Waterpik water flosser

My son is 14 years old. He had the most beautiful set of baby teeth ever. Straight and good spacing (accordingly to the dentist). He started loosing baby teeth at about 6 and by 7 & 8 the adult teeth were coming in. It did not take long to see that he was going to need braces.

Once it was confirmed by the dentist he gave us an orthodontist referral. Needless to say after what felt like a million appointment he had braces. The hygienist told us that it would be really beneficial if he got a water pick, also called a Water Flosser.

I looked these up and I thought it was so cool. It would really help him get the food stuck in he braces. I ordered a kid version and he LOVESS it!!

The one we got is this:

What he likes:

  • That it cleans his teeth better
  • He doesnt have to use string floss as much
  • This water flosser has three speeds and he really likes that he can speed it up and slow it down
  • He loves the stickers that come with it. You can customize it to any design you want!!

What we donโ€™t like:

  • I donโ€™t like that fact that it doesnโ€™t had a stop button on the handle
  • ย Also the top where you store the water does not have a lid. Now we have never spilled it in the many times he has used it, but I just see it coming.

With that said Tyler Rates it a:

๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…/ out of 5,ย ย and he thinks it is worth the $$$

I think it is a ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…๐Ÿ…/5 as well. It is nice to get a deeper clean. The cons do not really out weigh the pros. Definitely worth the money and I would purchase it again!!

If you are not interested in the kids version the same brand makes an adult version too, like these:

  1. The Waterpik Water Flosser is a fantastic bit of kit, I have one for myself.
    I can see why it would be a great idea for a kid with braces though with how difficult flossing would be if it could be done at all!

    But the water flosser really makes me feel like between my teeth and my gums have been cleaned effectively. Out of the pressure settings I usually go for 4, it feels too powerful for me above that, but that’s why its good that it even has the option to adjust the pressure.

    It’s quicker and easier than flossing too, just 1 minute a day and its done. That also makes it eco-friendly, no more floss being used and chucked in the trash for me!

      You will love it! It does take some getting use to.. I think the hardest part for me was thinking that the water would disappear. When you go to the dentist they usually suck it rihgt out at the same time. With this you have to

  2. I have the adult version of the waterpik and absolutely love it! My mom is a hygienist and recommended this to me before I was pregnant. It really is a great product, and I’m happy to hear you are happy with the child’s version. I love how gentle the waterpik is compared to flossing with regular string floss.

  3. My husband grew up using a water oil and loved it – he could never really tell me why so I loved reading your review on the benefits. Iโ€™ll have to look more at the adult one.
