I’ve had a lot of trouble with my teeth over the years. They’re very close together and that doesn’t make it easy to floss. Usually, floss gets shredded but I keep trying anyway. Still, I wanted a better way to know I was getting between my teeth, so I was thankful when Waterpik sent me not one, but TWO items for my Holiday Gift Guide this year!
This unit is impressive, and kind of louder than I anticipated one of these types of things would be. Don’t ask why I anticipated that it wouldn’t make a lot of noise, I guess I was really just that uneducated about the product. The minty tablets that come with the unit aren’t too bad tasting, but they are just a little weird at first. Not as strong as minty toothpaste, mouthwash, or gum, and with a little twinge that I can’t really explain. It’s not the minty twinge, that I expected, I just can’t explain it.
Either way, I have to remember to use this more often. As when I am done my mouth feels GREAT! I brush first (of course) and then go at it with my Waterpik. Our bathroom sink is sorta low down, so I have to squat awkwardly to be bent over the sink. So… I don’t really have pictures of me using it. Our downstairs bathroom also doesn’t have any sort of counter space. So I have to be very careful when I am using this too. It holds a lot of water and I floss until the entire container of water is empty. I’m still on just the first setting, with sometimes moving it up one notch.
I’m sure this one was more expected to be a “on the go” type unit, however since Kat also has pretty close together teeth I wanted to help her out too with her flossing game. She also tends to manage to shred floss while just trying to floss normally! Sorry kiddo. ^_^;
The Sidekick works very well too I’ve got to say! Sure, it doesn’t work on whitening her teeth or anything, but it does floss very well and leaves her mouth feeling amazing. She was very happy just after her first time. I look forward to keeping our smiles brighter and better than before thanks to our Waterpik products.
I plan to look into getting some of their Nano-Sonic toothbrushes too, to even better my game. I’ve had too many dental problems and have been much to lax over the years, so it’s time to take care of this aspect of my health as well.
If you have someone in your life that could use some help, or just loves to take care of their teeth. Or just want something health featured in your gift giving this year, I highly recommend checking out Waterpiks wonderful lineup of products.
