The bleeding phenomenon of the gingiva after the first use of the Water Flosser is not an indication that the water pressure is too great to hurt the gingiva, but that the gingiva is inflamed.
Although brushing with a toothbrush can remove most food debris and bacteria from the gums and teeth, traditional brushing methods do not take care of the areas under the gums that connect to the teeth and the small Spaces between the teeth. Bacteria absorb nutrients from food residues, causing the gums to become red, inflamed and prone to bleeding when exposed to external stimuli. This is why bleeding occurs when a Water Flosser cleans inflamed gums.
