Water Flosser found superior to Air Floss in study

A recent clinical research study, conducted by BioSci Research Canada, have found that Waterpik's Water Flosser is more effective than Sonicare's Air Floss in removing plaque and reducing gingivitis.

During the four-week study, the 82 subjects were given the Waterpik Water Flosser or Sonicare Air Floss, plus a manual toothbrush, to use as part of their daily oral care routine.

The clinical results demonstrated that the Waterpik Water Flosser was 80% more effective than Sonicare Air Floss for overall gingivitis reduction and also 70% more effective for overall plaque removal.

Water Pik clinical research director Deborah Lyle said virtually anyone and everyone can benefit from using a Waterpik Water Flosser.

"The Water Flosser is unique in its ability to remove plaque from those areas that are typically missed by traditional brushing and flossing, thereby reducing the patient’s risk for gum disease," Lyle said.
