The HydroFloss is Not A Water PikHydro Floss is and how it is different from a Water Pik (or any other brand of oral irrigator). Many get the Hydro Floss on the recommendation of their friend or their doctor.
In the case of a friend, it is usually someone who discovered that using the Hydro Floss helped their dental health to improve. They realize it is saving them money over the long haul by reducing the need for expensive treatments. Dentists recommend it because they also know that it has a positive affect on periodontal (gum tissue) health.
Since 75% of people, according to dental professionals, have some gum disease, this becomes ever more important. Dentists and hygienists are on the front line, they see periodontal issues all the time, probably every day or multiple times per day!
Limit On Pressure
The HydroFloss is limited to 60 PSI an amount that is considered safe for gum tissue. However, many other brands of oral irrigators go as much as 50% higher. I've used the HydroFloss for many years now and believe me, the pressure is plenty strong enough. You don't need more and it is better to be safe than sorry. The reason the Hydro Floss works so well is:
The Power of the Hydrofloss comes from its magnet. The magnet places a charge on minerals that make it easier to reduce plaque and bacteria. Researchers found that this magnet resulted in a significant reduction of plaque and tartar build up between office visits, when compared with other brands of irrigators.
If it matters to you, this was documented twice in a professional, peer review journal called: The Journal of Clinical Periodontology.
Why I Bring This UpAs I mentioned before, most customers do understand why the HydroFloss is important to them because they have read the information about it in depth or they have a personal experience or their doctor recommended to them.
I do occasionally run into a customer who doesn't know the difference. I do not have the heart to say anything negative. I only bring up this topic because I do occasionally run into a customer who doesn't understand and I would like more people to be aware.
My most recent experience was with a customer who bought a hydrofloss because the man who sits next to him and his wife for all the basketball games (they have season tickets) told them how great the Hydro Floss was. The wife decided to buy a Hydro Floss.
The man called me and mentioned that he wanted to return the Hydro Floss because they did not realize it was 'like a water pik'. "Well, sir, it is really not like ... "
I hope by now, you understand why it is not 'like a Water Pik'. I'm not putting any brands down here. I am only explaining that there is a difference. In fact, we may start carrying Water Pik for those customers that really want them. But I digress...
This post is about the Hydro Floss, if you want to know more about it, I have put a lot of information on this page.
I respect all brands. I am just explaining the differences here between a HydroFloss and other Oral Irrigators. It seems that many people think of a single brand when they think of an oral irrigator and that brand happens to be Water Pik - which is a credit to their long standing in the marketplace.
In case you are wondering, I still use a Hydro Floss daily and intend to keep on doing so.
If you are still not clear on the differences, read this page or call me at 1-888-586-6849 . You can also read about the customer reviews.
