Do you know how to properly use your Waterpik? Read on for correct Waterpik use. Your hygienist is sure to see a difference in your teeth!First – Remove your Waterpik from under the counter and dust it off!  So many people have them but are not using them!

1.      Fill up the tank with warm water.

2.      Add a capful of hydrogen peroxide to the well.

3.      Turn your dial to a setting of 4.

4.      Hold the Pik between the teeth for 5-7 seconds.

5.      Allow the water to work for you by going slowly.

6.      Use one well of water for the lower teeth and one for the upper teeth.

Correct Waterpik use—when combined with brushing twice per day and flossing—is the ultimate in home care. Your hygienist will notice the difference.
Each time you see your hygienist, make sure that you get a full report on how your tissue looks compared to last time. Remember, a few 4mm measurements are okay but ultimately the best report has many 1, 2, and 3mm measurements with no bleeding!
