Why Did My Dentist Recommend A Three Month Cleaning Schedule?

Your Dentist Recommended  A Three or Four Month Cleaning Schedule - Why?  

While I'm not a mind reader and can't tell you exactly why your particular dentist recommended more frequent cleanings, I can tell you the most likely reason. 

Many of periodontal pockets were likely at depths above 3mm.   

When periodontal pockets are at 3mm or less, most dentists would say your gums are healthy at that point.    The opposite is also true.  When you are above 3mms, most dental professionals would say you have a problem.   This might otherwise be called gum disease. 

The solution is simple.  Get your pocket depths down to 3mm or less and you might, depending on your dentist, go back to a 6 month cleaning schedule.  

Why [else] is this important?  

Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss.  Nothing else even comes close.   So, keeping your periodontal pockets down is crucial in the quest to keep your teeth for a lifetime of use.   

Accidents do happen, and can't always be controlled.  That's why they are called accidents.   Examples might include a blow to the head or a fall.    

Aside from accidents, you have at least some degree of control over whether you lose or keep your teeth for the rest of your life. 

Diet plays a role too.  You cannot overlook that.   And I do recommend you begin to learn about diet for your teeth.   You find out that what is good for your teeth may be good for the rest of your body as well. 

This is a digression. 

Let's Talk About Shrinking Those Periodontal Pockets

To answer your first question:  Yes, Periodontal pockets can shrink.  They can also get deeper.   Your end goal is to get to 3mm or less on every tooth.   No 4s and obviously nothing larger than that.  

The next logical question is how.   The simple answer is to improve your dental hygiene.  

As in most things, it can become more complicated from there.    Not everyone can control their gum disease, but most people can.  The vast majority can.   So, it is VERY likely that you are among those who CAN do something about this problem. 

I had the problem of deeper pockets way back in 2005.    Actually, I probably had them before then, but that is when I first learned that I had  'moderate' gum disease.    It took a bit of reading to understand what was 'really' going on.   

I ended up writing a book called,  "What You Should Know About Gum Disease, The Layman's Guide To Fighting Gum Disease".   This can short cut and simplify the learning curve.  

I Tried Many Things

I put off the 'deep cleaning'  or SRP or Scaling and Root Planing Treatment that the dentist recommended.   I wanted to find a way to solve this problem without undergoing this painful and oftentimes problematic treatment.  

I tried a lot of things.  I tried various mouthwashes and toothpastes.  I tried essential oils.  I tried oil pulling.   

Everytime I went back after trying what I thought might work, I was disappointed.  My gums had not improved and I still needed that deep cleaning treatment. 

Finally, I ran across something I thought was a long shot.   I got this machine and I used it a lot.  
When I went back, the dentist and hygienist were visibly surprised.

After what seemed like a long time of staring into my mouth, the dentist finally said:  " Whatever you are doing keep it up.  You don't need that treatment anymore.".  

That was a victory in more ways than one.   

This is what I used:

There is no guarantee that what I did will work for you.   But I do know it has worked for me and others that I have spoken too over the last 10 years or longer. 

I do provide a special coaching consultation to explain how to get the most out of your new machine.  But that is reserved for those who buy from the above link or  where I sell it.  Only when you purchase the machine from one of those two places are you entitled to the free coaching consultation.

Again,  it may not work for you and you should always be under the watchful eye of your dentist or periodontist (the go to specialist in gum health and disease). 

Stay healthy and well.

What Should I Use In My Hydro Floss?


There is no need to use anything at all in your HydroFloss, besides regular tap water. 

But some people really like the idea of having something.  

Click here for things you can use to add to your Hydro Floss. 

Tap water is suggested.   This is because there are minerals in the tap water.   The magnetic technology of the Hydro Floss acts on those minerals.

This is why distilled water is NOT suggested.

A better question is:  How do I get the most out of my Hydro Floss. 

You can get that answer here.

The HydroFloss - A Dental Health Secret That Has Remained Hidden

When I first encountered the Hydro Floss, I was in a bit of dental health trouble.

hydrofloss secret to dental healthMy dentist kept insisting that I needed a Scaling and Root Planing Treatment.  When I heard what this 'deep cleaning' treatment was about, I was a little suspicious about the long term effects.

I didn't want to experience this process and wished to find another way.  I tried several different things.  Nothing worked, including advice given to me by the dentist.

Finally, I tried the Hydro Floss.  I used it quite a bit.    When I went back to the dentist, she and the hygienist were visibly shocked.  

After looking in my mouth for a long time, the dentist finally said, "Whatever you are doing, keep it up.  You don't need that treatment any more."    I was delighted1

Later, I was a little bit irritated.  Why did the experts not tell me what would actually work to make my gums healthier?

