Water Floss Against Gum Disease!

 In News

We are always recommending good oral hygiene habits to our patients to prevent gum disease. This includes brushing twice a day and flossing! Adding a few more options such as mouthwash or a water flosser can also help with prevention and overall gum health. A water flosser can use a mix of pulsation and pressure to help get where your toothbrush or regular floss can’t. A popular water flosser company is Waterpik. If you already have gum disease, depending on the severity it can be reversed. Seek a dentist or periodontist for their advice. 


Remember to watch out for gum disease/periodontitis symptoms, which include:

  • Red gums that bleed easily (even during regular brushing)
  • Bad breath or a persistent bad taste in your mouth
  • Gums that are receding or pulling away from the natural gum line
  • Tender or sore gums 
  • Pus at the gumline 
If you have concerns about periodontitis, contact us at Niagara Periodontics in St. Catharine’s. We are your periodontal experts!
