Not long ago I had dental surgery on a molar to stop bone loss. This experience was distressing because I thought I had been taking good care of my teeth by brushing and flossing regularly. The brushing and flossing, however, hadn’t eliminated the pockets that my dental hygienist periodically pointed out either. But I kept brushing, flossing, and using a rubber pick. Then my husband came home with a Hydro Floss and as he used it he kept telling me how clean and fresh it made his mouth*. When he saw my experience with the dental surgery, he started encouraging me to use the Hydro Floss to see if it would help. At first I was dubious. It’s just water, I thought. How can that help? Well, I don’t know exactly how it works, but, long story short: I used the Hydro Floss in addition to my regular routine, and about six weeks later went to my six-month teeth cleaning appointment. My hygienist was very surprised and pleased to see there was a measurable improvement in my gums*. My dentistry was quite pleased too. As for me, it’s nice to know that there is something more I can do to maximize my dental health.
