This Waterpik Ultra Professional Waterflosser is the professional model which includes pulse-modulation technology for maximum plaque biofilm disruption (Floss Mode) and enhanced gum stimulation for improved circulation (Hydro-Pulse Massage Mode).
Water flossing is perfect for anyone who struggles with string floss, has braces or implants. It is also great if you have crowns, bridges or veneers.
How to use a water flosser https://youtu.be/4jGZTyMK–k Simply fill the reservoir with water (warm if you suffer from sensitivity) or your favourite mouthwash. Place the tip in the mouth between teeth with the tip pointing towards the gum line. Don’t turn on until inside your mouth – unless you want a mess! Tilt your head over the wash basin/sink with your mouth slightly open so the water dribbles out of your mouth, then turn on. Hold in each site for 3 to 5 seconds, then move on to the next interdental (in between teeth) space. You can use the water flosser from the cheek side pointing in toward teeth or from the tongue or palate side.
Gum problems? The Perio Pik pocket tip is great for cleaning gum pockets and root surfaces. Customers can buy these separately from Growing Smiles at https://growingsmiles.co.uk/shop/waterpik-waterflosser-perio-pik-pocket-tips/
Growing Smiles trivia – Waterpik water flossers were developed by a dentist and hydraulic engineer way back in the early 1960’s, the Waterpik received its initial patent in 1967 and has more than 50 clinical studies to support its use.
