There are many myths around water flossing – that it is hard to master, that it is messy.
Waterpik International, Inc. has been at the forefront of water flossing for many years now and its range of products will help change minds.
Waterpik® Water Flossers are easy to use – your patients need only fill the reservoir with lukewarm water, adjust the pressure control, place the tip in the mouth while leaning over a sink and turn the unit on with the lips closed to prevent splashing. Starting with the back teeth and pausing briefly at each interdental space, the tip should be aimed just above the gumline at a 90 degree angle. Patients can be directed to the Waterpik® website or YouTube for further instructions and demonstrations.
Backed up by conclusive evidence, the Water Flosser is clinically proven to:
- Remove 99.9% of plaque biofilm from treated areas in just 3 seconds[i],[ii]
- Reduce gingivitis[iii], probing pocket depth[iv] and bleeding[v]
- Be ideal for patients with braces, implants, crowns and periodontal pockets
