I hate flossing, so I just don't do it. Unfortunately, I learned the hard way what happens when you don't floss. I recently went to the dentist and found out what happens when you don't floss — you get cavities in between your teeth. I also learned that I have gum inflammation and that the bottoms of my lower teeth aren't getting brushed enough. My dentist and discussed how I need to change my oral care, because what I am currently doing is obviously not working.
One of the changes I made is to use the Waterpik Ultra Dental Water Jet. This dental water jet actually will be solving most of the problems I am having. Waterpik dental water jets are clinically proven to be up to 93% more effective at improving gum health. It will allow me to remove bacteria between my teeth and below my gumline. The water jets also reduce gingivitis and gum health.
I love how small this is. It easily fits on my sink especially since all the tips are kept in a compartment on top of it. The six tips are color coded, so you can easily figure out which one does what. You've got two standard tips, a tongue cleaner, a pik pocket that rinses your gum pockets, an orthodontic tip to use if you have braces, and a toothbrush tip (my favorite). I love that I can take care of my gums and my teeth without too much extra work. On the handle, there is a pause button that allows you to easily stop and start and water coming into your mouth. I'll be honest, it takes a little practice to get use to using this. However, if it's going to save me pain and time at the dentist, it is worth it!
If you are looking to improve your dental health, I have to recommend the Waterpik Ultra Dental Water Jet.
