“I have several patients who use the Waterpik® Water Flosser, who say it is easy to use,” says Stefanie Binnee, a dental hygienist and therapist from Garden View Dental Care in Beaconsfield.
“I think it would benefit people with manual dexterity problems in particular, as it is not too heavy and is easy to hold. I also believe patients with implant bridges and tight interproximal gaps who wouldn't normally use dental floss or interdental brushes have found the Water Flosser beneficial as well.”
The Waterpik® Water Flosser is supported by extensive clinical research to ensure its safety and effectiveness for a wide range of patients.
A recent pilot study found that the Water Flosser offers significantly better reductions in bleeding-on-probing than interdental brushes.1 Other research has also demonstrated the solution to be up to 54% more effective than the Sonicare® Air Floss Pro for reducing gingival bleeding and up to 32% more effective for reducing gingivitis.2
