You brush your teeth every morning and night and get your teeth cleaned at the dentist twice a year — so does flossing every day really even matter? Actually, it really does. Even if you’re pretty diligent when it comes to oral care, failing to floss — or failing to floss well — can do some major damage to that pretty smile of yours. So why not make things easy on yourself by using this rechargeable Aqua Flosser?
This dentist-recommended water flosser takes your oral care to a whole new level of clean. With directed water jets and three different cleaning modes, the electric water flosser is five times more effective than traditional flossing. Not to mention the fact it’s far more gentle on your gums than harsh, hard-to-hold floss. The Aqua Flosser Rechargeable Water Flosser comfortably massages your gums and can target those hard-to-reach spots that tend to miss out on all the cleaning action.
It’s hard to believe an electric water flosser can do this much in one single use! But the best part? It cuts regular flossing time in half! So doing a quick water-floss after meals or before bed is faster and easier than checking your emails. And if you have braces (or live with someone who does), the water flosser is a great, gentle way to remove stubborn food and plaque that can cause some seriously embarrassing moments.
Want to get the whole fam to hop on the water-flossing train? No problem. The Aqua Flosser comes with four different color-coded tips so you can easily share the love. It also includes a power chord for convenient charging and a cute carrying case so you can take it just about anywhere this summer. And at its discounted rate of just $40, this deal is definitely something to smile about!
Still not entirely convinced flossing with the Aqua Flosser every day is necessary? Check out the kinds of problems you might be facing if you fail to floss your pearly whites on the daily.
1. Stinky breath
If you’re thinking of foregoing flossing, you’d better keep a pack of gum handy at all times. That’s because failing to floss on a regular basis can lead to gum disease (which you’ll learn about more in a minute), causing little bits of food to get lodged into loosened gums, resulting in bad breath. But even if you don’t have gum disease, any leftover food and gunk caught in between your teeth can cause a nasty odor to come out of your mouth. Sure, you can chew gum or suck on mints, but those are just temporary fixes. Using a water flosser just once a day can make a world of difference — especially if you have a hot date in the near future.
2. Plaque build-up
You probably already knew that plaque can accumulate on the surface of your teeth, but did you know that stuff can really pile up in between your chompers? If you don’t regularly remove that hard-to-reach plaque, it can grow, turning into a substance known as tartar that can actually cause cavities. Using regular floss can remove the plaque, but this can really irritate your gums over time. Try targeting hidden plaque between your teeth with the handy Aqua Flosser since it’s gentler on your gums and way more effective.
3. Bleeding gums
Ever notice that after you floss, your gums will often start to bleed? Even though this is really common, it isn’t good. Bleeding gums are a result of harsh, traditional floss coming at your teeth. However, not flossing regularly can cause your gums to bleed even more. That’s because if bacteria builds up on your gums, your body will send over blood cells to fight the potential infection, hence, that awkward, bloody mess. You can avoid all this nastiness by tossing your traditional floss in the trash and switching over to the much safer Aqua Flosser.
4. Gum disease
Even if you don’t know what exactly gum disease is, it definitely doesn’t sound like a walk in the park. Gum disease is caused by a sticky bacteria called tartar that forms at the base of your teeth and on your gums, causing your gum tissue to loosen. This can cause all kinds of problems like bad breath, cavities and much more. Luckily, early signs of gum disease like inflamed gums are reversible by brushing and flossing your teeth regularly along with frequent trips to the dentist chair. But why risk all this when you can water-floss your teeth for literally a couple minutes a day? Sounds like a no-brainer.
