Water flossers are extremely beneficial; however, they can also be extremely tricky, especially because they are high-tech and different oral hygiene tools. So, if you have a water flosser but you’re not exactly sure how to use it, Dr. Henry Bowman and our dental team have some helpful instructions for you.

To begin, fill the tank with lukewarm water. When you’re done, put it back on the base and place the lid on top. Next, choose the tip you would like to use to clean your smile and secure it on the handle. Finally, select the amount of pressure you would like the tool to use.

When using the flosser, lean over the sink and place the tip in your mouth. Wrap your lips around the wand and then turn it on. Wrapping your lips around the flosser will keep the water from splashing and making a mess.

Next, start washing your smile by cleaning your molars, which are your back teeth. Aim the tip of the wand just above the gumline at a 90-degree angle. Let the water run along your gums and between your teeth, cleaning the plaque, bacteria, and food particles away. When you have cleaned the spaces between each tooth, turn the flosser off and remove the tip by pushing the tip eject button.
