The best approach to Periodontal Disease is to avoid it. Until recently the focus has been on Plaque when the actual source of the problem is the Bacteria that creates Plaque. Plaque is involved as it creates a safe haven that encourages the spread of this harmful bacteria.
If you are experiencing Gingivitis you need to take it seriously. The progression from Gingivitis to Periodontal Disease can happen before you realize it. While your gums can regenerate in a low bacterial environment, the bone loss may be permanent.
The WELFLOS M is the best water flosser for those who have severe Gingivitis or Periodontal Disease. The system is focused on lowering the Plaque Bacteria levels with the addition of the UV storage compartment. When you store your WELTIPs they are sanitized for the next use. This is an additional step to insure you win the fight against this harmful microbe.
Water floss with WELTAB twice per day, in the morning and at bedtime. This is very important because you want to keep your bacterial count as low as possible so your gums can heal.
We also recommend that you use the SoFresh Antibacterial Flossing Toothbrush. Its bristles are made with a material that is less susceptible to bacterial build up. Always use a Xylitol based toothpaste.
Your dentist may have already recommended deep cleaning and other in office treatments. It is best to take their guidance seriously.
