Why Waterpik?

The easy & effective way to clean between teeth

Because brushing your teeth is not enough

On average, brushing your teeth alone only removes 42 percent of plaque from your mouth. This can lead to gum disease and bad breath. To remove plaque and food debris, dental professionals tell us to floss daily, but many of us don’t. That’s why Waterpik created the Water Flosser –the easy and effective way to clean between teeth!

Clinically proven results

The Waterpik Water Flosser cleans deep between teeth and below the gum line, reaching places that other devices might miss, reducing plaque by up to 99.9%.* This means that you can enjoy healthier gums, brighter teeth and fresher breath! The Waterpik Water Flosser also addresses specific dental needs including cleaning braces, orthodontics, implants and dental work such as crowns, bridges and veneers, as well as treating periodontal pockets.
