How To Choose Between Tooth Flossers

Updated on July 27, 2010

Long Reach Flosser

I went to the dentist a month and had a horrible experience and it has only been 6 months.  So I was spitting out mouthfuls of blood and had extremely inflamed gums after the dental cleaning I thought it was because of the dental hygienist but it wasn't. I thought to myself what am i doing different since I have never had that problem.  So I talked to the dentist and the dental hygienist and they recommended using a Long Reach Tooth Flosser.  Also that you should floss at least once a day so i tried it to strengthen my gums and make them a little rougher so they weren't so soft because that can lead to other problems later on.  Here are some Tooth Flosser to choose from and even my favorite long tooth flosser.

Reach Flosser is Great!

This is my favorite long reach tooth flosser because it reaches the back of your mouth with ease with out you struggling with floss wrapped around your finger, trying to reach way back. The Reach Flosser is incredible because it's a lot more gentle one your gums that it actually makes flossing not bad at all. Remember flossing can help even reduce some heart problems down the road. Whats nice about the Reach Flosser is that it has snap on and snap off heads to make easy cleaning and cleaning up. It comes in a couple different colors, so if your sick of the picks and the string then check this out.

Why to Choose the Waterpik

Looking for a method to make your gums healthier then try this clinically proven product called the Waterpik WP-100 Ultra Dental Water Jet, it's actually more effective than flossing. Most dental professionals recommend brushing and flossing to keep your teeth and gums their healthiest. Unfortunately, nearly 75-percent of Americans don't floss on a regular basis, alot of the time because of pain, bleeding or just time. Finally, there is an effective alternative to flossing that feels great and is simple to complete. Waterpik has designed the WP-100 to deliver a water pressure of 10 to 90 PSI with 1200 pulses per minute. This system delivers a clinically proven combination of water pressure and pulsation to remove debris and bacteria lodged deep between teeth and below the gum-line -- three times deeper than brushing alone. The Waterpik Ultra is so effective that it is clinically proven to be up to 93-percent more effective than flossing at reducing gum bleeding -- a key indicator of impending gum disease.

Items for the Waterpik

  • Six tips (included)
  • 1 - Classic Jet Tip
  • 1 - Plaque Seeker Tip
  • 1 - Orthodontic Tip
  • 1 - Pik Pocket Tip
  • 1 - Toothbrush Tip
  • 1 - Tongue Cleaner
  • Contemporary compact design -- 20-percent smaller than previous models
  • Advanced ergonomic handle design -- optimized maneuverability
  • Advanced pressure control with 10 pressure settings
  • Quiet operation
  • Covered reservoir with extra tip storage in the lid
  • 14-day "Healthier Gum" guarantee

I put this on here for teeth flossers because i don't recommend this one because of the choking hazard warning which doesn't sit well with me.  So if you pick one pick the two above they are quality product.

Benefits of flossing

Periodontitis as a result of not flossing can cause inflammatory disease throughout the body. Study’s have found links to the following health issues:

  • Cardiovascular disease:harmful bacteria that enter the bloodstream through infected gums can cause heart disease, clogged arteries, and stroke
  • Respiratory disease: overgrowth of bacteria in the mouth can be aspirated and settle in the lung tissues
  • Premature births: women with periodontal disease are more likely to give birth prematurely
  • Prevents Bad Breath

Remember I'm not your doctor I'm just listing known facts about flossing.  For questions please contact you r dentist.
