Is it necessary to use a dental flosser?
Most people think that a toothbrush is enough to clean their teeth. In fact, this is far from enough, because the toothbrush can only clean about 70% of the surface of the teeth, and the gap between two teeth is only covered by a toothbrush. Those that cannot be cleaned are prone to residues and accumulations of food residues, dental plaque and soft dirt. At this time, auxiliary cleaning tools must be used to help! Both dental floss and water flosser are available, and the dental flosser can make this high-pressure pulsed water column flush to any part of the oral cavity through the nozzle. The impact produced by this high-pressure pulsed water flow is a kind of soft stimulation, not only will not hurt any part of the mouth, but also has the effect of massaging the gums. The dental flosser can use the impact force to flush out the food residues lodged in the gaps between the teeth without causing damage to the gums. Friends who do orthodontics, the dental flosser will be of great help to the brackets and tooth surfaces that are difficult to clean with a toothbrush.
Do I still need to brush my teeth to use a flosser?
Only a toothbrush can maintain the basic cleanliness of the teeth. Plaque needs to be removed by physical friction, and the dental flosser can clean hidden parts such as subgingival, pits and fissures, and tooth decay, so the dental flosser cannot replace a toothbrush. Flossers and toothbrushes are complementary.
Bleeding gums with flossers?
Some users may have bleeding gums when using it for the first time. If the gums bleed when flossed in the correct way, it means that the gums are inflamed, and the floss has touched the surface of the inflamed gums, causing bleeding. There is no need to be afraid of this situation. You should continue to use dental floss to clean your teeth thoroughly, so as to facilitate the removal of factors that cause gum inflammation (soft scale, dental plaque, etc.) on the teeth. Causes of bleeding and timely treatment.
If you are not used to it, it is recommended to start using the low-end mode and switch to other modes after getting used to it.
Do dental flossers widen the gaps between teeth?
Normal use is definitely not! Either dental floss or water floss. The teeth themselves have a certain degree of physiological mobility, like "tumblers", standing in their own independent alveolar sockets. When the dental floss passes between the two teeth with normal force, the teeth will appear invisible to the naked eye. With a small movement, it will return to its "job" with the removal of the dental floss. It feels like the gap between the teeth is getting bigger because it washes away some of the plaque and tartar attached to the teeth, exposing the teeth and gums themselves.
The correct operation steps of the flosser?
- Open the water tank and fill it with warm water, it is recommended not to exceed 50°
- Select the nozzle and insert it into the fuselage
- Choose the right gear
- Insert the nozzle into your mouth and lean forward toward the sink
- Get close to the gap between the two teeth, aim at the gap between the teeth that needs to be cleaned, press the switch to ensure that the water flow is perpendicular to the rinsing part, and at the same time open the mouth slightly, move the nozzle along the gum line in turn until all the gaps between the teeth are cleaned.
