When the box arrived, we opened it. As we lifted it out, my husband and I both simultaneously chirped, “Hey! I had one of those growing up!” We even had one when Jake and Zac had braces. But those Waterpiks were nothing like the WaterPik Ultra WaterFlosser.
WaterPik has come a long way. Take a read of these amazing features:
6 unique tips
Advanced pressure control system with 10 settings
5 to 90 psi
Reservoir capacity of 90 seconds+
Pause button on handle
Can be used with water or your favorite mouthwash
Smaller and quieter than previous models
Covered reservoir with built-in tip storage
With many mouths it has become obvious we each have our own oral hygiene needs. Li’l Man is a snaggle tooth, though as of late, he’s become quite toothless. He wants independence but brushing his own teeth is far from his forte. He has gaps in his teeth and then they get really tight towards the back. Traditional dental floss has failed–even getting trapped between those tightly nestled teeth towards the back. Not fun!
Li’l Man was elated to get to try the WaterPik Ultra WaterFlosser first. I doubted this was going to be effective. I feared he’d be afraid. Turns out that he loves it and he has been cleaning his chompers diligently since ours arrived.
The initial use was exciting for him until the first squirt and he clamped his mouth shut and said, “I taste blood!”
I explained sometimes this might happen but to keep going, as his gums got healthier the blood would be less. He went with it and when he spit into the sink, a casing from a popcorn kernel was revealed! He couldn’t believe it exclaiming, “I haven’t had popcorn for a really long time. I wonder where that came from!”
In spite of a little metallic taste that first squirt, Li’l Man thinks it feels GREAT on his teeth and gums. It reaches into crevices Mom can’t reach. He’s even turned up the pressure as his gums easily adapted to the squirt–especially since the popcorn kernel relieved itself from its hiding place.
