I’m turning 40 this year…this month actually…and so I have been on a self improvement mission. I promised myself that I would start taking better care of myself both inside and out. This actually started about 6 months ago when I went to the dentist and was once again chided for never flossing. He told me that it was a good thing I use a high-quality electric toothbrush and that it was probably the only thing saving me from having gum issues. So I decided for the first time in my life to start flossing.
I’m gonna be honest: I hate flossing. Or more correctly, I used to hate flossing until I discovered water flossing. Regular flossing is messy, it’s awkward getting the floss all the way in the back of your mouth, and it’s not very comfy either. But water flossing is so simple that I actually look forward to flossing now. When I was given the opportunity to try the Waterpik Aquarius Water Flosser, I jumped at the chance. Something that might make it so that I never have to pick up another piece of string floss again? Well, I’m in!
What’s so great about the Waterpik Aquarius Water Flosser? The fact that you really don’t have to do any work to get up to a 50% more effective cleaning than with string floss! It’s clinically proven to improve gum health over regular string flossing, and it’s pain free. No more stabbing yourself in the gums and no more blood! It’s the easy and more effective way to floss.
The Waterpik Aquarius Water Flosser is proven to remove up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas in 3 seconds. It literally takes just a minute or so to floss all of your teeth using the most advanced water flosser ever. You simply fill up the water reservoir, turn the unit on, and then place the flosser tip in your mouth. Once it’s in your mouth, you switch it from “OFF” to “ON” and let the water flossing begin.
Waterpik Aquarius Water Flosser features an On/Off water control on the handle for greater ease of use, as well as two flossing modes – Floss and Massage (you will LOVE the massage!), and it includes a variety of 7 Water Flosser Tips. My favorite feature is the one-minute timer with a 30-second pacer, so there’s no guesswork involved in how long you need to water floss your teeth.
Now it can be messy until you get the hang of it; you have to figure out just how much to keep your mouth open so the water comes out and if you forget to turn off the water flosser before you take it out of your mouth, you’ll have a mess everywhere! But once you get used to it, you’ll never use regular string floss again. I know I never will.
Tips For Using the Waterpik Aquarius Water Flosser
1. Make sure not to use cold water in the reservoir. I don’t have sensitive teeth but the one time I used cold water on accident I almost fainted! It wasn’t that bad, but it wasn’t pleasant either.
2. Don’t forget to turn the water flosser off before taking it out of your mouth or you will have a mess EVERYWHERE. But it’s just water so it’s easy to clean up.
3. Take your time and make sure to leave the flosser in between your teeth for 3 seconds. You can actually see bits of food in the sink after you water floss. I never saw that with regular flossing.
4. Be prepared to want to water floss more often!
