What You Should Know About Waterpiks

June 11, 2021

You’ve probably heard that brushing and flossing are important steps you should take if you’re interested in keeping your teeth healthy and strong. However, would you be surprised to hear that there are other things you might be able to do to remove plaque and bacteria from between your teeth? For example, you might be able to clean your teeth with a Waterpik instead of with traditional floss.

As you might have guessed, a Waterpik can send a focused stream of water between your teeth. This can actually remove the debris and plaque between your teeth, which could cause gum disease and tooth decay. Waterpiks are also popular because they generally come with several attachments. Because there are several options, you can choose the attachment that best meets your needs.

Again, please remember that waterpiks are actually easy to use. In fact, many people actually think using a Waterpik is easier than flossing. You can usually clean your mouth with a Waterpik in about a minute every day. Finally, please remember that a Waterpik can actually clean some areas more easily than floss can.
