, which means that you and your spouse, or you and someone else can each use the flosser. Additionally, if you have a house full of kids, you know just how expensive life can get. However, by having one flosser with multiple spouts, everyone in your house can use the same flosser without you having to spend too much unnecessary money.
- Multiple Settings
Additionally, it’s nice to be able to control the amount of pressure you are getting with your water flosser. When shopping around for one, look for one that has multiple settings— not just on and off— that way you can control the amount of pressure you are getting at all times. This is especially nice to have when multiple people are using it because not everyone likes their pressure to be the same.
Another consideration to make when searching for a water flosser is it’s portability. If you are someone who travels a lot, then you are going to want to choose a water flosser that is portable. Whereas if you stay at home a lot and are looking for something fairly basic, a traditional stationary water flosser should work just fine.
Before you go out and buy a water flosser, make sure that you check off the things listed above. To learn more or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Nik Zalavadia, contact our office today!
