Waterpik is slightly different from dental floss and toothbrush we use twice daily. Waterpik plays important role in taking care of oral health and hygiene. Debris accumulated in between teeth and gum lines are knocked out by high pressure water. However, you must not replace a toothbrush and floss with Waterpik. Combination of all three takes complete care of your oral health and hygiene. You can enjoy fresh, clean teeth with regular use of Waterpik.
Base of the Waterpik is filled with water. You can control the water pressure by looking into the dial. To make yourself comfortable to the water pressure, you must keep the pressure down. You can adjust the pressure and set it at a comfortable level.
While using the Waterpik, you need to lean over the sink. Button on the shaft regulates flow of water. This mechanism prevents splashing of water in the mirror and bathroom. Drips of water from your mouth will come out in the sink, when you lean forward.
You can squirt your gum line using Waterpik. You should pay more attention to the inaccessible areas in teeth. You should concentrate on front gum line, as it is difficult to reach out difficult areas.
Off button on the Waterpik shaft can be pressed to spit out water remaining and brought back to the base. Traces of water remaining in your sink can be drained out in the sink. The Waterpik should be emptied completely to prevent accumulation of mold or bacteria in it.
A Waterpik is certainly a good idea when you want to take the extra step of keeping your mouth clean and fresh. This advanced tool is a good substitute for traditionally used dental floss.
Compared to brush and floss, Waterpik is capable of reaching out to spaces between gums and teeth, which was beyond imagination before. The risks of plaque, dental complications, and cavities reduce substantially with regular use of Waterpik.
Waterpik is much more fun and compared to flossing people love to use Waterpik more frequently. The device fits in the fingers easily and can be turned inside mouth without any fear of getting stuck between your teeth. For many, keeping grip on dental floss is quite difficult. The futuristic, fun device motivates people to clean their mouth daily, rather than skip cleaning due to laziness.
You can vary strength of water in a Waterpik while cleaning your mouth. Strength can be reduced, in case you are suffering from the problem of tooth sensitivity or in case there is, something dodged in between your gums and teeth. A manual toothbrush can cause gum pain. The entire task becomes easy with Waterpik on the other hand.
Flossing becomes difficult for those wearing braces. Waterpik on the other hand offers huge respite to those wearing braces. Implants and dental fixtures increase the risk of getting plaque or food stuck inside teeth. Veneers and crowns make it difficult to remove foods stuck in small spaces between tooth and fixtures. You can effectively get your teeth and gums cleaned with Waterpik and do not stay under the fear of damage.
