Implants and the Waterpik A Match Made In Heaven
by: Dental Assistant Team


Using a Waterpik (or any brand of water flosser) is an extra step that some patients really need to take when it comes to their daily dental hygiene routine, in particular those patients who have had dental implants.


Why, you ask?


Gum issues are often associated with implants due to bone loss that can at times trap food residue – residue that your toothbrush cannot easily reach.  The good news is you will not have decay, but to avoid gum irritation when flossing, a waterpik is the way to go!


It is of the utmost importance that the implant area is kept as clean as possible, and water alone will not sanitize the area and underneath the implant crown.  To help assist in the removal of bacteria, using an anti-bacterial mouthwash in the waterpik - instead of water – is an excellent way to accomplish this! This is an ideal practice for cleaning under bridges or in areas where teeth are missing.


We are not advocating discontinuing flossing… in fact, the combination of using floss along with the waterpik will stimulate your gums, keeping them strong and healthy.
