String Floss vs. Water Flosser

At Brownsburg Dental Professionals, PC, we're proud to help patients of all ages throughout Brownsburg, Pittsboro, and the greater Indianapolis area achieve healthy, beautiful smiles that last a lifetime. And while the dental care we provide in our office is important, how you care for your teeth at home is vital to your dental health – and that includes flossing. In recent years, a new device called a water pick, or water flosser has emerged as an alternative to traditional floss. As your family dentist in Avon, IN, we wanted to help demystify the difference between water flossers and string floss and help you decide if using a water flosser is right for you.

While dental x-rays do use radiation, the dosage is precisely controlled and so small that there is virtually no danger.

Drinks That Attack Your Teeth

Tooth decay is the destruction of your tooth’s enamel, which is the hard, outer shell of your teeth. Tooth decay can lead to toothaches, cavities, infections, gum disease, and possibly even tooth loss. Not only that, but tooth decay can be harmful for the entire body in many ways as well. Toothaches can cause a person to be unable to chew properly or eat certain foods, which may lead to a lack of nutrition. Also, when you’re unable to chew properly, you may not be able to break your food into smaller, digestible pieces, which can lead to GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease). It doesn’t stop there either! Serious cases of tooth decay can sometimes lead to infections which can ultimately cause fatigue, flu-like illnesses, or even heart disease. Read on...
