Waterpik WP-450 Ultra Cordless Dental Water Jet Product Review

February 03, 2012

Leaving the dentist after a teeth cleaning is always a refreshing feeling.  My teeth are clean, spotless, no plaque, and shiny.  After I get home, I maintain my oral care by brushing twice a day and flossing everyday but after a few months, the plaque builds up and I can never get the same type of clean that the hygienist provides. Luckily there are additional oral care routines that I can partake in and inexpensive tools to keep my teeth in good shape. For the very first time I used the Waterpik ultra cordless dental water jet.  I have never used such a fancy piece of equipment before but it was a great new experience.  When I am sitting in the dentist chair, I have always wanted to take home some of the equipment used, such as the water flosser and the air vacuum.  I never thought I could actually buy these products for myself.  The Waterpik is cordless and needs to be charged like a cell phone.  There are 2 pressure settings and comes with 4 tips (classic, orthodontic, plaque, and tongue).  I used all of them just to see the differences.  The plaque and orthodontic tips had small bristles to get around your gums and teeth.  After I charged the waterpik overnight, I filled it up with some water and was able to get to my daily flossing routine. I did feel like I was at the dentist and received an excellent cleaning like the hygienist.  The waterpik does take some time to adjust but at least it was cordless.  The other awkward moment was when the water just drips out of your mouth.  This is where the air vacuum would come into place as if I was at the dentist.  Overall I was able to clean my teeth and it was a nice refreshing feeling.  I probably would not be using the waterpik every night because it is a little more time consuming then just flossing my teeth the old fashioned way. But the results of the waterpik are much more noticeable than traditional flossing.  The high pressure of the water really shoots out onto your teeth and is able to clean out food particles and hopefully removing the plaque buildup. I noticed that I could even fill up the waterpik with my favorite mouthwash and use the tongue tip.  Now this is a very useful suggestion and I can really get a hold of bad breath germs. I plan on using the waterpik every few days since it does require a  little more work than traditional flossing. Rating: 4 stars out of 5 The Waterflosser Cordless Plus from Waterpik is new movement in flossing. Sleek and compact, the Waterpik Waterflosser Cordless Plus features an advanced ergonomic design with non-slip grip and easy slide power and pressure control. Clinically proven to be up to 93% more effective than manual flossing at improving gum health, this oral irrigator thoroughly cleans deep between teeth and below the gumline. The tip rotates 360 degrees to reach all areas of the mouth. Use the Waterpik Waterflosser Cordless Plus for 1 minute per day, before or after brushing for a cleaner and healthier mouth.
