Dental Water Jet
If your daily oral care routine consists only of brushing, your mouth is likely not as clean as it could be. Brushing is effective at removing plaque and food particles from the fronts and backs of the teeth and from along their biting surfaces, but toothbrushes typically cannot reach between the teeth. Without interdental cleaning, plaque can accumulate in the spaces that separate your teeth, harden into tartar and begin to contribute to both tooth decay and gum disease. Flossing is the traditional way to clean between the teeth and along the gum line, but many people find flossing to be tedious and difficult to do properly. Fortunately, there are other ways to remove those food particles from between the teeth and reduce the amount of tartar that forms. Dental water jets are the latest interdental cleaning technology and greatly simplify oral care while leaving the spaces between the teeth cleaner for an improvement in oral health that you can truly see and feel.
Promote Gum Health with Dental Water Jets
Dental water jets, or water picks as they are sometimes called, shoot pressurized water through a compact, narrow head. The design of the head allows you to aim the dental water jet directly at the spaces between the teeth, ensuring that the water flows through them. The force of the water loosens food particles that are trapped in the spaces and allows the debris to become washed away as the flow continues. A high quality dental water jet is highly effective at cleaning between the teeth and can be very beneficial for people who struggle to use dental floss. Unlike floss, a dental water jet can still clean between teeth that are misaligned and have very narrow spaces. In addition, dental water jets do not cause bleeding of the gums or discomfort and are not as messy as ordinary floss. Some dental water jets also include pick heads for cleaning between the teeth and brush heads that make it possible to clean the entire mouth with just one tool.
