Water flossers are important for a lot of different reasons.

Why Does a Broken Tooth Only Hurt Some of the Time?
Posted on 7/28/2019 by Dr. Jon Packman
You may not even know something is wrong with your mouth, until you look in the mirror while flossing one morning, and you notice one of your back molars is broken. Or perhaps you were chewing on some hard pretzels, and you found a piece of pretzel that was really one of your teeth. The older you get, the more likely you are to have broken teeth. In fact, for people in the midlife and beyond, teeth cracking or breaking are a common occurrence. This is especially true if you are in your 40s-60s, because teeth were filled using an amalgam that can fall out or fail with age. Also, if you have deep pits in your molars back in the day, you may now have large fillings that have weak teeth around them. If you are worried about that broken tooth, keep reading. We can give you some information...
