The HydroFloss and Implants

The same dentist I mentioned the other day in this post,   mentioned that he thought the HydroFloss was good for implant patients.

This prompted a recollection on my part.   There was an Implantologist I spoke to a while back - might have been one or two years - who told me that when he was trained to do implants, he was told that every implant patient should use the Hydro Floss.

The dentist I spoke to more recently mentioned that the early implants had a particular problem - and that the Hydro Floss was particularly helpful for that problem.  In other words, the HydroFloss was reducing the number of failed implants.

So, anyway, the point is that the Hydro Floss has indeed been recommended by professionals for people with implants.

It's superior ability to reduce plaque and tartar build up also helps to protect the health of the remaining natural teeth and gums.

Gum Disease is a Serious Problem For Too Many People

Unfortunately,  too many people suffer from this problem.   Equally unfortunate:  Most of those people do not know they have it!

Since many people do not believe or think they have this problem, they naturally do not do anything about it.   This might lead to gum recession and tooth loss.

Gum disease is considered to be the number one cause of tooth loss.   Replacements, such as implants are quite expensive.  Implants don't always work the first time.  This requires a waiting period and a second try.

The costs are high and who knows what the pain and recovery factors are.   I would prefer to keep my own natural teeth than find out.  You?

Brushing and Flossing

 These are certainly a good idea and should be done daily or at your dentist's recommendation.   However, are brushing and flossing enough?

For some people, they may be all that is needed and they may never develop gum disease.   However, it is a mistake to think that people who have gum disease don't 'take care of their teeth', because that isn't necessarily the truth.

Of course, not brushing and flossing is probably going to help a problem develop.   However, as stated before, dental pros tell us that  75% of people seem to have some gum disease.

In my way of thinking, this says that brushing and flossing are not enough for all people to remain safe from gum disease.  Therefore, while important, they may not be the answer for the majority.

I say that because a lot of people think that if a person has gum disease it means they do not take care of their teeth.    In reality, a person can brush and floss 'religiously' and still develop gum disease.

Don't be fooled by that simple mentality, the problem of gum disease can be a bit more complicated - but not too much so.

What You Should Know About Gum Disease Part 12

Video:  What You Should Know About Gum Disease - Part 12

 Part 11

 The book, in its entirety can be found here:

I Wrote This Book For a Reason

One reason I wrote this book was to let the average person know some basic things that can really save them a lot of time, money and pain down the road.   I am convinced that people just need a little bit more of an understanding.  And that little bit can make a big difference.

Personal Experience

I was once faced with an expensive treatment and was given very little time to make a decision.
I felt pressured by the dental professional who was taking care of me.

I did not like that pressure and figured there had to be some answers out there to be found.

That personal investigation paid off by saving me approximately $1600 on an expensive treatment.  The treatment in question may also have had longer term consequences such as the need for more care (which probably cost more as well) in the future.

In addition, I have read some things about that treatment that leave me with a big question mark about the possible destruction of gum tissue as well.

Keeping out teeth for a lifetime of good use is very important.

Implants Are Expensive

They cost a lot and sometimes they don't 'take' the first try.   Then you have to wait several months before 'trying' again.   If you need one of these, one tip is to find a very experienced (at least ten years) doctor.  This can increase your chances of having it work the first time around.

But, they key point is to prevent the loss of teeth in the first place.   Perhaps the information that I packed into this book will help you to do just that?
