Had only used this regularly for 2 weeks before a dental cleaning and the hygienist and dentist could both see an improvement in my gums.
The water pik does such a great job of removing plaque in those hard to reach places. It makes your mouth feel so clean and fresh after you've used it. The different settings are nice so that you can get used to the pressure of the pik or if you have sensitive gums. The water reservoir is not very big and I usually have to refill it multiple times during use but it's no big deal since I'm already at the sink anyway.
My breakfast consists of organic oatmeal with dried cranberries, cut up dried mango, and a spoon of ground flax seed. It's amazing how many seed bits are rinsed out from between my teeth with the Waterpic! My hygienist says I'm doing a great job. I thought I'd travel with it, so bought the travel case that goes with it, but have only taken on a trip once. Boy did I miss it! Brushing &flossing alone is not enough! Highly recommend.
I was a strong believer of traditional flossing with the string or toothpick. After I got braces it would take me 10 minutes flossing with the string. I just had no time for this with two kids. This really changed my flossing experience. I love this waterpik.
I really like this product, but have to admit it took a bit of getting the hang of it. More than once I sprayed myself but good. However if you read the enclosed information explains how to, and I really feel my teeth are getting a break. Yes I like it.
