Water Pick vs. Dental Floss | Grove City Center for Dentistry

Water pick or Dental Floss: Which works better?

woman flossing

Patients frequently as us, “Which should I use, a water pick or dental floss?”  
At our practice, our patients who use a water pick or dental floss, along with brushing, have cleaner teeth and a lower incidence of periodontal disease. Overall, they have healthier teeth and gums. The key is that they have to use the water pick or floss and brush regularly.

Our first recommendation to all of our patients is to brush and floss twice a day.

For patients who have periodontal disease or who have a hard time using traditional dental floss, we typically recommend using a water pick.

We recommend and sell the Waterpik Water Flosser at our office. 

The Waterpik helps clean food debris and plaque from between the teeth and around the gum line by flushing water between the teeth.

Most of our patients still use regular dental floss.

Traditional floss is still the most recommended and most commonly used type of flossing system.

In terms of flossing, the Waterpik is similar to an electric toothbrush.  Our patients who use an electric toothbrush, like a Sonicare, instead of a manual toothbrush, have healthier teeth and gums. So, ultimately, we would recommend using a flossing system like the Waterpik over traditional flossing.

But, regardless of what type of floss system you use, we want you to floss every day because your toothbrush only hits the tops and sides of your teeth.  When you don’t floss, decay build up between the teeth because you are not getting rid of the plaque and food debris.”

  5. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

    I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my
    thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally
    wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Many thanks! Melody

  6. Have you ever thought about including a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    But think of if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips,
    this blog could certainly be one of the very best in its field.
    Superb blog!
