The Best Flossing Tool Might Just Be The HydroFloss

What is the best flossing tool?  

The HydroFloss irrigator is probably the best flossing tool there is.  

I can say that with confidence because of the results I have obtained from using it. 

Once upon a time way back in 2005 or so, I was diagnosed with 'moderate' gum disease.  The dentist and hygienist recommended a SRP treatment.  It is also knows as a Scaling and Root Planing Treatment or a 'deep cleaning". 

After doing a little research, I realized that this might not be the best solution.  It is expensive and often needs to be done again in 1 to 3 years.   It might be that the underlying problem never gets addressed.   Hence, you have the need for repeat treatments. 

We have always been told to floss

Even though we have always been told to floss, a problem remains.  Dental professionals tell us that approximately 3 out of every 4 people have gum disease right now.   That's a lot of people.  

Understand, that I am pro flossing.  I floss with string floss daily.  But if flossing were the end of the story for preventing gum disease how could it be that 75% of people still have some?  

By the way, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss by far.   So, it is in our best interest to get tooth and gum care right. 

The Best Flossing Tool

To finish the story I started above.  I tried everything to avoid that treatment.  I delayed that treatment for, I think, over a year, trying different things.  

Every time I went back, they said I still needed to get that treatment. 

Then I discovered the HydroFloss  .  After using it heavily for a few months, I went back to the dentist and this time both the dentist and hygienist were amazed. 

I was told, whatever you are doing, keep it up - and you don't need that treatment any longer.   I was very relieved and felt a bit triumphant.   What astounded me later is that the dentist didn't ask or seem eager to know what I did.  I thought that was strange and I still find it odd even to this day.  

So, if you ask me what the best flossing tool is,  it is the HydroFloss.  

Since that time,  as you may guess, I have been selling the HydroFloss to customers.   After hearing the stories of those customers, I have found that I am not alone in my experience.   

Customers have reported back to me with similar experiences.   I am very pleased to share this great flossing tool with others. 

Do I still string floss?   Yes, I do.  I feel it is important to use both.  

Why is the HydroFloss the Best Flossing Tool?  

The hydrofloss has been scientifically validated through peer review and 2 studies about it have been published in The Journal of Clinical Periodontology.  

These published research report showed that the special hydromagnetic quality of the HydroFloss was about 50%  more effective at reducing plaque and tarter buildup than an oral irrigator without the magnetic technology in it. 

This more effective plaque and tartar reducing ability gives your body's natural defenses a chance to do what it needs to do. 

The results have and can be measured via periodontal pocket depths.  3mm or less is considered good.  Generally speaking, most dental professionals will consider your gums healthy when the pockets are 3mm or less. 

In my example, I had some 4s and 5s and I think one 6 millimeter pocket.   When those shrunk to normal levels the dentist realized that I didn't need that treatment any longer.

Is There An Easier Way To Floss When You Have Braces?

Flossing Around Braces

This is a difficult one for sure!  Of course, you want to get all the advice you can from your orthodonist and dental hygienist.  

Hopefully, they recommended oral irrigation to you.  

What Is Oral Irrigation?  

It's simply using a machine to sends water to clean in, around and between your teeth.  This can get to areas that you might not be able to hit with regular dental floss.  And it may help to do a better job as well.  

This can be particularly useful if you have braces.   

Here is a video that explains more: 

How Does It Work?  

You simply allow a flow of water to flow into your mouth via a tip that is connected to the machine. You want to sort of bend over the bathroom sink so that the water flows into your mouth and then out again into the sink. 

You generally point the tip (without touching the teeth or gums) towards your teeth.   I personally like to move the wand (tip) in a pattern over my top teeth (front and back) and then my lower teeth (front and back) and I just keep following that pattern until I run out of water.  

Why Is The Hydro Floss The Best - Especially When You Have Braces? 

Yes, you definitely want the HydroFloss over other irrigators.   The reason why is that the hydrofloss employs a special technology that other irrigators don't  

Because of this special technology, you get a greater reduction of plaque and tartar buildup between your regular office visits. 

Since plaque and tartar are the enemy, you want to use the machine that does the most to reduce them from building up.   This minimizes the chances that the bad bacteria have to cause harm to your teeth and gums.  

So there you have it - if you want to improve your ability to keep your teeth clean and gums healthy while you are enduring your braces then:

Flossing And Brushing May Not Be Enough To Protect Your Dental Health

Not Enough For Most People

Many people believe that proper brushing and flossing are enough to stop or prevent gum disease and cavities.  I am going to attempt to explain why that may be true sometime but is not true MOST of the time. 

Perhaps you think that I am incorrect in saying that brushing and flossing are not enough?   I understand why you would think that.  After all, it is what we have been indirectly taught since the time we were children.

However, the basic fact remains:  About 3 out of every 4 people have some gum disease right now!  I did not make that up.  75% of people have some gum disease.  Ask any dental professional, this is the standard answer.  You might find some variation but 75% is the typical answer you will receive. 

Therefore, if 75% of people have some gum disease right now, then regular brushing and flossing must not work for most people. 

You Should Definitely Continue to Brush and Floss

Please do not misunderstand me.  You should continue to brush and floss because they are both important preventive measures that should not be overlooked.   It is important that you continue to do both.   

It is also important that you get your regular dental cleanings at the frequency that your dentist or periodontist recommends.  Those cleanings can really help you. 

However, nearly every dental professional will agree that what you do at home has the greatest impact of all on your dental health.    I think we just established that brushing and flossing, while important are not keeping MOST people from having gum disease. 

What Else Can You Do?  

 I have written a book on this subject entitled:  What You Should Know About Gum Disease : A Layman's Guide To Fighting Gum Disease ISBN:  978-0981485508

One of the most useful tools I have found for helping to stem the tide, reducing periodontal pocket depths and helping you to make your gums healthier is this home use machine.  

I have also written a free report about it called:  How To Stop Gum Disease In 4 Easy Steps.  you can get that free report HERE.  

Well, I think I have given you enough tools and resources to explore further if you want to.   

I can only say that I really do believe that a copy of my book belongs on every family's bookshelf.  When you consider that 75% of people have gum disease whether they know it or not, then in only makes sense that every family and most individuals need this information.
