8 Simple Steps for Using a Water Flosser

Fill and place water flosser reservoir
  1. Fill the reservoir with lukewarm water and place it on the base, pressing down firmly to ensure full seating.
  2. Select the tip and press firmly into the handle.
  3. If this is the first use, set the pressure control dial to high. Point the tip into the sink and turn on until water flows. Turn unit off.
 
Lean over the sink
  1. Adjust the pressure control (start at low pressure).
  2. Lean over the sink and place tip in mouth.
  3. Turn unit on. Close lips to prevent splashing, while allowing water to flow from mouth into sink.
 
Move the flosser tip along the gums

  2. When finished, turn unit off and use the tip eject button to remove the tip.

Clinical studies show that when used properly, dental floss can improve oral health. But overly vigorous or incorrect flossing can also result in gum tissue damage.

How to floss with dental floss

  1. Use about 18 inches of dental floss wound around one of your middle fingers, with the rest wound around the opposite middle finger.
  2. Hold the dental floss tightly between the thumbs and forefingers and gently insert it between the teeth.
  3. Curve the dental floss against the side of the tooth in a 'C' shape
  4. Rub the floss gently up and down, keeping it pressed against the tooth. Don't jerk or snap the floss.
  5. Repeat on adjacent and subsequent teeth.
  6. As you move from tooth to tooth unwind the clean floss with one finger and take up the used floss with the opposite finger.

Why Waterpik®

Brushing Your Teeth Is Not Enough

Even though most of us brush our teeth, half of all American adults have gum disease, which is a root cause of bad breath and tooth loss.

To help prevent gum disease, dental professionals tell us to floss daily. But many of us don’t because string floss is difficult and time consuming to use.

That's why Water Pik created the Water Flosser - an Easy and More Effective Way to Floss!

  • Easy to use. Just point the flosser tip between your teeth and along the gumline, and let it do all the work for you.
  • Fast. Water Flossing takes only a minute a day, making it easy to improve your oral health and enjoy the cleanest, freshest mouth possible.
  • Effective. The Waterpik® Water Flosser removes the plaque and debris lurking deep between teeth and below the gumline, where it’s hard to reach with traditional brushing and flossing.
The results are clinically proven - Water Flossing is up to 50% more effective than string floss and up to 80% more effective than Sonicare® Air Floss (model HX8181) for improving gum health.

#1 Brand Recommended by Dental Professionals

9 out of 10 dental professionals recommend the Waterpik® Water Flosser over other brands. That's because Waterpik® is known for unsurpassed performance and quality, with more research supportthan any other brand on the market.

 

Oral Health and Your Body

The Importance of Better Oral Health to Your Total Health

Oral Health and Total Health

Researchers have found that gum disease is linked with other health problems. Gum disease ranges from a mild type known as gingivitis to the more serious type called periodontitis.

The mouth can offer clues about overall health, and problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body.

To help you learn more about the importance of good oral health to your total health, we have collected professional articles and information related to a variety of conditions:

  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease and Stroke
  • Pregnancy and Birth

To prevent and treat gum disease, learn how to keep your mouth healthy.

Alzheimer’s Disease 

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common manifestation of elderly dementia. People with poor oral hygiene or gum disease may be at a greater risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

Arthritis 

Studies indicate that people with periodontal disease have an increased prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RA is an autoimmune disorder that typically affects the small joints.

Cancer 

Periodontal disease has been associated with an increase in overall cancer risk. Researchers consider infections, such as periodontitis, and the body’s inflammatory response as potential cancer triggers.

Diabetes 

Diabetes is a chronic disease that can lower the body’s resistance to infection. Periodontitis is an infection in your gums, which can result in higher blood sugar levels and more challenges with controlling the disease.

Heart Disease and Stroke

Studies have shown that periodontal disease is associated with heart disease. While gum disease and heart disease share common risk factors such as smoking and diabetes, in many studies the association appears to exist independent of these factors

Pregnancy and Birth 

Hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy can cause pregnancy gingivitis and periodontitis. Several research studies suggest that women with periodontal disease may be more likely to deliver babies prematurely or with low-birth weight than mothers with healthy gums.

Keep Your Mouth Healthy

Healthy teeth and gums

Gum disease is preventable and treatable. Brushing and flossing your teeth daily are important to avoid gum disease and the risks it places on overall health.

Adding a Waterpik® Water Flosser to your daily routine is one of the most effective ways to improve your oral health. In fact, clinical studies show that the Water Flosser in conjunction with toothbrushing is more effective than dental floss at reducing bleeding gums and removing plaque.

If you see signs of gingivitis or gum disease, call your dentist and make an appointment for an exam. Your dentist and dental hygienist will determine the best treatment for you.

Specific Dental Needs

Enjoy Better Oral Health

Good dental care is a must for maintaining healthy gums, protecting teeth, and reducing the risk of gum disease. The plaque that forms in your mouth every day is home to thousands of bacteria.

When you don’t remove plaque during tooth brushing or cleaning between your teeth, the bacteria become more infectious and are likely to cause gum disease.

Dental work, orthodontic braces, certain medical conditions, and other factors can make maintaining good dental care challenging. Explore below to learn about these issues and ways to improve your oral health.
