Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser

Updated on August 5, 2013

Waterpik Flosser Review

We all know how important oral hygiene is and one thing that we should really do more of is floss our teeth to get rid of all of those little bits that our toothbrush struggles with. The problem is that in the past you only had a product that resembled a wire to move between your teeth, but that has all changed thanks to the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser , but how good is it and what does it actually do?


Water Flosser Specifications

As the name suggests, this is a water based flosser from Waterpik and what it does is it uses pressure of between 5 to 90 PSI to remove the plaque, debris, and bacteria from around the gum line. It does this by using a series of pulses, 1200 in a minute to be exact, and with the item you get six different attachments with these being the normal jet tip, a special plaque seeker tip, an orthodontic tip, a Pik-Pocket tip, and finally a tongue cleaner so every eventuality is actually covered. Apart from the tips you also get ten different pressure settings to choose from and there is the option of adding a toothbrush to it as well so it can double up and do two jobs rather than just the one. With regard to the water, then it has a reservoir that means it can last over 90 seconds and this is going to be more than enough time to do the job in question without rushing too much either.


How Effective Is The Waterpik Water Flosser

Waterpik have spent a lot of time perfecting this particular product, but in order to determine just how effective it is, then it is perhaps best to concentrate on some facts and figures from the dental world.

First, it has been clinically proven to be twice as effective as the age old string floss method for helping you look after your gums and just using it for three seconds on an area has been shown to be 99.9% effective at removing any debris or plaque. Also, if you have braces, then it is seen as being three times as effective as the string floss approach when you use the orthodontic tip and this really will help to stop a whole host of problems on its own so it is clear that using the Waterpik Water Flosser model really will make a big difference to your dental health.

The Negatives

It has to be said that any negatives associated with the Waterpik Ultra Flosser are really nothing major because some things that you might not like include the mains cable being a bit shorter than you may have liked, and the fact that it does get some getting used to having this water pressure in your mouth as it may remind some people of being at the actual dentist.

The Positives

There are of course a number of positives linked the Waterpik Ultra Flosser and one of the major ones is its versatility due to the number of heads that can be attached. This means it is perfect if your teeth are healthy, perfect if you wear braces, or perfect if you have fillings, crowns, or anything else that is connected to your teeth.

Another positive is that everybody can use this including people that are unable to use string floss because their teeth are very close together. You will also then be amazed at how smooth your teeth feel after using it and even though it has ten pressure settings you will tend to find that you only need it in the middle of the range for your teeth to be left feeling amazing.

Finally, you will find that it is very quiet, and even though it is forceful it does not damage your gums as it is surprisingly gentle, but still clears away the debris and bacteria.

      My daughter who has braces uses a Waterpik. It's much easier than manual flossing.
