Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator

At the Center For Breath Treatment we strongly recommend our patients use the Hydro Floss oral irrigator machine as an excellent way to eliminate bad breath problems and to promote a much healthier oral environment. This unique dental irrigating device is being recommended by more and more dentists because of the beneficial effects of oral irrigation in the treatment and prevention of periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay, and halitosis. Even if you suffer from the more mild form of periodontal disease known as gingivitis this device will be of tremendous benefit in reversing that disease process. Those patients who use the Hydro Floss in conjunction with our breath treatment program routinely achieve the best results of all our patients, and they also tend to get the longest lasting results. They also tend to achieve the highest levels of self- confidence of all our patients.

How does the Hydro Floss Oral Irrigator Work?

This high-tech device combines magnetohydrodynamics with the properties of an oral irrigator. It looks similar to the traditional WaterPik® dental irrigator, but is as different as night and day. The reservoir of the Hydro Floss oral irrigator is filled with simple tap water and as the water travels through the magnetic fields within machine it actually produces ionized water molecules. These ionized water molecules may look and taste like regular tap water but they are a different molecular structure after being ionized. Irrigating the teeth, gums, and tongue with the ionized water provides an oral environment that disrupts the mechanism bacteria and tartar use for adhering to the surfaces in the mouth. Its effectiveness is not based upon removing plaque and particles with a high pressure stream of water the way a WaterPik® does. In no way should the Hydro Floss be compared to a WaterPik®. So how does the Hydro Floss!" machine work?

The ionized water molecules produced by the Hydro Floss oral irrigation system prevents the attachment of the odor producing bacteria responsible for halitosis, and plaque and calculus which are responsible for gum disease and decay, by actually repelling the bacteria, tarter. It produces somewhat of an invisible coating throughout the mouth that you can't see, but can feel. Clinical studies have actually shown an almost 50% reduction in bacteria and a 65% reduction in calculus in the mouth through the use of this device, (see article in The Clinical Journal of Periodontology, May 1993). Because all surfaces in your mouth are repelling the bacteria and tarter, your teeth and tissues will feel as if you just had your teeth professionally cleaned even 6-8 hours after using the device! Additionally you will also not have to awaken each morning with the typical film of plaque on your teeth, or experience the normal build-up of plaque on your teeth as the day progresses because bacteria (plaque) isn't being allowed to attach in your mouth. The Hydro Floss dental water jet will significantly prolong the duration of which you remain halitosis free while providing a clean fresh feel like you've never experienced before. At the same time it is preventing gum disease and even decay from occurring.
