Why Smiles By Design Recommends Waterpiks And Other Dental Tools

The Most Advanced Water Flossing System

Here at Smiles By Design we remind all of our patients that great hygiene starts with brushing and flossing daily. But, unfortunately many of our patients forget to floss. Brushing is very helpful but it’s not the end all be all of dental hygiene, you should floss daily. For some of our patients flossing is awkward, messy and difficult to do it the correct way. For those patients that have a difficult time flossing our doctors recommend using Waterpik.

Why Do Dr. Axvig and Dr. Dywer Recommend A Waterpik?

Waterpik is a water flossing system that makes flossing fast, easy and effective. It does all of the work allowing you to have healthier gums and brighter teeth in only about a minute a day. It’s the number one recommended water flossing system within the dental industry. It’s known for performance and quality. Many of our patients have come to love and appreciate it’s effectiveness.

Sonicare Toothbrush

You’re probably familiar with electric toothbrushes — you can buy one with a head that rotates at any drugstore. Sonicare leaves those oscillating brushes behind, using sonic wave technology to vibrate as many as 30,000 cycles per minute to break down plaque, making it easier to brush away.

Why Do Our Doctors Recommend Sonicare?

A Sonicare brush is a fantastic addition to any oral hygiene routine, but because these brushes are so gentle on the gums, we particularly recommend it for patients with sensitive gums or gum recession, or for those with a tendency to brush hard. They are also excellent for anyone over the age of 40, because they are excellent at blasting food out of deeper gingival pockets (the spaces between teeth and gums).

How Can I Get These Dental Tools?

Your teeth are unique, so it’s important to have an oral hygiene routine that works best for them, which is why there are several different models of Sonicare toothbrushes and Waterpiks to choose from. Whether you’re toothbrush shopping for someone with sensitive teeth, gum recession, or if you’re simply interested in going electric with your toothbrush, call 701-223-5500 or email us so we can help you choose the best Sonicare brush for your needs.
