I can report that daily use of the hydrofloss oral irrigator stopped my gums from bleeding.
I started using it shortly after my dentist said that I had gum disease. They wanted to do an under the gum cleaning also known as a ‘root scaling and planing’.
I didn’t want to get that treatment done even though they were willing to start ‘right away’.
Instead, I went out and bought a hydrofloss and started using it daily. By the next visit my gums had firmed up and were no longer bleeding.
Incidently, I had no idea that bleeding gums were a sign of gum disease until then. I suspect that there are a lot of people out there in the same boat right now.
Gum disease is a serious condition. Not only can you lose your teeth, but more and more studies are popping up that indicate that gum disease is either causing or contributing to other diseases in the body, including heart disease.
The open wounds or bleeding that is caused with gum disease may provide an open door past the bodies defenses – providing free access to the blood stream.
Consider that as long as the condition exists there is a continual flow of bacteria in the blood stream. It is easy to see how the bodies resources could be taxed to the limit under such a situation.
The hydrofloss stopped my gums from bleeding. Don’t neglect brushing and flossing either. However, brushing and flossing were not enough to prevent gum disease for me.
Again, the hydrofloss stopped my gums from bleeding, even at the dentist’s office during probing.
