Where to Find the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser

Now, let’s focus in a bit on the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser. Many stores and online merchants like Amazon  actually have an entire section devoted to Waterpik. The least expensive ones start around thirty or so, and going up to a range of just over $100. If you don’t have a Target or Kmart locally, I’m sure you can find water picks  at your drug store. Alternatively, you can browse a selection of online merchants here, or you can check out the selection at Amazon. The good thing about Amazon is that you don’t have to leave home, and they will usually get your purchase to you in two days or so.

 

Visits to the Dental Hygienist will be Less Painful

When I go for my cleaning twice a year, the dental hygienist likes to use an UltraSonic something or another that vibrates and makes a very annoying noise. Everytime I go for a cleaning I wish I had brought a headset and my music to drown out that awful piercing in my ears. I really dislike that Ultrasonic scaler. If they don’t use that scaler, then the hygienist uses that hook, the dental instrument that they clean out underneath your gums with. That’s no fun either. They’ve really got to scrape if they don’t use that scaler.

Recommended by Most Dental Hygienists

The main argument of the hygienist is that if we don’t accumulate all the food along the gum line of our teeth, then they wouldn’t need to scrape a lot or use the Ultrasonic scaler. I am sure that your hygienist, like mine, at one time or the other recommended that you try the Waterpik. The Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser is very effective at cleaning exactly that area”, right along the tooth gum line, and in- between the teeth where I get all this stuff accumulating.

 

It’s best to keep your waterpik right by the sink because you got to fill this with water every time. It’s going to be sitting in the same place also because it’s plugged into the wall.

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser Combo Pack

Many merchants offer a Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser combo pack. Essentially, you get two Waterpiks for the price of one. Included is the main Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser counter top unit and a secondary portable unit. If you travel a lot, as I do, then the portable on comes in quite handy. You can buy a combo pack that includes a portable one and a stationary one. The combo pack is a great idea even if you don’t travel. It comes with two sets of tips as well. That means you can give one to your spouse or another family member.

Key Features

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser

Let’s demonstrate how it works. On the handle, they’ve got the ejector button to pop out the tip. There is a pause button which a lot of people say is great. This feature contrasts with other models which require the user to have to turn off to stop the flow of water. You can just pause the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser and restart the flow of water with a simple touch of a button. And another really cool feature is that the top part rotates. This means that you can turn the spray head to different parts of your teeth without having to put your hand at all different angles. You can just twist it around, turn it in, and turn it out.

What’s included with the

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser

The adjustable power setting on the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser allows you to control the amount of power you want to wash your teeth. There is an included plastic case which has slots where you can fit in all your different waterpik heads. The tip portion is different on each head. One of these heads is an actual toothbrush. Two of the included tips are identical, and these are their standard tips to go on it. There’s one with a little white collar and a little blue collar, so you can tell them apart. There are also specialty tips for orthodontics and crowns as well. To insert the tip you push it, and then keep pushing till you get a click. Basically there’s a little spring- action that clicks and locks the tip in place. There’s also an ejector button which releases the first spring and then you can pull the rest of it out.

How to Use your

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser

To use the Waterpik Ultra, you fill up the tank reservoir just about all the way with warm water. Then, you take the handle on which you have attached the ejectable head and you place it into your mouth before you turn the machine on. If you turn it on before putting the handle in your mouth, then water squirts all over. There’s a smaller tank down below that has to fill up first before the water starts coming out.

Video Demonstration

Check out the video to see an outside view demonstrating the angle of the tip to the teeth and gum tissue.

A straight on, 90-degree angle is all that is required. Just remember you want the water to shoot along the gumline and straight through the space in between the teeth. The video demonstration shows an easy and mess-free technique for using the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser. Fill the reservoir with warm water. Select the tip you want to use. For regular daily use, I use the Jet Tip. Select the power setting. Lean over the sink.

With the tip placed in your mouth, turn the unit on. Keep your mouth slightly open to allow the water to run out. Slowly progress around to the front teeth, and then the back teeth on the left side. Now inside to run the water jet along the gum line at the same angle. You can press the blue button with your thumb to pause the water flow while you switch from the top teeth to the bottom teeth.

Removes all Food Particles from Under Gums and Between Teeth

Now, this certainly isn’t a substitute for brushing your teeth. However, it does help along the gum line and between the teeth, but to just get the rest of that crud off of the surface of your teeth, you still need to brush. But what is amazing about the Waterpik is that food particles start falling out of your mouth that you never knew were there. It’s amazing the kind of stuff that gets stored under your gums and in the crevices between your teeth.

The Water is a lot faster than flossing and less painful.
