Waterpik Water Flosser: Improving gingival health

Patients with swollen gums, lesions or gingival enlargement can have difficulty achieving adequate oral hygiene. So recommend the Waterpik® Water Flosser to help them maintain effective plaque control and improve gingival health.

As an adjunct to tooth brushing, the Waterpik Water Flosser is significantly more effective than string floss for removing plaque [1] and reducing gingivitis [2].

The Waterpik Water Flosser has also been shown to reduce pro-inflammatory mediators, bleeding on probing and probing pocket depths when compared to traditional oral hygiene measures [3].

To equip your patients with the means to reach optimal gingival health, contact Waterpik today.
