Can a Water Flosser Replace Traditional Floss?

May 21 2018

Have you heard of a water flosser?

A water flosser is a tool that uses a stream of water to clean away food and germs from our teeth, but many people wonder if a water flosser can be used instead of traditional floss. Here is what Dr. Sato has to say about water flossers and traditional floss.

Despite its benefits, we recommend a Waterpik as a supplement to traditional flossing, not a replacement. Traditional floss tends to clean tight contacts between teeth better than a water flosser, and, so, is still an essential part of a complete home care routine. We recommend flossing, water flossing, brushing, and rinsing as a regular routine.

If you are due for a cleaning or have any questions about the health of your teeth, please feel free to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sato in Dayton, OH.
