Good and Bad Bacteria?
Did you know that your mouth has both good and bad bacteria? The good bacteria helps produce saliva to keep your gums, bone and teeth healthy. Increasing amounts of bad bacteria leads to gum disease, gingivitis, gum recession, periodontal disease, bone loss and ultimately tooth loss.
I'm sure you have seen ads for mouthwash claiming to treat Gingivitis. While it may help kill some of the bad bacteria, it isn't getting into the gum pocket where most of the damage occurs. It also kills the good bacteria which is necessary for good oral health. In order to treat early stage Gingivitis you must get treatment into the gum pockets. The easiest way to accomplish this in your home is with a Xylitol Water Flosser.
It is very common for people to have Gingivitis. Up until now there hasn't been an effective tool to minimize the bad bacteria in our gum pockets where the damage begins.
WELdental is the only water flosser on the market with our patented WELtip Xylitol Toothpaste Delivery System. You place a WELtab into a small container at the base of the WELtip. WELtab PRO with Xylitol tablet incorporates Xylitol to kill bad bacteria and not disturb the growth of your good bacteria. Regular use of this tablet will decrease the amount of bad bacteria and whiten your teeth safely.
Beginning stages of periodontal disease
If you do not treat this condition effectively you will not only experience gum loss, but also bone loss. No amount of mouthwash, flossing and brushing will effectively treat mid to late stage periodontal disease. If your dental hygienist has told you that your gum pockets are 4, 5 or higher then you are on your way to tooth loss.
