The technology of waterpicks has been used in the field of dentistry for many years now. At our office, Dr. Grabiak utilizes this equipment to provide patients with a gentler alternative during their regular bi-annual dental cleanings. Today, at-home waterpicks are being marketed and sold to the public, providing an alternative to flossing for both children and adults.
It’s important to know how this technology works before considering an investment for you and your family. These devices use water pressure for precision cleaning between teeth and at the gum line. It has been shown to work better than traditional dental floss. Optional pulsation offers gum massage, strengthening your gums and their defenses to fight plaque build up.
Primarily, these devices replace your flossing routine. They are also great tools for teenagers with braces as well as adults with dental prosthetics to maintain, like implants and crowns. We also recommend these products for patients suffering from periodontal disease, more commonly known as gum disease. It has the ability to safely and gently reverse the effects of the disease.
At your next consultation with Dr. Grabiak, your can talk about whether a waterpk could help you maintain better oral healthcare and discuss the popular options currently on the market to help you make a decision.
