Different flossing tools

“It looks like you’ve been flossing your teeth too much!”  Said no dentist ever.  We all know we should floss daily.  But we think up excuses about why flossing is just too tiresome.  It’s too time consuming, too hard and much too tedious to possibly be worth it.  But we couldn’t be more wrong. Flossing daily prevents gingivitis and more advanced stages of gum diseases.  Plus it helps to keep breath fresh and prevent cavities by removing food particles, bacteria and plaque from in-between teeth.

Incorporating antiseptic mouthwash is an easy addition – pour some liquid from the bottle, take a sip and swish around in your mouth for 30 seconds!

Five Reasons You Need to Be Using a Water Flosser

It’s simple.  Multiple studies compare water flossing to string floss and the findings are consistent.  Water flossing is superior.  Especially when it comes to inflammation and gingivitis. One study showed that using water flossing reduced bleeding by 93% and was up to 52% more effective at reducing gingivitis than string floss.  And Waterpik are the goto brand.

In this article we give you five great reasons why you should switch to, or start, water flossing.

Let’s start by being honest.  Many of us tend to cringe when the dentist asks if we’ve been flossing.  Nobody wants to lie.  But the truth is…. lots of us just don’t do it.  Even though it’s good for us!

Typical excuses?

Flossing takes too long.

It’s awkward to do.

It doesn’t feel nice

It smells

The floss frays or splits

…and so on.

But the fact is, much of what we eat and drink stays in our mouths in places your toothbrush can’t reach.  Therefore, it’s important to add flossing to your daily dental hygiene routine. So, you want fresh breath and a winning smile, right?  But don’t have the time, patience or dexterity with the waxy thread?  The answer is water flossing!

Here’s why.
