The rise in popularity of oral irrigators or “water flossers” as they are more commonly called has slowly been replacing the use of dental floss for a number of reasons. They are faster, easier to use, and a lot less painful. Another more common reason that people prefer water flossers are sensitive gums and the negative effects for those with dental implants.
One company that knows the importance of oral health, WaterFlosser.org, has been providing reviews and other free information on what these machines can do for the public. The spokesman of the site, Jeffrey Atkins, gave a statement about water flossers and how they can help people with dental implants.
“Experts have found that people with dental implants are at risk for developing peri-implant mucositis (an inflammatory reaction in the tissues surrounding an implant), causing swelling and mirroring the symptoms of gingivitis. When caught early and treated nonsurgical, mucositis can be reversed. If not, it can lead to peri-implantitis, which increases the risk for implant failure.”
The team believes that, along with the advice from their doctor, the most important thing is self-care for people with dental implants. Whether it’s due to positioning or designs, dental floss may not be an option for people with dental implants and it’s often not ideal.
Water flossers have been tested and found both safe and effective for cleaning the areas around implants. These devices pump water through a refined point at the tip with incredible pressure to clean every inch of the mouth in seconds.
Atkins added, “The reason most people prefer a water flosser is that they save money in the long-run and they are simply more effective. It’s easy to see why water flossers are the preferred choice for those that suffer from sensitive teeth and gums and people that have dental implants of some kind.
