What is a Waterpik Water Flosser and why should you use it?

The Waterpik Water Flosser is an at home alternative for string floss. Water flossers have a motor and pump that create a stream of pulsating water to flow through the tip and into your mouth. The water removes plaque, food particles, and bacteria. This is not only more effective, but is also more comfortable than using traditional string floss. If you do not typically floss, you may find using a water flosser much easier and more pleasant. In addition, clinical studies have proven that water flossers reduce gingivitis, remove plaque, and improve gum health! Here are 7 reasons you should use Waterpik Water Flosser!
