H2ofloss Water Dental Flosser vs HydroFloss

Often the question comes up when comparing dental oral irrigators:  Which one is the best?

In this comparison we consider the  H2ofloss to the HydroFloss oral irrigator

Both are oral irrigators whereby you use a 'jet' stream of water to help clean your teeth and gums.
In this regard they both do the same thing.

However, there is an additional component to consider.

The HydroFloss oral irrigator contains a magnet.   This magnet puts a charge on the minerals that are in the water causing the plaque and bacteria to become less adhesive.  This means that the HydroFloss does a better job of removing plaque and reducing tartar build up between your regular office visits.

Before you go doubting the science behind the magnet, you should understand that the magnet is proven to be more effective.  (Statistically significant).

The studies were done by third parties and published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology. There were studies done on two occasions, proving the effectiveness of the magnet over not using one.  Again, the results were statistically significant and both research groups came to the same conclusion.  You will get about a 50% greater reduction in tartar buildup between your regular office visits by using the HydroFloss with it's magnet rather than without one.

That's real science and it shows how the HydroFloss is effective in a way that other dental oral irrigators are not.   Does this 50% make a difference?   You bet it does.  

I've spoken with many people over the years.   On one occasion I spoke with a person who's gums became healthy after using the HydroFloss.   She switched to another brand of irrigator later and her gums become unhealthy again.   Then she switched back to the HydroFloss and her gums became healthy again.    Of course, that is just one person and one case.  So you can dismiss it if you want.

However, I know the HydroFloss made my gums healthy again.   And I have spoken to many people over the last 8 or 9 years or so and I hear similar stories to my own.   Why doubt what has worked for so many people?

The HydroFloss saved me from a SRP or Scaling and Root Planing Treatment.  That's $1500 (and often more).

If I had to choose an irrigator, knowing what I know about the HydroFloss, I would, of course, choose the HydroFloss oral irrigator and no other.

If you want to read more about the HydroFloss, you can do so here. 

Of course, if your reason for getting an irrigator has nothing to do with the health of your gums and teeth, you could go with the less expensive  H2ofloss.  Or other brands that you can often find at your local pharmacy.

And if I weren't concerned about the health of my gums and teeth, that is probably what I would do to save a few bucks.
