Water Pik Benefits
By the Amerident Staff
So, what is it about using a Waterpik to help you save your teeth and have healthy gums? It is the number one brand of oral irrigator recommended by dentists and hygienists.
Good oral health is obtained by having a commitment to great home care habits. For years, dentists and hygienists have encouraged flossing for cleaning between the teeth. However, many of these professionals and their patients know that flossing isn’t something that is easy to get some patients in the habit of doing on a regular basis. But there is good news. You can have healthier teeth and gums by using an oral irrigator such as the Water Pik Water Flosser once per day. Even if you already use an ADA Approved Power Toothbrush, by adding the Water Pik Water Flosser to your home care routine, you will greatly reduce plaque build-up and significantly less risk of gingivitis.
Water Pik’s impressive record for safety and effectiveness has been evaluated in more than 55 published clinical studies at 25 independent and university-based research centers. The Waterpik Water Flosser is clinically proven to provide significant oral health benefits to even those with periodontal disease, meaning gingivitis or periodontitis. This results in improved health for patients who have deep gum pockets and bone loss of the jaw which holds your teeth in their sockets. Use it once per day followng your periodontal scaling and root planing (deep cleaning) appointments and between your 3 month periodontal maintenance appointments. Even if you visit us every 6 months for regular cleaning appointments, the Water Pik Water Flosser helps to provide heathier gums and cleaner teeth, leaving you at less risk for cavities, too. It has also been proven to be beneficial to clean around braces, implants, crowns, bridges, and is an excellent choice for patients at higher risk of periodontal diseases, such as patients who are pregnant, have or at risk for heart diseaase or diabetes and have a family history of gum disease.
