Did you know, half of all American adults have gum disease, which is the root cause of bad breath and tooth loss. To help prevent gum disease Glacier Dental recommends flossing daily, but many patients don't floss because string floss is difficult and time consuming to use.
As an alternative option, we offer patients to purchase a Waterpik, which is an easy and more effective way to floss. Simply point the flosser tip between your teeth and along the gumline and let it do the work for you. It only takes about a minute a day, which makes it easy to improve your oral health. As an added bonus, it removes plaque sitting deep between teeth and below the gumline where it's hard to reach with traditional brushing and flossing. It's shown to be 50% more effective than string floss!
Glacier Dental sells Waterpiks for $77 with a mail in rebate of $15, making the waterpik only $62. This is a great deal considering if you don't floss the consequences we can be thousands of dollars for periodontal treatment or tooth loss.
