If you're wondering about the benefits of using a Waterpik® Water Flosser, here are 7 reasons it is one of the best products for your oral care routine:

  1. You May Be More Likely to Floss
  2. Cleaning Dental Work
  3. Flossing With Braces
  4. Getting a White & Bright Smile Naturally
  5. Fresher Breath
  6. Better Checkups
  7. Healthier Gums

1. You May Be More Likely to Floss

Using a Waterpik® Water Flosser is much easier and more pleasant than string flossing, so you may be more likely to want to floss every day.

You can avoid uncomfortable string digging into your fingers and gums. And the water pulsation has a soothing massage effect.

2. Cleaning Dental Work

If you currently have crowns, bridges, veneers, or implants, the Water Flosser can help you keep them clean and healthy. The Waterpik® Water Flosser is clinically proven more than 2x as effective at cleaning implants than string floss. The Plaque Seeker® Tip is designed to make cleaning dental work easier.

Using a Water Flosser can also reduce the need for expensive dental work down the road.

3. Flossing With Braces

The Water Flosser is the Easy and More Effective Way to Floss™ with braces. You don’t have to thread a tiny piece of string floss through wire after wire.

Once you get your braces off, inflammation or discomfort from a failure to floss with braces is minimized if you've been using a Water Flosser.

The Orthodontic Tip is specifically intended for cleaning around brackets.

4. Getting a White & Bright Smile Naturally

Using a Waterpik® Water Flosser is one of the easy and natural ways to keep your teeth sparkly white!

Water Flossing cleans off excess plaque that can make your teeth yellow, without causing tooth sensitivity as whitening treatments sometimes do.

5. Fresher Breath

Let’s face it: no one wants to be that person at the office with chronic coffee breath. When you use a Waterpik® Water Flosser, it can help remove plaque and bacteria that live below the gumline and cause bad breath. It gives you that fresh-from-the-dentist feeling right in the comfort of your own home.

6. Better Checkups

Very few people enjoy visiting the dentist, so implementing the Water Flosser into your daily routine can help alleviate that feeling of dread when your 6-month appointment rolls around. You can proudly show your hygienist those pearly whites, while also reducing the soreness you feel after your checkup.

7. Healthier Gums

When you don’t floss, bacteria from plaque can build up. This can lead to inflammation and discomfort. Failure to remove plaque from the teeth can lead to gum disease. The Waterpik® Water Flosser is clinically proven to reduce gingivitis and improve gum health. It cleans between your teeth and below the gumline to get rid of plaque that traditional dental floss leaves behind.
