Waterjets, or Oral Irrigators, used instead of flossing, are
devices where pressurised streams of water are blasted out of the device to remove plaque
from the areas between the teeth not reached by brushing alone.
Tests have shown that if you
use a waterjet inconjunction with daily brushing, you will remove 99% more plaque than via
brush alone. Gum health is also improved by up to 93%, compared to brushing alone and
gingivitis and calculus are significantly reduced after only 2–4 weeks of use.
