Can Waterpik Water Flossers damage my gums?

Waterpik Water Flossers not only help to blast away the debris between teeth, they help improve gum health. Some people claim that their periodontal pockets have increase in size or have suddenly appeared out of nowhere. The reasoning behind this is that Gingivitis is by definition swollen gums, and by using the Waterpik Water Flosser the health of the gums has improved and the swelling has begun to shrink and recede, thus presenting your teeth and gums in their healthy state. Some people interpret this as a recession, when the swelling was disguising the recession that was occurring all along.
