Anyone used a Oral Irrigator for gums? Any advice?
Hi all,

I've had a problem with my lower teeth getting gum disease. I tried brushing and flossing and am now using hydrogen peroxide as well.

I heard about an Oral Irrigator. Has anyone got one? Are they worth buying? rant

I've used a water pik for years and it basically replaces flossing. My gums are healthy and at my last dentist visit last month the dentist even commented about how good the gums looked.

It's your call but adding that to flossing could hurt.

That should read "couldn't hurt".

I have one and use it daily -- I add Listerine Whitening to the water (about 1/8) because I have a permanent bridge -- it really gets under it -- as well as my crowns -- blasts all that bacteria out.

Couldn't do without it.
