Waterfloss FAQ

Everyone should use a water flosser.

It is a home dental care equipment that employs a stream of variable-pressure pulsing water to remove dental plaque and food residues between teeth and below the gumline, where toothbrushes cannot reach. If people do not clean up after themselves, they will create more harmful bacteria in their mouth.

Especially for people who have braces, bridges, implants, crowns, or periodontal pockets. If you have difficulty using string floss and have dental problems such as poor breath, bleeding gums, gingivitis, periodontal illnesses, and so on, you should try to improve your dental health.

We recommend using the water flosser before brushing your teeth.

It is recommended that you floss your teeth at least once a day; if you wear braces or undergo orthodontic work, you can floss more frequently.

Water flossers, of course, are complements, not replacements for toothbrushes. We must still brush our teeth with toothpaste.

Water flossers are becoming increasingly popular as they are more handy and efficient than traditional string floss, which is difficult to push and can cause gum damage. People who wear braces and have orthodontic or dental procedures may prefer this water flosser, which may be fully charged once and used for approximately one month (2 minutes once a day).


Plaque is a yellowish film that grows on the teeth; if we don't brush and floss on a daily basis, plaque hardens into tartar, which can only be removed by a professional dentist.

Cavities, gum infection, tooth loss, gingivitis, and periodontal disorders can all be caused by plaque and tartar.

Of course, water flossers may effectively remove food particles from between your teeth that toothbrushes cannot. If we do not remove them in a timely manner, it will result in gingivitis, gum inflammation, or infection.

However, we must keep in mind that brushing or flossing after meals should be done 30-60 minutes later. Brushing or flossing immediately after finishing a meal is detrimental to our teeth enamel.

Using a water flosser poses no risks; instead, it has numerous benefits for our dental health.

A water flosser sprays a continuous stream of fresh water between your teeth, eliminating food particles and plaque.

Water flossers effectively remove food particles and plaque between and around your teeth. If you have difficulty using string floss or have braces that prevent you from moving floss between your teeth, water flossing can be a great option.


Water flossers just spray a steady stream of water with forceful pulses to your teeth and gums, but it does not impose as much pressure as string floss. If you push the string floss too hard against the gum tissue, you risk more gum recession. This may cause the floss to penetrate beneath the gumline, resulting in bleeding, gum recession, and potentially gum disease. Wounding the gums can cause ulcers where bacteria can penetrate the gum tissue and cause infection.

Of course, we may traditional string floss as a complement, and when it comes to tartar, hardened plaque, which can only be removed by a professional dentist.

Yes, it is beneficial in the treatment of periodontal disease.

Periodontitis can be treated in a variety of ways, but all require you to practice good oral hygiene at home. Water flossing is a gentle and effective home treatment for periodontal disease.

No. When using a water flosser, simply spray a steady stream of water with pulsation to your teeth and gums; it will not apply as much pressure as string floss and is less likely to damage the tooth enamel.

As a result, water flossers have grown in popularity as a more convenient and efficient alternative to string floss.

We recommend only putting water, filtered water preferred if available, in the water flosser, unless otherwise instructed by your dental care professional.
