oral irrigation, always with you

7th November 2011 0

Oral irrigation is the direct application of a stream of water or mouthwash solution, which is recommended by the dentist to remove bacterial deposits on teeth, gums and in hard-to-reach areas.

Waterpik® oral irrigators provide improved gingival health, and are clinically proven to be 93% more effective in improving gingival health when combined with a manual toothbrush when compared to brushing alone (Barnes CM et al. J. Clin Dent 2005).

Oral irrigation is indicated for anyone, but is particularly useful for people who have braces, implants or crowns. It is also very effective in people who have more strict oral hygiene needs, such as diabetics.
