When I was a kid, we always used a Waterpik. For some reason, as I got older, I stopped using it. I’m not sure why. It’s a shame, because learning how to use a Waterpik properly can really improve your oral health. And as we all know, your oral health is tied to so many other things in your body.
I’m one of the strange ones that loves to go get my teeth cleaned. I just love the super clean feeling and my silky smooth pearly whites. The dental hygienist is always telling me one thing though – you need to floss better or floss more often. Blargh! Lectures, lectures!
My teeth are really close together. That makes it difficult to floss at times, whether it’s actually getting the floss down to the gum line or leaving little pieces of floss behind. Well…when I learned how to use a Waterpik, it gave me the uber clean feeling that I love without the floss frustration.
After using the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser, my mouth felt so clean. It felt like I had so much less debris hanging around in there. After using it for three or four days, it didn’t feel like I had any plaque, food, or anything else between my teeth. That’s totally worth the price of admission there.
About the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser
The Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser has 10 variable pressure settings. I thought that was great, as the sensitive places in my mouth could have less pressure and you can really go at the stubborn spots. It also comes with 6 different tips. In addition to the classic tip, there’s a tongue cleaner, a toothbrush head, an orthodontic tip that cleans around your braces, a pic pocket tip for dentures, and a plaque seeker tip. I loved the tongue cleaner, as I’m a long-time tongue brusher. Now that I’ve learned how to use a Waterpik with the tongue cleaner, goodbye tongue brushing.
The Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser has been clinically proven to be 50% more effective than traditional dental floss in the prevention and treatment of gingivitis. It’s also smaller and quieter than previous models and can be used with water or mouthwash. I had never even thought about using mouthwash with a Waterpik!
Once you learn how to use a Waterpik, you, too can have a healthier mouth and gums in just 14 days. Guaranteed.
