Receive Gentle, Effective Oral Irrigation Cleaning with Hydro Floss®
What is Plaque?
Plaque is a sticky material made up of food particles, saliva, germs and bacteria that attaches to the tooth at and below the gum line.
Why is Plaque so hard to remove?
Because of where it lives! Plaque that becomes a problem usually builds in the areas we fail to clean properly. We tend to neglect hard-to-reach areas, such as at and below the gum line, in between the teeth, and all the little nooks of the tooth. It is the plaque which has attached itself to other plaque that is so tenacious and hard to remove.
What is Calculus?
Hardened plaque! Well, it is not that simple and all plaque does not form calculus. However, when combined with other ingredients and factors, mineralized or calcified plaque is described as calculus. Calculus is usually more difficult to remove than plaque and can begin to form in as little as eight hours.
What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease is a disease of the supporting tissues of the teeth. There are two main stages of periodontal disease. The first stage, Gingivitis, is an inflammation or swelling of the gums. The second stage, Periodontitis, affects the ligaments and bones that hold your teeth. Ask your dentist about various symptoms of periodontal disease. It is the number on cause of tooth loss, but is usually treatable if detected early.
What is an Oral Irrigator?
The concept of oral irrigators is to shoot a stream of pulsating water out of a nozzle or tip. Irrigators are effective at removing food debris, germs, and bacteria which remain in areas that cannot be properly cleaned by brushing of flossing alone.
What is the difference in the Hydro Floss® and another Oral Irrigator?
According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology (May 1993; 20:314-317) titled "The Effect of Oral Irrigation with a Magnetic Treatment Device on Plaque and Calculus", the group using an irrigator with a magnetic device showed a 44% greater reduction in calculus volume (p<0.0005) and a 42% greater reduction in area (p<0.0001) over the group using an unmagnetized irrigator. Exactly what does that mean? It means that when tested against an unmagnetized irrigator, the Hydro Floss® is almost TWICE as effective.
Does it work like other Oral Irrigators?
All irrigators function similarly. However, Hydro Floss® will massage and caress your gums with a gentle pulsating stream of water. It will help or aid in controlling the formation of plaque and calculus, and will remove deposits at AND slightly below the gum line It removes food debris, germs, and bacteria from those hard to reach places leaving your mouth feeling clean and refreshed. Best of all, the Hydro Floss® is almost TWICE as effective.
But I just bought a Super Sonic Electric Toothbrush, do I still need a Hydro Floss®?
Yes! As good as some electric toothbrushes may be, they are still toothbrushes. They may clean the areas that they can reach much better than manual brushes, however, there are areas on the teeth which no toothbrush, manual or electric, can clean. these are the areas most likely to cause problems.

Plaque is a thin colorless, sticky bacterial growth. It accumulates at the gum line and between teeth.
Unremoved plaque hardens into calculus on the teeth. More plaque forms on top of it and hardens Gum tissues become inflamed, loosen from teeth.
Bacteria collect in pockets beneath. Pockets gradually deepen, inflammation worsens as root of tooth and soft tissues are destroyed by bacteria.
More and more tooth is exposed as pockets deepen. Tissue and bone supporting tooth are destroyed. Roots are exposed, tooth loosens and may be rejected as alien body.
Overtime, plaque and tartar can accumulate on the surface of the teeth, causing inflammation and periodontal pockets to form.
