The Waterpik® Water Flosser: Signficantly More Effective than Air Floss Pro for Improving Gum Health

The introduction of the Air Floss Pro (model HX8341) generated questions from dental professionals about how it compared to the Waterpik® Water Flosser. Simply stated, the Water Flosser is:

  • 54% more effective for reducing gingival bleeding
  • 32% more effective for reducing gingivitis
  • 28% more effective for reducing plaque

This information compliments a previous study comparing the original Air Floss (model HX8181) by demonstrating the hydrodynamic action of the Water Flosser.  This technology has been shown in repeated studies to be a very effective way to floss.
