Why Waterpik®

Brushing Your Teeth Is Not Enough.

Even though most of us brush our teeth, many of us have experienced some form of 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 Waterpik® created the Water Flosser - an Easy and More Effective Way to clean between teeth!

  • 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 for improving gum health.
