Benefits of Using an Air Flosser Between Your Teeth

Posted on 2/25/2019 by College Hill Dental
Benefits of Using an Air Flosser Between Your TeethWe always tell our patients that flossing is an important part of their oral hygiene regimen. Using traditional floss is handy because it can be easily carried with you so you can floss at work or any time you eat a meal and are away from your toothbrush.

It is also the best method because it scrapes your teeth, which better helps to remove plaque. But that doesn't mean other methods aren't beneficial because they are.

The two most popular alternatives are the water flosser and the air flosser. Both are electronic and require a power source such as batteries or an electrical outlet. The water flosser also requires a water source. It is not cordless as the air flosser is.

Is It Still Effective without Using Water?
The air flosser has many benefits and is effective in cleaning the spaces between your teeth. One of the cool features of the air flosser is that it can get you directly where you need to be. As a matter of fact, if you like to use a mouse with your computer, you'll love the air flosser.

It has a point-and-click design. When you use the air flosser you place it between the teeth you want to floss. It has a guide that keeps you on the space between your teeth. Once you are in place and ready to floss, you click and a blast of air remove the plaque. This system is designed for speed. Once you get used to it you should be able to clean your whole mouth in 30 seconds.

Other benefits of the air flosser are the portability. It is about the size of an electric toothbrush. It is cordless and uses rechargeable batteries. That makes the power basically a one time cost, until you have to recharge. It is also less messy than a water flosser because there are no hoses to deal with. Contact us if you have further questions.
