Water Pik recalls product that carries ADA Seal

July 18, 2018

By Michelle Manchir

Water Pik, Inc., in July voluntarily recalled its Sonic Fusion water flosser/toothbrush.

In May, this product earned the ADA Seal of Acceptance after meeting all program requirements for toothbrushes and for powered interdental cleaners. The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs accepted the product, noting it is safe and has shown efficacy for removing plaque along the gumline and between teeth and helping to prevent and reduce gingivitis.

Water Pik plans to produce and sell the product again, according to the company. It will continue to have the ADA Seal.

For more than 125 years, the ADA has helped consumers identify safe and effective dental products. As early as 1866, an ADA committee prepared a statement on toothpaste that questioned whether extravagant marketing claims were "an imposition on the public." Today, more than 200 over-the-counter dental products carry the ADA Seal.

Seal product submissions must include data from clinical and/or laboratory studies that demonstrate safety and efficacy according to product category requirements developed by the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs.
