From our Hygienist:
Oral irrigators are a great way to make your gums healthier! Usually called waterpik, they use pressurized water to flush out harmful bacterial toxins and trapped food from under your gums and between your teeth. Some studies have shown that irrigator use can even be more effective than flossing! The best way to use an oral irrigator is after flossing and brushing every day, but even without flossing, you can do amazing work to improve your oral health and reduce the risk of gum disease.
One of the easiest ways I’ve found for people to add this to their daily routine is get an oral irrigator that attaches to your shower head. They can be found online and are an inexpensive way to add this amazing tool to your personal care routine.
