WaterPik Complete Care 5.0 Water Flosser + Sonic Toothbrush

Healthy teeth and gums make a big difference in how we feel and in how we look. You might not immediately list tooth care products as beauty tools, but they do affect our appearance. I had been using a WaterPik water flosser for a few years, and was very happy with it. However, my partner was having problems with his gums and teeth, and in some degree of desperation, I decided to upgrade my own flosser, and hand that older one to him (the devices come with multiple interchangeable tips, including 2 of the tip most often used - so it was like new for my husband to use). The price around the holiday season was very appealing on this. I found both the option with the sonic toothbrush, and one with an oscillating round tooth brush, at the same price. I had never tried a sonic toothbrush, had already used a round powered brush, but decided to give the sonic device a try. (Some part of me was also whispering that Doctor Who has his Sonic Screwdriver, so why not a Sonic Toothbrush?) The new flosser is a tiny bit quieter than the old one. I handed off a rubber computer mouse pad with my old flosser, because it was that noisy. In most other respects the flossers work almost identically. Both have dials to adjust water pressure. The new WaterPik doesn't have storage in the lid for the flosser tips, but the lid has a hinge, which I find neater. I usually don't switch flosser tips often, so keeping the small plastic storage box in a bathroom drawer work just fine. I'm undecided about the sonic toothbrush, I am sad to say. It seems to do a fine job cleaning my teeth. The head is not too large (I have a very small mouth and a narrow jaw, and a lot of dental work devices are hard to fit on me). The timer feature is nice to make sure I'm brushing long enough. All this said, the handle is pretty big and bulky in my hand. I'm not really sure whether I am moving the brush the right way - there are no tutorial videos I have found for using the brush, while there are a few from WaterPik and others, about how to use a flosser. The set comes with a travel case for the sonic toothbrush that's very sturdy, but I don't travel much so I haven't needed it. The design of the new one is a little prettier than the more functionally designed older one - there are hints of metallic details on the new one that are missing on the old. The operation is very intuitive for the most part. I like how clean my mouth feels after using the WaterPik.

Honestly I never floss. I have to admit. I remember when these 'electric flossers' came out and I was a bit skeptical if they did the job properly (as well as string floss). It is a tad 'weird' at first I fill the reservoir with 1 part Listerine whitening to 4 parts warm water. It also comes with a few attachments for different dental jobs. There's a normal head, orthodontic, plaque buster, tongue cleaner, sensitive and a gum pick pocket. I have used all of the attachments except for the orthodontic one and the sensitive one, most of the time I just use the normal one. There are various pressure setting on this model I started of initially at 2 but it goes all the way up to 10. After about a couple of days of getting used to it, I commonly have it on the 5 or 6 setting. When I use the Waterpik (same as my oral b 5000 electric toothbrush), I start on the outside bottom row left quadrant, then right quadrant, then the inside teeth bottom row left quadrant, then right quadrant. Then move onto top outside left quadrant then right quadrant, then the inside left quadrant, then right quadrant. I find this electric flosser soooo much quicker than traditional string floss. Also I find normal string floss sooo boring, I really enjoy the water pushing 'cleansing' feeling of the Waterpik. Also in clinical trials from laboratory experiments it shows the Waterpik as being far better at plaque removal than the Phillips equivalent air floss. I bought my Waterpik from Chemist warehouse 'twas on sale for $130 compared to $170-$190 at Shaver shop (I've heard Shaver shop have horrible refund policies as my sister tried to refund an IPL and it was a horrific ordeal!). I am very happy with my Waterpik and I used it every single day and haven't had any problems with it. I recommend it to anyone as a great electric flosser.
