Water Jets or Oral Irrigators work using a pressurised stream of water or mouthwash to dislodge biofilm from the gum margin, the gaps between the teeth and periodontal pockets. Clinical trials suggest that using a water jet to compliment twice daily brushing results in a 93% improvement in gum health when compared to brushing alone.
While professionals believe we would all benefit from the use of an oral irrigator, they are particularly useful for those with braces, dental implants, crowns and bridgework. Most units come with a variety of different tips to facilitate specific types of cleaning, including; plaque removal, orthodontic and periodontal.
Summary of benefits:
- helps dislodge biofilm preventing tooth and gum disease
- low impact resulting in less bleeding and healthier gums
- effective in cleaning around braces, implants and bridgework
