Your hygienist or dentist might suggest you use a water flosser, so what are they?

A water flosser is an oral health appliance that has been designed for use during your dental care routine at home. The water flosser delivers precisely controlled water pressure and pulsation rate necessary to deliver clinical results.

A targeted stream of water removes plaque, food particles and bacteria, in a way that's more effective and comfortable than using string floss. 

Waterpik® are a brand of water flossers that we currently stock at Market Place Dental.

Waterpik® invests significantly in clinical research and product development. This research shows that the Waterpik® Water Flosser is clinically proven to reduce gingivitis, remove plaque and improve gum health. 

  • Easy to use. Just point the flosser tip between your teeth and along the gum line, 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 gum line, 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.

There are various tips available for a Waterpik® Water Flosser that can help with braces, implants and for people with crowns, bridges and veneers.
