Waterpiks – Better Than Traditional Flossing!
Posted on July 25 2014
Are you getting tired of messing with traditional string floss to clean in-between your teeth? While using the more traditional sting floss is definitely still better than not flossing at all, using a waterpik flosser is quicker, easier, and clinically proven to be up to 50% more effective than using string floss!
Using a waterpik flosser also helps prevent gum disease. It gets deep down between the teeth and below the gumline to remove hard-to-reach plaque and debris, leading to healthier gums in just 14 days! Plus, it’s much quicker and easier than using string floss, taking just 1 minute a day to improve your oral health. Simply aim the tip between the teeth and along the gumline and let it do the rest of the work for you.
A 2012 article found on the American Dental Hygienists’ Association website, written by Jacquelyn L. Fried, RDH, MS for the Standards In Practice, also talks about the many benefits of using waterpik flossers, pointing out that they were found to significantly reduce bleeding of the gums and were exceptional when it came to removing plaque biofilm and debris from dental appliances, such as braces.
Also great news, they are affordable. For example, you can get the Waterpick Classic Water Flosser from Mountainside Medical Equipment for just $53. It Removes 99.9% of plaque within 3 seconds, is twice as effective as string floss, and improves circulation to help keep your gums strong and healthy.
