Water Pik launches new flosser
FORT COLLINS, Colo. Water Pik, a developer and manufacturer of personal healthcare products, has developed the new Waterpik Water Flosser, which uses pulsating water to clean between teeth and below the gum line.
According to the manufacturer, the University of Amsterdam conducted a clinical study comparing the Waterpik Water Flosser with traditional string floss and the Water Flosser was clinically proven to be twice as effective as traditional floss for improving gum health. In another study recently conducted by the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, the Water Flosser removed 99.9% of plaque from treated areas.
"Our data shows that 80% of Americans don't floss regularly and 75% have some form of gum disease, so these new clinical research results are extremely relevant, because they show that people finally have an easier and more effective alternative to traditional floss," stated Jay McCulloch, VP of marketing for oral care products for Water Pik.
