Product Description

Product Description

The Rio dental water jet is an oral irrigator that flushes out food debris and the bacteria responsible for plaque, held between the teeth and below the gum line. High-powered pulsating water penetrates much deeper in between the teeth and below the gum line than can be achieved by either brushing or flossing. With regular use as part of your normal tooth care regime, it will help to prevent gum disease, improve oral hygiene and provide a stimulating massage to the gums.

Why use the Rio dental water jet?

Tooth decay

Plaque is one of the underlying factors behind tooth decay. It is a colourless, sticky layer of bacteria that builds up on the surface of the teeth that reacts with the sugars and starches found in the foods we eat and drink. This reaction produces acids that attack the tooth enamel, weakening it and leaving it vulnerable to the development of tooth cavities. Decay can occur through careless brushing, causing plaque to gather in the grooves on the tops of the teeth (the biting surfaces). Plaque and food particles can also build up in between the teeth where a toothbrush cannot reach. The high-powered, pulsating jets of water produced by this oral irrigator will penetrate deep in between the teeth, flushing out any hard-to-reach particles of food debris or bacteria. If plaque is left to build up on the surface of the teeth and the areas not protected by enamel, cavities will quickly develop. Using an oral irrigator as part of your tooth care regime is an effective way of preventing any further build up.

Regular use helps prevent gum disease
Gum disease

Regular cleaning and brushing of your teeth, in between and below the gum line, should be an essential part of your dental regime to help prevent gum disease. If plaque build-up is not removed regularly, the bacteria in it will produce acid and toxins, irritating and damaging the teeth and gums. At the earliest stage of gum disease, symptoms may include soreness, swelling, inflammation and bleeding. If left to develop any further, more severe symptoms will occur, such as the deterioration of the gums and bones that support the teeth.

As symptoms at this early stage are initially less visible and therefore harder to detect alone, regular visits to your dentist must be made so that dental examinations can be carried out. The key is early detection, because once the disease has started, the damage is irreversible. Later symptoms develop into swollen gums and pockets are created. The gums begin to fall away from the teeth. The teeth become very sensitive and gums easily bleed when brushing. These stages become more severe causing pus in between teeth and gums, the roots to decay and loosen, leading to the eventual loss of teeth.

How to use the Rio dental water jet

Before you begin, ensure you have read and understood the precautions and warnings. The Rio water jet is not for use by children under 14 and should be kept out of reach of children and pets. To ensure oral hygiene and avoid infection, the jet attachments are for single person use. Use the water jet in an appropriate area near a sink and shaver socket.

Step one
Step one

Align the key on the jet attachment and push firmly into the notch in the wand. Rotate clockwise to fix in place. The jet attachment will appear side-on in relation to the wand. With the wand in its base, plug the power adapter lead into the underside of the unit and a shaver socket. Power level 4 will illuminate.

Step two
Step two

Lift the lid on the unit and carefully remove the water chamber. Rinse the chamber thoroughly with warm water first and then fill it up with water from the cold tap. Note that 500 ml of water will give at least two minutes worth of cleaning. 50 ml of water is the minimum level required for the Rio water jet to operate.

Step three
Step three

Once you have filled the chamber with water, put it carefully back into the unit and close the lid. Ensure the ON/OFF switch on the wand is in the OFF position before you start then press the motor activation button to turn the unit on. You will be able to hear the motor start up.

Step four

Before using for the first time, jet through a full chamber of water into a sink. Remove the wand from its base, place the jet attachment in your mouth and lean over the sink.

Step five
Step five

Push the switch on the wand to the ON position to initiate oral irrigation.

Step six
Step six

Keep your mouth slightly open and hold your elbow at mouth level so that the water can run back into the sink. Hold the jet attachment a few millimetres off the teeth. Move it slowly around the mouth, directing the jet of water around the gum line and between the teeth. Ensure all areas are irrigated.

Step seven

After use, turn the switch on the wand to the OFF position and return to its base. Press the motor activation button on the unit to turn the unit off. Empty any excess water from the water chamber.

Step eight
Step eight

Remove the jet attachment by rotating anticlockwise and pull out. Place it in the jet attachment storage area. Tip away any excess water in the top of the wand.

Changing power levels

To change the power level/water pressure, repeatedly press the power level selection button to select the level required. Note: If you want to cease oral irrigation at any time, ensure the switch on the wand is in the OFF position before removing from your mouth.

    I have waited some time in giving a review as I wanted to see my dentist's reaction since using this irrigator and it was very good indeed. I am so pleased with this product as I have very crowded teeth which are extremely difficult to clean, I have had to use dental tape, tepe sticks, mouthwash and my dentist would still insist that I wasn't brushing properly. Not any more. This product gets a good thumbs up, it won't let you down.

    After several Waterpiks (WP360 and WP450 rechargeables, which both failed to hold their charge in less than a year, and the mains powered WP100) I was looking for something better and discovered the Rio Dental Water Jet. Ordered on a Thursday evening and it arrived 3 pm the next Saturday thanks to HDNL and Amazon's brilliant Super Saver Free Delivery. Extremely solid and well made with a plug designed for UK shaver sockets and a sensibly large 600ml reservoir. Appears to be designed and made in UK, which is a refreshing change. Early days but initially a very satisfying purchase that seems to be robust and efficient at what it does.

    I've never had a water pick before and would definately recommend the idea to anyone. Your teeth feel so clean afterwards. Even after brushing, the amount of bits cleaned away is astounding. I don't expect to have my teeth cleaned again by a dentist. Unfortunately, this model is extremely noisy and only after 5 weeks the unit is playing up. The water carrier is not sitting properly on the unit so that the water fails to pump through. For it to work I have to apply pressure to the water container, so that it sits on the unit tightly. Next time I'll spend a little more money.

    After a bit of checking on google, it was clear that a lot of people buying this type of device were buying the aquapik then reporting having problems with rechargeable batteries failing quite quickly and small water tanks on handsets. I haven't used that model so can't add anything to those comments.

    The Rio was very well priced on Amazon compared to elsewhere, and I chose it because it has mains power (4ft cord with shaver plug), 600ml tank on the base unit, and four power levels, all with a pulsing water jet without a silly price tag. The unit is 15cm wide so depending on the design of your sink may just fit on it, it also comes with wall fittings.

    I haven't needed more than level one, it has plenty of power and quickly clears any food trapped in narrow gaps between teeth.

    So unless you don't have a power socket in your bathroom within four feet of a sink I can't think of a reason not to recommend it.

    Bought for my husband to replace a more expensive but quickly faulted (sigh!) one. He is very happy about it. I tried it once - it comes with 4 attachments - and I have to say it is really effective. So far so good!

    Excellent value for the price, less than half the similar Braun / Oral B product. Also has direct jets which I find to be more effective rather than the "air spray" ones which don't focus where you point them. The charger can be unplugged from the unit and has a power pack type plug which has shaver socket pins. I also tried the Waterpik product but the big drawback with that one is that the plug needs to be used in a mains 3 pin socket. I'm very pleased with the Rio in comparison to both other types on the market.

    Absolutely brilliant device, much better than flossing, more thorough and no pain, add mouthwash and you probably dont need to brush as well (I still do in case anyone who knows me reads this!)Its like a mini pressure washer for your teeth. I LOVE it! BUY BUY BUY
