There is no more natural way than to clean your mouth with a water flosser. When using a water flosser, no other products are used and you are simply using the power of water to keep your mouth bacteria-free. OptiSmile offers several products for this purpose.
These are the advantages of a water flosser
A water flosser is sometimes also called a mouth wash. The word alone evokes a fresh association. By thoroughly cleaning your mouth with a powerful jet of water, you give your teeth, molars and gums a nice 'shower', as it were. And the best part is, you can do it without adding toothpaste, mouthwash or other substances. The advantage of a water flosser is in the automatic technique of the device. The electric water flosser makes sure that about 1400 powerful water jets per minute are sprayed into your mouth. This removes food residues, plaque and bacteria, without you even having to apply any force! This lowers the barrier to flossing, making it easier to incorporate this method into your oral care routine.
Does a water flosser hurt sensitive gums?
Of course it can always be sensitive to floss in areas where you have gum problems. After all, we don't talk about 'sensitive gums' for nothing! But it won't hurt when you use a water flosser correctly. Not at all: the purpose of a water flosser is to clean your gums, teeth and molars thoroughly without causing damage. This can be different when using a toothpick or flosser. For example, pushing too hard can cause gums to bleed and cause pain. A water flosser prevents this.
Can I brush less if I use a water flosser?
No, a water flosser is not a replacement for a toothbrush. Whether you use a manual or an electric toothbrush, a water flosser is meant to complement brushing. Dentists and dental hygienists strongly recommend daily flossing to prevent plaque and keep the mouth bacteria-free and fresh.
