String Floss + Waterpik = No Bleeding Gums

Jamie J. Alexander on November 11, 2019

Boynton Beach dentist Jamie J. Alexander says, “I’ve written about the value of water flossing with a Waterpik® and about how to clean your Waterpik before, but today, I am truly excited to report that more and more of my patients are getting the results they have been seeking by string flossing and then also using a Waterpik daily.”

Preventing Bleeding Gums with a Waterpik

If you have been flossing in the traditional way and still have some gum bleeding, I encourage you to add on the daily use of Waterpik. You can solve your gum tenderness problem yourself! Many patients who needed to have their teeth cleaned every three or four months, now only need to have them cleaned at six-month intervals.

“Even patients who travel and only use string floss while on the road are getting improved results when they use Waterpik at home,” says Dr. Alexander. “If you use Waterpik three out of every four weeks, I think you are going to be very pleased with the results.”

Where Can You Get a Waterpik?

Where should you get your Waterpik? Dr. Alexander recommends our local Costco store in Lantana, FL. “The price is right. And while you are there, you might want to pick up a Philips Sonicare Electronic Toothbrush. That’s the kind I use and recommend.”
