I am a convert.
3 January 2015
Having spent the equivilent of a small new car on implants, I followed the advice of the hygenist and bought one of these. For the first week my teeth kept bleeding (a lot) when I used it, but a little less day by day. I am filling it with Corsodol, which I don't like the taste of but have discovered Corsodol Daily which isn't as bad. I find it easy to use, I keep my mouth closed so the mirror doesn't get coated with mouthwash spots.
I have been using it for a month now, twice a day, it is simple to use, no hassle like flossing. I have flossed after using and nothing comes out with flossing so it is doing it's job. I am booked in for teeth whitening next week but I may cancel as my teeth are so much brighter just by using this. When I first started using it, it felt like it might be too strong, but my gums have got used to it now.
I have now bought one each for both my husband and my daughter as they are both so impressed with it. I have also discovered the trick of keeping your tongue on the roof of your mouth to stop it being zapped.
I am going to buy one each for my husband and daughter when their birthdays come round.
It has quickly come round to part of my routine. If I don't use it for some reason, I can feel the difference.
I like that it can stay on the charger and it uses the same charger as the Phillips Sonicare toothbrush. (My hygenist also recomended the Braun Toothbrush but I have found that very agressive so I am using that only for one in four brushes, I only mention it because although the Braun has a different base, I discovered it will also charge on the Phillips one, but not vice versa)
The only thing they could improve is the filling cap. Too many times, I have had the flosser in one hand, unscrewed and filled the cap of the mouthwash and found I needed a third hand to fill it. I just need to remember every time to fill the cap first.
