How To Clean Your Water Flosser®?

It is often advised to brush your teeth twice a day in order to maintain oral hygiene. However, is brushing enough to whisk away all the germs and bacteria from hard-to-reach corners of the mouth? Even after brushing, one may find leftover food residues stuck amid the tiny gaps between the teeth. These food particles can be eliminated and washed down by using a water flosser for teeth.

A water flosser® is a handheld device that uses high-pressure pulsating water in order to clean all the plaque and debris from the mouth, in a quick and effective way. These dental flossers are ideal for braces. It also removes more plaque than a traditional thread flosser, preventing an individual from various oral health concerns such as tooth decay, cavities, and more.

However, in order to prolong your water flosser's life, it is essential to clean and maintain the same. In this blog, we have mentioned below the best ways in which one can clean their ORACURA® dental flosser. 

Cleaning Your Dental Flosser: 

1] Rinse the Water Tank: Empty the water from the tank and rinse the tank gently with water in order to keep it clean and spotless. One can use a damp cloth to gently wipe the tank of their dental flosser. Keep the tank dry in order to prevent the build-up of bacteria. Along with this, also ensure to wash the valve of the flosser in order to maintain the utmost hygiene of your oral care solutions.

2] Clean The External Surfaces: External surfaces of the water flosser® such as the main unit and handle should be regularly cleaned and wiped with a damp cloth. Please make sure to never submerge the main unit of the flosser in the water to clean.

3] Clean The Nozzle Tips: It is essential to clean the nozzle tips of your water flosser® after every use. Wash the nozzle with water and then wipe it using a cloth.

4] Replace The Nozzle Tips: It is recommended to replace the nozzle tips after every 3-4 months. ORACURA® offers various tips such as orthodontic tips, standard tips, pocket tips, and tongue scrapers that one can choose from in order to ensure a thorough cleanse.

5] Clean The Flosser Parts: Clean the various dental water flosser® parts such as the water tank suction pipe, water tank cap, etc by wiping it with a soft cloth. This will keep your flosser away from any germs and harmful bacteria.

Note: While cleaning your water flosser®, make sure that the unit is turned off and is disconnected from the power supply. Always follow the safety guidelines to avoid injuries.

In case of any damage or misplacement of the spare part or accessories of your ORACURA® water flossers or sonic brushes, one can easily purchase the same from their website.
