Signs You Should Consider a Water Flosser

Dental Procedure Roswell, GA

All types of floss are designed to do the same thing – clean between your teeth. In fact, 35% of your tooth’s surface cannot be reached by brushing alone. When areas of your teeth don’t get addressed, a buildup of plaque can develop. When left alone, plaque produces harmful acids that eat away at the enamel of your teeth. This sticky film leads to decay and gum disease, especially after it has hardened into tartar. While plaque is difficult to prevent, it is very easy to remove if addressed in a timely manner.

Traditional string floss is certainly enough to remove food, bacteria and plaque from between your teeth. However, some patients can benefit from a more advanced flossing tool called a water flosser.

What is a Water Flosser?

A water flosser is a handheld electronic tool that uses high-powered streams water to blast away plaque, food and other unwanted debris from your teeth. Water flossers are super easy to use and highly effective, but this flossing tool can be notably higher than old fashioned flossing thread. Therefore, many patients want to weigh the benefits of a water flosser and determine if it is worth their personal investment.

You May Need a Water Flosser IF . . .

Just like choosing between a manual toothbrush or an electronic brush, it largely comes down to personal preference. However, when it comes to water flossers, there are some specific reasons why this high-powered version may be best for certain individuals.

Here are some common signs that a water flosser may be right for you:

  • You have poor patience and technique using string floss.
  • You lack dexterity and/or coordination to thread traditional floss.
  • You have dental or orthodontic work that makes it tricky to floss traditionally.
  • Your teeth are crooked or crowded.
  • You are short on time.
  • You’d rather food debris be blasted and rinsed away without seeing it.

At the office of Dr. Mitzi Morris, we just want you to floss every day. The tool you use or how much money you invest is up to you. However, we do find that young children, teens in braces and aging adults appreciate water flossers for their superior effectiveness and ease of use. There are even cordless water flossers that allow you to floss in the shower and avoid cleanup on your bathroom counters or mirrors from splashing. Need more flossing tips?

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

    Christopher P
  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

    David G
  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
