WATERPIK®’s SIGNIFICANT ORAL HEALTH BENEFITS, ESPECIALLY FOR IMPLANT WEARERS

News

11 Apr 2019

Using a toothbrush is not enough, as it only covers 60% of the surface of the tooth. For dental implant wearers, rigorous daily oral hygiene is necessary for a successful treatment outcome. 

Water flossing by direct application of a pulsating stream of water or of another solution—like mouthwash—is indicated as a complement to brushing for implant wearers, thus ensuring optimal daily oral hygiene results. S

everal studies show that water flossing with Waterpik® improves the following periodontal parameters in patients with implants: 

• Reduction of gingival bleeding by 77.3% after 14 days of use, and by 81.8% after 30 days(1)

• The addition of a chlorhexidine-based mouthwash in water flossing with Waterpik® in patients undergoing peri-implant maintenance allows for greater reduction of bleeding (62%) and of inflammation of the gums (45%), compared to the use of a chlorhexidine rinse alone(2). 

For a successful dental implant treatment, strict daily oral hygiene is essential. Water flossing is very useful during peri-implant maintenance thanks to the benefits obtained. 

In addition, the use of water flossing with chlorhexidine helps prevent and control peri-implant disease. Perio·Aid® is ideal for this.
