Oral irrigators are oral care devices that are used to remove the plaque and food particles that are trapped between the teeth. Sometimes oral irrigator is called water flosser because it does the same job as dental floss.
Oral irrigator produces a stream of water or water an air mixture that flosses space between the teeth and gently massages the gums.
Benefits of oral irrigators
The oral irrigators have been around for almost 50 years since the first prototype was developed in early 1960-ies. Since then oral care professionals have tested the device extensively and found out that it is almost as effective as traditional dental floss. The added benefit of water flosser is strengthening the gums and reducing the gum bleeding.
Irrigators are also a very effective means of taking care of your crowns, dental implants and orthodontic appliances like brackets. I was wearing braces for almost 3 years in my early 20-ies and I remember how difficult it was to remove food like cookies from around the braces using toothbrush. It would be an easy job if I have had an oral irrigator.
