Why You Should Consider Flossing with the Waterpik Water Flosser

Posted Jul 6th, 2018

The Waterpik Water Flosser is a clever device that uses a stream of pressurized water to "floss" your teeth and gums. To use the Waterpik, you simply direct the flosser tip along the gum line and let it do the work of removing plaque and food particles for you. At our Edmonton dental clinic, the Azarko Dental Group dentists have been impressed with the results in patients who use the Waterpik. 

Whether you already floss on a daily basis or you're just trying to get started, here are five reasons to use the Waterpik Water Flosser.

  1. You'll have an easier time keeping your teeth healthy and white
    Numerous clinical trials and reviews have found the Waterpik Water Flosser to be effective at helping people maintain good oral hygiene. It removes the excess plaque that promotes the development of cavities and causes the teeth to appear yellow. Waterpik is a great alternative to traditional floss and, in fact, it often does an even better job at keeping the teeth both healthy and white.
  2. Your gums will likely benefit as well
    The Waterpik is uniquely designed to remove plaque bacteria from around the gums and from the gum pocket via a pulsating action. Using the water flosser on a daily basis has been found to significantly decrease rates of gum bleeding and gum disease. It is capable of getting rid of plaque that brushing and traditional flossing would have typically left behind.
  3. You'll have an easier time flossing with braces
    There is no easier or more effective way to floss when wearing braces than by using the Waterpik. Rather than trying to work a string of floss through the brackets and wires, you simply have to direct the water around them. Best of all, it comes with a special orthodontic tip specifically intended for this purpose. The Waterpik significantly reduces gum inflammation and irritation while wearing braces.
  4. You'll have an easier time cleaning any dental work
    Just as it is helpful for cleaning braces, the Waterpik can likewise be fitted with a special tip for cleaning dental work such as crownsveneersdental bridges, and dental implants. Maintaining dental work is critical for keeping it clean and white and for helping it last a long time.
  5. You'll be more motivated to floss every day
    Flossing is one of the hardest dental hygiene habits to pick up and stick to. The Waterpik Water Flosser makes flossing easy and enjoyable. Plus, once you start noticing all of the benefits that come from using the Waterpik, you'll be even more motivated to use it every day.
