Dental implants are great for replacing missing teeth or securing prosthetic appliances like dentures in place. Properly caring for these titanium posts is important because healthy bone and gums are key to prolonging their lifespan. Incorporating water flossing into your home care routine will help keep your dental implants in pristine condition for decades.

What Is A Water Flosser?

When traditional flossing isn’t possible, like in the case of some dental implants, a water flosser, also known as a “Waterpik” is the perfect alternative. This small device consists of a water reservoir tank and a handheld nozzle attached to a small hose. It dispenses a blast of water, removing unwanted particles in your mouth such as bacteria, food, and plaque from hard to reach spaces.

How To Use A Water Flosser For Dental Implants

Using a water flosser without getting water everywhere may take a little practice. But once you get the hang of it, using this device will make your home care routine quick and easy.

To make the process a little less messy, lean over the sink and keep your mouth closed when activating the nozzle to spray. Don’t hold the button down, but rather, release it to stop the water from dispensing, move to the next position in your mouth and press the button again, producing a pulsating action as you move throughout the oral cavity. Different models may not allow you to turn the water on and off, so just plan on plenty of practice.

Water Floss Your Dental Implants Daily

To ensure that your dental implants are staying as healthy as possible, the professionals at Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists recommend that you use a water flosser daily and always schedule regular checkups.

The office is very friendly and very professional. My dentist is Dr. Doug Yoon and on my very first visit he introduced me to the entire staff that would be assisting with my care, which made me feel confident that I had chosen the right practice. It has only gone uphill from there. I love that place!!
