Waterpiks: The Facts

Posted .

You probably know that you need to keep your teeth clean if you’re interested in avoiding problems like gum disease and tooth decay. Similarly, you’ve probably heard that brushing, flossing, and visiting our dentist once every six months are things you’ll need to do to keep your teeth clean. However, did you know that there are other things you might be able to do to keep your teeth clean? For instance, you might consider the benefits of a waterpik.

In reality, some people think waterpiks are easier to use than traditional floss. In reality, you can probably finish cleaning your waterpik in about a minute. All you’ll need to do is point the nozzle between your teeth so concentrated jets of water can remove plaque and bacteria from your smile. Furthermore, many people find using a waterpik more refreshing than using regular floss. Using waterpiks will also be more comfortable because you can choose between several different attachments. Finally, please know that a waterpik can actually clean some parts of your smile more effectively than floss can.
