Fun to use and seems to work well
on 31 March 2015
This is the only water flosser I have used so I can't compare it to other Waterpik models or other brands. However, I really like it!
I was advised by my hygienist that water flossers are more effective than using traditional floss so I set off doing some research on Amazon and decided to try out this one. It had great reviews and we have nowhere the larger Waterpik would be able to stand, so the Nano was the obvious choice as would be able to sit on our sink, just below the shaver socket.
It is really fun to use! My teeth feel much cleaner after using it (and brushing of course) and it actually encourages me to brush my teeth more often, which is a very good thing. It's not too messy and if you do splash a bit of water around, it's only water! I wouldn't use it if I was just about to go out and was wearing a posh top though.
The water tank holds enough for you to go around your whole mouth. I've never had to refill it during a floss, however if you put it on the highest pressure you may possibly run out of water before you've finished. The pressure can be varied from 1 to 3 and there is a large difference between the settings so you can get it just the way you like it - I have it set to about 2.6.
This has definitely become a part of everyday life and I think I will always use a water flosser from now on. I haven't seen the hygienist since getting this, so I will be interested to see the difference in my teeth and gums at my next checkup!
UPDATE: I've just been for my 6 monthly check with the dentist and hygienist, and they were both very impressed with the improvement in my gums especially. My teeth didn't need any work doing to them and I had a lot less scraping than usual so we were all very pleased! :-D
