Meine Name: Should anything else be used in the waterpik? I have heard of people mixing in hydrogen peroxide but wouldn't that destroy gum tissue more? What about baking soda or tea tree oil?
PaducahDentalCare: Thanks for sharing. Waterpic. If you have crowns, partials or implants it is a good idea to add a waterpic to your daily routine. The pulsating water action helps to dislodge plaque between the crevices and gum line.
Mark DC: My DDS said this is wrong -- he said try to get ABOVE the gum line and shoot DOWN -- or I would drive gunk deeper. Maybe he was talking about my problems, and not yours. But it makes sense, try to get the junk OUT.
Native722: So we are suppose to fill up with warm water?
Tristan Olson: Yeah... So I used to JUST brush not floss are anything, cause at the time I didn't know the consequences then one day my gums started bleeding, today I got it checked and found it it's gum disease, luckily it's just the first stage which is reversible, heh.
Tommy Harris: Interdental brushes are FAR superior - they are quicker, silent and not messy.
Body By PT: Do you still need to brush if you start using a waterpik?
Zee: my favorite part was the threat at the end
beckychave: Wah great video! I'm gonna treat myself to a water pick! :-) I have a better attitude about my teeth now lol
Steve Aviles: Amazon, $44
tehspeed: would it be a good idea to put a cap full of hydrogen peroxide in the reservoir mixed with water?
yingdiskette: The man at the end has the crowns?
I believe my issue is periodontitis and would like to ask the good doctor here if its possible for one affected gum area to infect the other in a time span of a year?
tristanauspride: was gonna say that haha
Truth Seeker: Ebay, amazon and prolly in some drug stores.
Mauricio Finol: I used to have a lot of bleeding when using the toothbrush, after using the waterpik now I don't bleed at all. %100 recommended
Bacon Eggs Flag: Does my shower head can work the same way as the waterpik ?
Joyce Weaver: Thanks for the info. I have the same pik, works great
locutus0985: I'm trying to decide on the best tip to use. The plaque seeker tip and toothbrush tip both have bristles. Wouldn't those be better than the jet tip because bristles would help? Since the plaque seeker tip is a lot smaller than the toothbrush tip I'm wondering if that would be the best one cuz you could get into smaller areas and brush stuff away.
