Why should I try a Waterpik?

Most people brush their teeth at least once a day. However, 50% of Americans have some type of gum disease. Brushing alone is not enough to protect you. A Waterpik is a way of flossing below the gum line and is estimated to remove 99.9% of plaque from in between your teeth. Regular floss only gets approximately 3mm below the gum tissue and is not as effective. It is also helpful for cleaning difficult areas to floss especially if you have braces, implants, crowns, and bridges allowing for better overall cleaning of your mouth. Keep Flossing!