Let's not say anything bad.  Instead, lets assume the reason was just pure ignorance,  just being truly unaware.

Since that time, I have found out that the Hydro Floss has helped a lot of other people.  I'm not the only one.   May not work for everyone.  Always be under the care of a dentist or periodontist.  They can verify the results or lack of for you. 

This is one of the biggest dental health secrets that 'almost' no one is talking about.   I hope to see that change.

The Puzzle Of The HydroFloss

hydro floss puzzle revealed
Yesterday, I talked to a nurse.  She has some periodontal issues.  She told me she had one 9mm pocket and a few 4s and 5s and yet her periodontist said she was in 'doing well'.   (At least that's what she said)

I have a hard time reconciling the facts that she gave with her claim that her periodontist said she was the best patient he had.   It doesn't add up, sorry.

I don't know what the reality is, I can only report what I heard from her.  My guess is that either she was confused or that perhaps there is a problem with that person.

Anyway, her concern was to get her gums healthy again. 

I explained that periodontal pocketing above 3mm is, generally speaking, considered unhealthy.

Many people are able to reduce their periodontal pockets - as measured or verified by their dentist or periodontist - by utilizing the Hydro Floss.  In fact, here is one example, which I also heard yesterday:  Read Claude's Story. 

How do you work with your periodontist or dentist on this?  That's easy.  You just get your periodontal pocket depths readings.   Use the Hydro Floss properly for one month and then go back and get your readings taken again.   Is it working for you?  Great, keep going.

Nothing works 100% of the time for 100% of the people.  That would be impossible.  But, if you use the Hydro Floss properly, you have a shot at improving your dental health - and objectively measured by your dental professional!  

That's the mystery / puzzle of the Hydro Floss.   It's right out in the open, yet so many people miss out on it and end up spending a lot of money on dental health problems that might not need to be.

Using The HydroFloss To Help Save Teeth

As I have mentioned many times before, I am a firm believer that every family could benefit from having a HydroFloss in the bathroom.

Make no mistake, it is not the same as any other kind of irrigator out there.  It is very special.  It does more to reduce plaque and tartar buildup between your regular dental cleanings than other irrigators.

The Benefits To You

hydro floss oral irrigator
Reducing that plaque and tartar buildup can often equate to better dental health, saving money by avoiding expensive treatments and helping to prevent dreaded gum disease.  The later of  which causes tooth loss. 

So, does keeping your teeth, avoiding expensive dental bills and helping to prevent the ravages of gum disease sound like a good deal to you?     Hey, it's your teeth and those of your loved ones we are talking about.

I didn't make it up when I said that gum disease causes tooth loss.  It really is the number one cause of tooth loss!  One very sad aspect of that is that many people have lost teeth and they still don't understand that the problem was due to gum disease!   That means they could lose even more teeth because the problem was never addressed at the 'root', so to speak.

You, of course, are smarter than that.   Loosing teeth is quite expensive as well!   A single implant in the US could cost a couple to a few thousand dollars!    How many teeth do you have? 

Saving teeth, avoiding or mitigating gum disease, and saving a lot of money are the potential benefits to having a Hydro Floss around!    Of course, you should always be under the care of your periodontist or dentist at all times.

Can The Hydro Floss Help Your Gums To Stop Bleeding?

Answer:   First,  if your gums are bleeding that is most often a sign of gum disease.  Go to a periodontist if you are already not under the care of one.   Be under the care of your dentist for this problem.

Step 1:  Ask your dentist or periodontist what your periodontal pocket depths are.

        a.  Generally speaking, anything above 3mm is considered unhealthy

        b.  Your dentist or hygienist should have these numbers.  You will use these numbers to compare your results after step 2.

Step 2:  Before proceeding, ask your dentist if this is ok to try.   Then, Use the Hydro Floss for 30 Days

        a.  Use the Hydro Floss twice per day.

        b.  Use two full reservoirs per use.

Step 3.  After the 30 days of following step 2,  ask your dentist or hygienist to measure your periodontal pocket depths again.  

        a.  Have they improved?   Great, keep going!

        b.  Have they all shrunk to 3mm or below?  That is even better!  Generally speaking, most dental professionals will say that your gums are healthy at this point.  Verify with your doctor.

After Your Dental Implant Has Been Placed

Read more about the Hydro Floss

One Implantologist told me that he had trained over 20 years ago and he was specifically told to put every implant patient on a Hydro Floss.    Of course, you want to collaborate with your own doctor (the one who placed your implant) about if and when to use this machine. 

You will probably  want to give your implant the best chance for initial and continuing success, of course.   
Therefore, I thought I would share this tip with you.   
If appropriate, you can get one now and have it on hand for when it is time to use it.

Hydro Floss Use - Should I Use Tap Water or Purified Water?

