The 6 Best Water Flossers


I’m an orthodontic patient. The problem catches me called deep bite. You can imagine that the general shape of my teeth is like hand, which means my molars are short and front teeth are long. It leads to strong attrition of my front teeth and strong masseter muscle. I always feel face ache when I eat food. So I begin to wear braces for orthodontics.

How to keep oral health in the process of orthodontic, especially wearing braces? I’m that proud of the experience I will share next. I cannot leave the four things:
1. Electric Toothbrush
2. Water Flosser
3. Dental Floss
4. Flossthreader

The article will focus on water flosser. I don’t have idea of water flosser before I wear braces. My orthodontist recommends it to me. During orthodontics, the slit between the teeth becomes bigger. Food impaction is hard to avoid after every meal. I cannot describe how uncomfortable it is. Brushing teeth is useless on this condition, though it is significant. I bought a water flosser from then and it helps so much. The same, I cannot tell you how comfortable after food leaves my teeth. It is not only good for orthodontic patient but also for those who have oral problem like culculi. If you pay attention to your teeth health, it is not bad to have one. I will share some tips of how to pick water flosser and also some models in my lists before. Although I choose Panasonic finally for my small budget, you may not like the one I like.


1. If it is easy to clean and if the whole body is washable. I really hate some products that cannot be inevitable to water but don’t support whole-body washable. Bacterial will be born if you don’t clean it and it will go into your month. You need to be careful. Separated reservoir will be ease to clean.

2. Reservoir Capacity. It is not convenient if the water isn’t enough to finish cleaning.

3. Pressure mode. I’m worried about that the power is strong and I will feel pain, so I often use the weakest mode, even though I tried strong mode and it didn’t hurt me.

4. If it is portable. As an orthodontic patient, I cannot leave it even a day. I need to take them when I’m not at home.

Due to the good fame and brand effect, Waterpik is one of the best brands in the field of dental cleaning.

The reservoir can hold nearly 90 seconds of water or mouthwash, which is enough for one person to complete his daily teeth cleaning work.

It is a wired device, so you don’t need to charge it. So the disadvantage is that you cannot use it anywhere in the room.

There are 8 color options so that at least one of them will satisfy you.
