If you, like me, have recently returned from your bi-annual trip to your friendly neighbourhood dentist and received a b********g for not doing enough to ensure good oral health and hygiene, by including flossing into my daily oral healthcare regime, then this is the product for you. By the way if you haven’t been to your dentist recently, URGH !
Now as we said it isn’t enough to merely brush thoroughly – you need to be getting between teeth to stop stains and plaque from building up there. The added benefit of cleaning between teeth properly? You’ll be safeguarding their health, as brushing alone will only remove food and plaque from the surface of your teeth, but cleaning between teeth and below the gum line will reduce the likelihood of developing gum disease and bad breath.
Traditionally, tooth-savvy Fellas have used floss for the job, but floss doesn’t work for everyone, as I know, – those with braces, veneers, or tightly-packed teeth can struggle to wiggle floss between teeth, the problem with interdental brushes is access, they don’t fit everywhere, you often need more than one size and are costly over time.
The answer? The Waterpik innovative Water Flosser, AKA your daily dentist will ensure any residual food or bacteria is gently flushed from around the teeth and below the gum line doing away with the need for floss or interdental brushes. With 45 seconds of water capacity in the chamber and the ability to remove up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas, it’s unsurprising that it is the #1 model recommended by dentists in the oral health-obsessed US of A.
The ideal way to keep your teeth healthy and white, and a perfect gift for anyone who likes to look after their smile, here are the key things you need to know about the Waterpik and what it’s clinically proven to do:
Up to 50% more effective than string floss for improving gum health.