I received this question today, and I thought I would share it and the answer in order to help other people understand reality from fiction. 


I have been using the hydrofloss for years, but stopped bec. buying water for it became too expensive. understood that it was necessary to use purified water, which we did. now, excited to read on yr website that tap water is actually recommended. did something change, or did i have it wrong from the beginning? pls let me know ... was tap water always the right and recommended water to use w/the hydrofloss?

Answer:    Tap water has always been the correct water to use.   The magnet works off the minerals that are in the water.

The HydroFloss Is The Best Oral Irrigator

It's really true.  The Hydro Floss is the best oral irrigator.  You won't know the reasons if you are visiting here for the first time, so I will break it down.


The Hydro Floss uses a specially designed magnet to create a fantastic benefit based on the property change created on the minerals that are in regular tap water.   The magnet simply places a charge on these minerals and viola, you have a more effective instrument for reducing plaque and tartar build up between your regular office cleanings.

This could translate to

  • less cavities
  • less gum disease
  • less bad breath

Costs Savings

Given the amount of money these things cost us at the dentist's office, I think that you can't go wrong by reducing that plaque and tartar build up.

The Benefits Are Greater Than With Other Irrigators

I can say with confidence that the Hydro Floss can reduce the plaque and tartar build up to a greater extent than other irrigators.  Why can I say that?   The answer is simple: This ability has been documented not once, but twice in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology.    

That journal is a real, peer reviewed professional journal.  The research published is scientific and passes the peer review process.   These are not studies done 'in house' by any company.  The researchers are real researchers. 

You cannot argue about the validity of this research.  There were two separate studies done and they both showed similar, statistical significant results.   It's clear - the magnet allows for a greater reduction in plaque and tartar build up over other brands of irrigators.

The magnet is not just any old magnet.  You need the proper size and ratio magnet.  The one the Hydro Floss uses has been documented to work and work well.

3 out of 4 people have gum disease

There is a lot of gum disease in the world today!   Gum disease is the primary reason for tooth loss and expensive dentures or implants.  What if you could help yourself to prevent tooth loss by using your Hydro Floss every day?  

How much money, pain and recovery time might you save yourself over a lifetime by utilizing the power of the Hydro Floss?

Proper Use

To get the best results from your Hydro Floss, use two reservoirs, twice per day.  (four reservoirs total).  This is believed to produce the greatest effect for the most people.

So, I've told you a lot, but you might still have questions.  You can call us at 1-888-586-6849  to find out if the Hydro Floss is what you really want.

If You Have Dental Implants

I have known that many dental implant specialists recommend the Hydro Floss to their patients. 

I thought it would be nice to share this customer review with you:

Teresa wrote:  "The whole machine is wonderful and especially if you have implants and need to irrigate all those little particles.  Furthermore, I recommend this whole machine for the whole family. Keeps your gums intact."

Thank you for sharing your experience with us Teresa.

Portable HydroFloss

the hydro floss oral irrigator at Toothy Grins StoreI sometimes hear from customers asking about a portable Hydro Floss.   Unfortunately,  there is no such animal at this time.

If you want to travel with your Hydro Floss , I suggest keeping the original packaging that your new one comes in.   Then you can simply use that packaging to protect your Hydro Floss every time you travel.

That way, you do not have to be without your Hydro Floss even for a short period of time.

I know how much my customers love the Hydro Floss because they do not want to be without it for even a short period of time.

Again, I highly recommend the above method if you want to travel with your Hydro Floss.  However, if you must have a travel portable oral irrigator, you can get this one.  

The drawbacks to the portable irrigator is that it does not have the power, hydromagnetic action or the ability to hold as much water as the real Hydro Floss does.  

But, if you don't mind those drawbacks and MUST have a portable oral irrigator,  then I will understand.

After all, something is better than nothing.   I'm sure you will want to get back your hydro floss as soon as possible, if you are like many of the people I talk to.

If you have questions, give us a call at 1-888-586-6849.

What Should You Do When You Have A Missing Tooth - Video Commentary

click here for the original page this video is about

Hopefully, you don't have any missing teeth.  But, if you do, the lesson in this video is clear.  Do not leave the gap where a tooth once was alone. 

Something is needed there to keep the other teeth from shifting around.    Your dentist will help you with information and recommendation. 

Implants in the US can be around $2,000 each. 

Prevention Is The Best Answer

Saving yourself against tooth loss in the first place is probably the best answer to this problem.  We know that gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss.   

You may not be able to prevent an accident that causes tooth loss, but many times, you can stop or control gum disease and prevent it from taking one or more teeth. 

While brushing and flossing are very important and must be continued, sometimes you need something more.    

One tool that I have found to be very helpful (and many of my customers have too) is the Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator.
