3 Ways Your Mouth Could Benefit from Power Flossers
Posted on 3/10/2018 by Brandon Cooley
The advancement of technology nowadays is truly amazing. Even with dental oral hygiene, new products have been developed for the proper cleaning and care of teeth and gums. One of these advancements is the power flosser.
The groundbreaking technology used for power flossers was created to fill the gap for patients who find that dental floss is not effective for cleaning in between their teeth. Here we have gathered three benefits for patients who have been using power flossers.
With the use of traditional dental floss, gums are often irritated and wounded, leading to inflammation. Power flossers, on the other hand, have the ability to clean between the teeth without the strain caused by the traditional dental flosses. With a power flosser, a quick burst of air and water drops are released to release the biofilm stuck between teeth.
Periodontitis is a gum infection that is harmful to the soft tissue. It also damages the supporting bone structures of your teeth. Periodontitis can instigate loosening of teeth that can lead to tooth loss.
Power flossers can be very effective in ridding the mouth of harmful bacteria, because of the pressure it releases, it is able to reach beneath gum lines. Properly cleaning of the mouth will promote oral health and the prevention of periodontitis.
A Safer Way to Floss
Some people have partial dentures, braces, and dental implants. By flossing with a traditional dental floss, there is a danger for the string to get caught in any of these orthodontia structures.
With a use of a power flosser, you will not need to concern yourself with this issue, it can do its job safely by going around things inside your mouth.
