Advantages of Waterpik

When I first decided to buy a waterpik(, my children straightened their teeth and I also didn’t have strong teeth. So at that time brushing my teeth was really important.

No matter how hard I brushed my teeth, cavities continued to form because food waste remains in places where my hands can’t reach. and no matter how hard I floss, it was not perfect. At that time, my dentist recommended using a Waterpik, so I started using it for the first time.

I heard that The use of a waterpik had following advantages. 

  1. Effective Plaque Removal: Water flossers use a targeted stream of water to remove food particles, plaque, and debris from between teeth and along the gumline. This can be especially beneficial for individuals who have difficulty using traditional floss or who have braces, bridges, or other dental work that makes flossing challenging.
  2. Gentle on Gums: Water flossers are generally gentler on the gums compared to traditional string floss, which can sometimes cause irritation or bleeding when used improperly. The controlled water pressure from a Waterpik can clean effectively without causing as much trauma to the gums.
  3. Reduces Gingivitis: Regular use of a Waterpik has been shown to help reduce gingivitis, a common gum disease characterized by inflammation and bleeding gums. The pulsating water stream can help clean deep into gum pockets, where bacteria often accumulate.
  4. Enhanced Convenience: Waterpiks are easy to use and don’t require the dexterity needed for traditional flossing. Some models even come with a variety of tips for different cleaning needs, such as orthodontic tips for those with braces.
  5. Great for Dental Work: Water flossers are especially effective for individuals with dental work like braces, implants, bridges, and crowns. They can help clean areas that are difficult to access with traditional floss.
  6. Improved Bad Breath: By removing food particles and bacteria from between teeth and along the gumline, Waterpiks can contribute to fresher breath and better oral hygiene overall.
  7. Customizable Water Pressure: Most Waterpik models offer adjustable water pressure settings, allowing users to customize the pressure to their comfort level and specific dental needs. This makes them suitable for people with varying sensitivities and gum conditions.
  8. Time Efficiency: Using a Waterpik can be faster than traditional flossing, which might encourage people to maintain a consistent oral hygiene routine.
  9. Fun and Easy for Kids: Waterpiks can make oral care more engaging for children, potentially making them more willing to adopt good dental hygiene habits.
  10. Reduces Staining: Water flossers can help remove stains from food and beverages, contributing to a brighter smile.

Classic Waterpik

So far, it has been about 5 years since I bought and used the Classic Waterpik. I took good care of the machine and used it without any problems for 5 years. The classic water pick had ample water capacity and various water pressure controls, so I used it satisfactorily. But I was always worried about the risk of electric shock at the bathroom because it was wired

But someday the part where the water came out was often bent. As a result  water line was broken and water splashed in all directions.

So, I wanted to change it at this point, so I bought a new model, Waterpik ION (WF-11K). The Waterpik ION (WF-11K) is wirelessly. So I do not have to worry about electric shock any more. Now I have been using it for a week and I am using it satisfactorily. In particular, it is a method of charging with a magnet. Moreover after charging is complete, there is a separate stopper to prevent the charging part from the Electric shock.

10 level water pressure

The strength of the water pressure is adjusted in 10 steps by turning the dial on the left side of the machine. So you can use it appropriately according to the condition of your gums. Even if my gums bleeds, I use it in 10 steps because I feel refreshed when I do it hard.

90 seconds per session

When one water tank is full, it works for about 90 seconds on average. It has a suitable size water tank that can evenly clean the entire mouth. And after 30 seconds, it stops working for a while to let you recognize the time.

The magnetic handle holder

The most convenient thing was the magnetic handle holder rather than waterproofing.  After use, I really liked that the handle was nice and attached with a magnet. As a result, I could organize the waterpik line neatly.
