Most patients know that brushing is not sufficient in removing all the plaque and food particles from their smiles. However, flossing remains one of the least-utilized resources for dental hygiene. To help you properly care for your smile and increase its longevity, Dr. Smith and Dr. Carrell offer several oral care products, including the Waterpik® Water Flosser.
Gum disease affects half of all American adults, and this is due in large part to a lack of proper flossing. Many patients choose not to floss because string floss products are time consuming and difficult to use. The Waterpik Water Flosser provides a simple and quick alternative to traditional flossing methods.
By directing the Waterpik between your teeth and along your gumline, you can more effectively improve your oral health than by using string floss. Water flossing only takes a minute or so to remove bacteria and food debris from between the teeth and below the gum line. Our dentists can provide you with a Waterpik Water Flosser when you visit the office of Bruce W. Smith DDS.
