If you’re not sure whether to use water flossers or dental floss, you’re not alone. Many people are in the same predicament. To help you, our dentists, Drs. Moore and Moore, are happy to compare the two products and give you the information you need to make the best decision for your smile.

Dental floss
Dental floss has always been an effective tool when cleaning the smile. It can eradicate bacteria, plaque, and food particles from the teeth and gum line. Fortunately, it can deeply clean the spaces of the smile the toothbrush cannot clean. It can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease by removing plaque regularly. The only drawback to this oral hygiene tool is that it can damage your gums if you improperly use it.

Water flossers
Water flossers are high-tech tools that can also clean your smile. They can remove harmful substances from your teeth and gums (like plaque and bacteria) to keep your oral health in tip-top shape. If the tool is properly used, it can clean your teeth and gums just like floss can. However, if it’s improperly used, it can fail to remove all of the plaque between your teeth and along the gums.

Our dental team will be happy to help you, even if it’s just by teaching you more about flossing in Florence, Kentucky. We look forward to hearing from and helping you!
