The HydroFloss Saved His Teeth

I heard a story about the creator of the Hydro Floss oral irrigator.   This was relayed to me by someone who was related to him at the time of this discovery.

He had visited a periodontist and that doctor told him:  "You are going to lose your teeth and there is nothing I can do about that."  Come back when they fall out and I will give you 'new ones'. 

I suppose that meant implants.  Which can be very costly.

Turns out this man worked in an industry where they were using magnets to keep a build up of debris from forming on the inside of pipes.   I don't know what they were transporting in the pipes, but the concept is what seems relevant.

This man then took another brand's oral irrigator apart and put some magnets inside of it.   He used this for a while.  When he went back to the periodontist that originally told him he was going to lose his teeth, that doctor told him he was better now!

He had saved his teeth and this is how the Hydro Floss came into existence.

Of course, I heard this story from a witness that lived with him at the time.  So, you are hearing it second or third hand.

Never-the-less, the Hydro Floss has helped me personally to improve the health of my gum tissue - as measured by a dentist and hygienist.    It has also helped a lot of other people that I have talked to over the last couple of years as well.

It is a powerful adjunct to your daily dental health routine.  And it can pay off big time.  It helped me to avoid a 'deep cleaning',  SRP or Scaling and Root Planing treatment.  In the US, these treatments can be very costly.

If you are able to keep your gums healthy, as measured by your hygienist or periodontist, then you have a great chance to keep your teeth for a lifetime of good service.  Avoiding gum surgery, expensive treatments, laser treatments and implants can really save you a lot of money over the long term.
