I just have to share some news with you from Waterpik about their launch of the Waterpik Water Flosser, that by the way I have used a few times now and it’s totally like having a dentist office in your home. The kids think it’s a toy so I do have to hide it from them.

WATER PIK, INC. OFFERS CONSUMERS A NEW WAY TO FLOSS WITH NEW WATERPIK® WATER FLOSSER
New Waterpik® Water Flosser Provides an Easier and More Effective
Alternative to Traditional Dental Floss
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (July 20, 2010) – Water Pik, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of innovative personal healthcare products, has announced the new Waterpik® Water Flosser.
Now there is an easier and more effective way of flossing your teeth. The Waterpik® Water Flosser is the next generation of Waterpik® oral health care products. It utilizes pulsating water to clean deep between teeth and below the gumline where traditional brushing and flossing can’t reach, and it was clinically proven to be even more effective than traditional string floss.
The University of Amsterdam just completed a clinical study comparing the Waterpik® Water Flosser to traditional string floss, and the Water Flosser was clinically proven to be twice as effective as traditional floss for improving gum health.1 In another study recently conducted by the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, the Water Flosser removed 99.9% of plaque from treated areas.2
“Let’s face it, most people simply don’t like to floss,”,” says Jay McCulloch, Vice President of Marketing for Oral Care Products, at Water Pik, Inc. “”Our data shows that 80% of Americans don’t floss regularly and 75% have some form of gum disease, so these new clinical research results are extremely relevant, because they show that people finally have an easier and more effective alternative to traditional floss.””
The Waterpik® Water Flosser is perfect for those who do not like to floss – it is easy to use and only takes about a minute a day to start improving gum health. Instead of your dental hygienist telling you that you need to floss more often, you can hear how great your teeth and gums look.
I totally loved this product and think it helped get that plaque that gets behind my bottom front teeth that the dentist always has to get out at every visit. I did notice that this could be too much for teeth that are sensitive, such as my boyfriend. He didn’t try it out but I do know his teeth can be sensitive to water, maybe he could try a warmer water than I tried.
Either way I do think this is a great alternative to dental floss if you have the space and time to use it!
