Hear what dental professionals have to say...
Not only has research proven the effectiveness and safety of the high-quality products available from Waterpik International, Inc., but a number of professionals also recommend the products:
Michael Wheeler, a dental hygienist at Bramcote Dental Practice in Castle Cary and an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Kent, commented:
"I am a firm advocate of the Waterpik® Water Flosser - both for those patients who are having difficulties in maintaining oral hygiene with bridges or crowns, and those who already demonstrate good oral hygiene routines. The Water Flosser is a very effective product and is relatively easy to use, so it's really beneficial for all."
Equally impressed was Dr Chris Branfield, a principal dentist at Castle Park Dental Care in Cottingham, East Riding of Yorkshire.
"I find Waterpik® Water Flossers especially useful for implant cases. They are perfect for full arch 'all-in one' implant bridges. I introduce the Water Flosser to people who can't floss or won't floss. It is very good for people who struggle with manual dexterity and we have had some marked improvement in periodontal health."
Lynn McCartin, a dental therapist working on HMS Nelson, came across the innovative products available from Waterpik International Inc. at EuroPerio8.
"I thought the Water Flossers were well designed and efficient, offering an effective alternative for patients who don't like using interdental brushes or string floss. I think the option of being able to add diluted mouthwash instead of water to the products will also prove beneficial for some patients' gingival health."
German Martin Roger, dental hygienist from the Apollonia Dental & Cosmetic Centre in Liverpool, adds:
"I like to recommend reliable, efficient and relatively easy-to-use products to patients. When they see the benefits of water flossing they continue to use the products long-term, which encourages a definite improvement in their oral health."
