Waterpik® Water flosser.

The popularity of water flossers is growing, with TikTok videos going viral, and for good reason! Water flossing for one minute before brushing easily removes bacteria and debris from hard-to-reach areas deep between teeth and below the gumline where traditional brushing and flossing can't reach. The patented pulsating, massaging action increases circulation and gum health. However, not all water flossers are made equal. During clinical trials, the Waterpik® Water Flosser was found to be Twice as Effective as String Floss for Reducing Gingival Bleeding. 


Reduction of Gingival Bleeding – 14 Day Results:

After 14 days, used in conjunction with manual tooth brushing, the Waterpik® Water Flosser with the Classic Jet Tip was twice as effective as traditional floss at reducing gingival bleeding. At 30 days, the relative improvement in gingival bleeding for the Water Flosser groups was even more dramatic. There were no significant differences between the Water Flosser Classic Jet Tip and the Plaque Seeker® Tip.

The Waterpik® water flosser is clinically proven to provide significant oral health benefits:

  • Improve gum health

  • Remove plaque and bacteria

  • Reach areas that you can't get to with a toothbrush or string floss

·       Removes up to 99.99% of plaque from treated areas

·       Up to 2X as effective for implants vs String Floss

·       Up to 3X as effective for Braces vs String Floss

The sleek and easy to use Waterpik® water flosser is ideal for implants, and essential for braces.
