Reviews for how to use the cord and cordless water flossers?

  • Connection of the device. It must be done in a completely dry environment, to avoid short circuits.
  • When filling the tank, the quantities recommended in the instructions must be observed for the device to function properly.
  • The number of available modes will depend on the model and the choice will depend on the user. Some will prefer low-pressure cleaning while others will choose more rigorous cleaning.
  •  You should know that the device should not be turned on until it is in the mouth.
  • Place the cannula in a position perpendicular to the axis of your teeth.
  • Start with your molars, then going from left to right or vice versa.
  • Aim carefully at the gingival groove and the spaces between the teeth.
  • Clean the inner and outer parts of your teeth.
  • Lean forward over a sink and let the water come out of your mouth when cleaning.

The different types of water flossers

  • The non-electric model: It connects directly to the water tap and works with the water pressure.
    • The advantages: it saves energy, it is silent, and there is no need to fill and clean a tank.
    • The disadvantage: it cannot be used with a mouthwash – and it is often less powerful than an electric model.
  • The family model: It is a fairly large device with nozzles for the whole family and a large capacity tank.
    • The advantages: significant autonomy and customizable nozzles
    • The disadvantage: this type of model is very bulky, and not all models have a wall mounting
  • The handset: toothbrush and dental water flosser: The main advantage of the handset is the saving of space in the bathroom. The 2 in 1 has the wind in its sails, and this is also the case for dental water flossers. The handset offers a complete and thorough cleaning thanks to the combination of a dental water flosser and an electric toothbrush.
    • The advantage: a significant saving of space when you want a toothbrush and a dental jet
    • The disadvantage: a little higher cost than a simple dental water flosser – but much cheaper than buying a dental water flosser + a separate electric toothbrush.
  • Travel dental water flossers / portable dental water flossers:  It is space-saving and has a reservoir integrated with the handle. It is practical and convenient.
    • The advantage: you can take it everywhere with you
    • The disadvantage: its low capacity and its unique nozzle

How to choose a dental water flosser?

  • Capacity: The capacity of the tank is one of the elements to take into account when comparing dental water flosser models.
  • Technology: you will have the choice between a single-mode model, provided with a water jet, and a model that combines the water jet and air microbubbles. It is less common. However, it optimizes the massage of the gums and reduces the anaerobic bacteria that can exist in the mouth.
  • Pulsations:  The power level can vary depending on the model and brand. Some brands opt for softness, while others rely on power. The number of pulses per minute can range from 1,000 to 1,600.
  • Pressure: it is adjustable on most models, using a graduated dial from 1 to 10 most often.
  • The tank: this is an essential criterion depending on the use you will have of your device. Depending on whether you want a model for the whole family or just for you, choose the tank capacity well. It varies from 120 ml to 1 liter
  • Power supply: you will have the choice between models on battery, mains or battery, therefore rechargeable.
