Do you wonder how you can floss your teeth with water?

Watch this demonstration to see what flossing with water is all about, then read on to learn how a Waterpik® Water Flosser works.

The rows of corn are like your teeth. You probably brush your teeth regularly. But did you know how much your toothbrush leaves behind?

As the demonstration shows, the Waterpik® Water Flosser reaches those places your toothbrush can’t. It cleans between your teeth and below the gumline amazingly well.

Water Pressure and Pulsation Do the Work

So how exactly does a Waterpik® Water Flosser work? The cleaning power behind the Waterpik® Water Flosser is a combination of water pressure and pulsations. When you direct the water from the flosser tip at your gumline and between your teeth, the combination of pressure and pulsations cleans away harmful plaque and food debris.

Studies show that pulsating water is more effective at cleaning vs. a steady stream of water. And you can adjust the pressure setting to your liking, from a gentle to maximum cleanse.

Easier Than String Floss

As you saw in the demonstration, brushing your teeth just cleans the surface. It can’t get in between your teeth or below the gumline. That’s why your dentist and dental hygienist want you to floss every day.

But most of us don’t like to use string floss, or we don’t use it correctly. The Waterpik® Water Flosser is more comfortable and easier to use than string floss. Plus, it’s clinically proven more effective.

Get an Unbelievably Clean and Healthy Mouth

Now that you’ve seen how well the Waterpik® Water Flosser works on an ear of corn, imagine what it can remove from your teeth, even after you brush.

Water flossing is easy, fast, and effective for anyone who wants a cleaner, healthier mouth. And you’ll love the feeling you get after using the Waterpik® Water Flosser!
