For many people, Waterpik technology is a wonderful adjunct to their daily oral hygiene routine. A powerful jet of water is directed into the mouth to flush out ever last bit of plaque, food residue and even bacteria. There are those who prefer to use an electronic toothbrush, but if you suffer from gum disease you may prefer the water jet to the toothbrush head. It can feel less painful to inflamed gums.

Although it feels gentler than a toothbrush head, a jet of water is a highly effective tool for flushing out debris from spots you may not have been able to reach before. Some users say they noticed a difference in the health of their gums after only a week of use. Let's not also forget that such a thorough clean is sure to result in an improvement in bad breath. Those are benefits that are hard to beat.

Combating Gum Disease with Waterpik

Gum disease at any stage is notoriously difficult to overcome once it has established itself. If Waterpik technology can help then it's way ahead of many other so-called cures. Although it may take a few days to get the hang of using a Waterpik, once you do it'll become second nature. The few extra minutes it takes to use such a machine will be more than outweighed by fresher breath and a healthier mouth.

Some people criticize Waterpik technology saying that it's messy, noisy, and that the machines take up too much room in the bathroom. By far, the majority of users, however, say that the drawbacks are far outweighed by the advantages. They maintain that they're thrilled to have a tool that will help them overcome gum disease and avoid periodontal disease and tooth decay, which both result from untreated gum disease.
