WATERPIK

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Waterpik.

When the package arrived and I showed it to my 14year old son, who wears braces, he was so excited and could not wait to try it out! Who knew that a Water Flosser would make him so happy? The first thing I noticed when I unpacked it was how compact it is. This is great for people like us who are short on counter space. With three kids sharing one bathroom, the small counter doesn't give us room for much. The Water Flosser tucks nicely into the corner.

The most important area of your mouth to clean is in-between your teeth. This is the first place bacterial plaque will form, and it is also the hardest to keep clean. Most people are familiar with dental floss, but waterflossers like Waterpik actually clean better than floss. Many people, especially my family, find them easier and more enjoyable to use than floss too. 

Waterpik makes several types of waterflossers including some just for kids. Personally, I like the countertop Waterpik Aquarieous Pro Water Flosser (WP-660), since it holds a good amount of liquid and I feel like I have more control over the water pressure than the cordless Waterpiks. It's the easy and more effective way to floss and the most advanced water flosser ever.

When you pick up your brand new counterop Waterpik from the store, which I highly recommend you do, find a good spot on your bathroom counter where you can plug the unit safely, and follow the included directions to get it set up.  


Here are the step by step instructions I use to keep my teeth and gums healthy.

Fill the water reservoir to the maximum allowable level with warm water, so hopefully you don't have refill in the middle of cleaning. Warm water is going to be much more comfortable especially if you have sensitive teeth. The water in the line might be cold if it has been sitting out, so you might need to flush the line too. If your gums are inflammed the high pressure might feel like too much the first few times you use it, so find a comfortable level and gradually work your way up.


Waterpik Closed Mouth

To avoid splashing, clean while slightly closing your lips and letting the water run out of your mouth into the sink, or while keeping you mouth totally closed and pause to spit out the water from time to time.


Waterpik Guide


It doesn't matter if you start on the top or bottom teeth, but make sure you clean both the cheek/lip side of the teeth and the tongue side. I like to start in the back and work my way around each arch.





Waterpik Tip Angulation

Place the tip at a 90 Degree angle to your teeth. Pause for a few seconds between teeth before sweeping along the gumline to the next area. Having the Waterpik on high power will flush things out nicely.








*Also don't forget to change the attachments every few months.

That's really all there is to it!
