Waterflossing is effective because it removes the plaque and bacteria from in between the teeth where the toothbrush bristles cannot reach. Waterflossers reduce the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease. They are very effective in cleaning around braces, bridgework, and implants. Waterflossers are also effective in controlling periodontal disease.
INSTRUCTIONS: Fill the reservoir with water, and add 1/3 cap full or Under the Gum Irrigant® or mouthwash as directed by your dentist or hygienist. When using the waterpik pocket tip, which is designed to clean below the gumline, place it against the tooth at a 45- degree angle, and gently move the tip on each tooth by the gumline, leaving the tip on each tooth for 2 seconds. Follow the gum line, pausing at the spaces between each tooth for a few seconds. Close your lip slightly to let the water flow into the sink. Keep the setting on the water pick to a 7-8. For best results, do not eat or drink for 15 min after use of this irrigant. Important: Rinse reservoir and flush with warm water after each use.
