Patients with swollen gums, lesions or gingival enlargement can have difficulty achieving adequate oral hygiene. So recommend the Waterpik® Water Flosser to help them maintain effective plaque control and improve gingival health.

As an adjunct to tooth brushing, the Waterpik® Water Flosser is significantly more effective than string floss for removing plaque[i]and reducing gingivitis.[ii]

The Waterpik® Water Flosser has also been shown to reduce pro-inflammatory mediators, bleeding on probing and probing pocket depths when compared to traditional oral hygiene measures.[iii]

To equip your patients with the means to reach optimal gingival health, contact Waterpik® today.
