I tested one of Waterpik’s most popular products The Ultra Dental Water Jet which is clinically proven to be significantly more effective than flossing alone. It helps to reduce gingivitis and removes bacteria deep between teeth and below the gumline. It cleans three times deeper than brushing alone. With its state-of-the-art dental water jet technology, this product features 10 pressure settings and 6 tips which guarantee healthier gums in just 14 days. You can view all the specific details for the Ultra Dental Water Jet here.
I am religious about dental hygiene. So if there is something I can do to keep my teeth and gums healthy (aside from brushing and flossing alone) then I want to incorporate it into my daily routine. When I received the Ultra Dental Water Jet, the directions on how to use this unit were clearly explained. A small card was inserted in the box (along with a detailed information packet) with 6 easy steps.
Basically, you fill the reservoir with water and lock it onto the base, select and insert a tip to use, adjust the pressure on the unit itself, and begin to use the selected tip on your teeth and gums. So easy! When you use the Ultra Dental Water Jet for the first time, you need to “prime” the unit (step #3) making sure the pressure tip is pointed down toward the sink. This not only allows the pressure and the water to work through the unit correctly, but having the tip pointed down toward the sink will keep the water from spraying elsewhere. Once I inserted the tip and adjusted the pressure (as well as the pause control), I quickly began to get the hang of it. At first, some of the water was spraying too fast, but the dial on the unit to reduce the pressure is there so that you are able to control how hard the water comes out at any time. When I found the right setting that was comfortable for me, I began to use this unit effectively. The Ultra Dental Water Jet was really getting right at the gumline and between all of my teeth beautifully. Especially for far to reach places, this unit ensured an excellent cleaning every single time. My dentist would be so proud of me!
I’ve used this product for a week now in conjunction with regular brushing and flossing. However, if you don’t enjoy flossing so much, this product can actually replace flossing. My teeth and gums certainly feel cleaner and fresher since testing the unit! Using the Ultra Dental Water Jet has been the third acquired step in my daily routine. It’s a product that has definitely lived up to its promise and even has clinical studies to support it. I strongly encourage you to catch a great video on the Waterpik website demonstrating exactly how the Ultra Dental Water Jet works. You can watch that video here.
