Did you know that interdental spaces take up approximately 40% of the surface of your teeth? Elevate your oral hygiene and enjoy showing off your beautiful, healthy smile! A so-called water flosser or oral irrigator perfectly cleans interdental spaces, removes residual plaque, massages the gums and can be used for cleaning braces or tooth implants. Discover other benefits of oral irrigators and prevent cavities as well as bad breath!
A water flosser is a dental device that uses the principle of a controlled stream of water and microbubbles, or irrigation. The water stream carefully cleans hard-to-reach areas from food residue, bacteria and plaque, all without disturbing the surface of your teeth or gums. Microbubbles then reach under the line of the gums where they destroy harmful bacteria.
When shopping for a water flosser, it’s important to consider its use, required water pressure, design (how much space it will take up) and additional functions of the irrigator jet that can make your daily routine easier.
It’s up to you what exactly you’ll use your oral irrigator for. Do you want to mainly focus on the cleaning of interdental spaces, or do you want to combat gingivitis and periodontitis?
How to choose an oral irrigator that will be perfect for your bathroom or your travel bag? The size affects how many settings the device has and how much water pressure it uses.
Cleaning your mouth with an oral irrigator will be more effective if you do it for at least one minute, twice a day.
