Which is the best water flosser to use?

In this video I talk about which water flosser may be best for you to use, and weigh up some of the heavy hitters in the water flossing and oral irrigation arena.

Once you get over the idea that it’s messy and inconvenient to use, you will more than likely find that your mouth feels much better and that your gums feel “tighter” to the tooth.  Chances are, you will even experience less tooth sensitivity (use warm water if your teeth are sensitive).

Oral irrigation ( or water flossing) was occasionally suggested as an alternative for those who didn’t floss, but now it should be considered a regular part of oral hygiene for everyone.

Here’s why:

The research shows that the irrigation is safe for gum tissue both outside and inside the “pocket”, that it helps reduce bleeding, and it helps stop the destructive patterns of gingivitis and gum disease.

Recent studies continue to show that it is a perfect alternative to dental floss and other in-between the teeth cleaning aids because it directs a pulsating stream of water into the pocket which disrupts the biofilm.

It’s very difficult to reach these areas effectively with dental floss, wooden sticks or dental picks.

Biofilm is what needs to be controlled in the mouth in order to control the disease process.

Plaque and biofilm are essentially the same thing.  Media has picked up on the word biofilm, which is why you hear it more in commercials.  Confusing?  Perhaps, but just think biofilm (or plaque) as a community of bacteria.

Control the community and you help control the disease.

Decide which is the best water flosser for you, invest in the tool, and watch what happens to your mouth and the time needed in the dental chair.
