Not the only solutio: Gingivitis usually needs more than water-piking to eliminate the biofilm the bacteria produce from around the teeth. Its one part of the treatment. Use floss to disrupt the biofilm, use rinses like Chlorhexidine and Listerine to actively suppress bacteria and brush for at least 2 mins concentrating at the gum line. Many people brush the tooth structure but do not clean thoroughly at the gumline
