Waterpicks – flossing with water

Waterpicks, also known as water flossers

When having any restoration placed, it is vital that you can look after it well. This helps maintain the longevity and health of what has been placed in your mouth.

One of the most important ways to do this is by cleaning it properly to remove plaque bacteria which can become harmful causing gum inflammation, bleeding and potentially gum disease.

If gum disease takes hold, it can cause bone loss and gum recession which can affect the stability and appearance of your treatment. With all this considered, just cleaning things well can make a huge difference.

There are many ways to take care of your teeth, floss, interdental brushes, mouthwashes etc. A lot of these methods are easier said than done, especially if you have had a complex treatment that can be difficult to clean.

However, innovative design is fast becoming a popular way to clean both fixed and removable prosthesis in the mouth. From implants, implant bars and all on 4 bridges to traditional crowns and bridges on natural teeth, water picks are an effective way to keep things clean.

Also known as water flossers, waterpicks use ‘jets’ of water to dislodge food deposits, debris and disturb the formation of plaque biofilm and bacteria to help keep gum tissue healthy. Described as flossing with water, this design is fast becoming popular amongst those with all kinds of dental work, both fixed and removable.

It is safe to use around all dental treatment and can also be filled with your favourite mouthwash which means it can be tailored to your own oral hygiene needs and preferences.

This may also be a solution for those who struggle with the use of traditional floss or super floss around crowns and bridges or even natural teeth.

Floss can be tricky to manoeuvre, especially around restorations. This means it is common that people struggle to clean around these and so may even neglect the cleaning of some or all areas of their mouth. Water flossing may be a simple solution for great outcomes.
