Water Pick : What is it?

Water Picks

Water picks are dental cleaning devices that penetrate deep into the teeth crevices and gums. They deep clean teeth and gums by emitting pressurized water, mouthwash, or antibacterial oral solutions through various tips with water holes. They are focused over targeted teeth and gum areas to remove lodged food debris.

Water picks are ideal for those with braces, crowns, and other dental fittings. They are known to massage the gums well and prevent gingivitis, plaque build-up, and other periodontal diseases. They are used with different cleaning tips such as standard, cannula, and rubber.
