Wrong. Amazon deal was the model down from this EW1211 I think.

What will they think of next!

That was the 1211 -- cheaper model.

I've been searching for the perfect flosser, and it seems the most effective ones require mains power, Ie. not battery powered. I don't have a socket in the bathroom, so I've tried the Waterpik Water Flosser and the Philips Sonicare. The Waterpik can be a bit messy until you master it, but it nearly does the job. I just wish it were more powerful. The Philips is simple and tidy, and some swear by it, but all it does is shoot a sad little jet of air between your teeth. Might do the job for some, but for me it was just useless and annoying.

Excellent for getting sleep out of the eyes.

I'm amazed by the amount of people who don't floss or anything.

i don't have perfect teeth but I do brush 3 times daily and use interdental brush's, much better than floss I think.

it's horrible when your talking to someone any they have bad breath.

Bad breath comes from rotting teeth and gums. Sugar ,diet plays its part as well.

You need floss to clean under the gum line.

Interdental brushes won't do that, although I've never used them.

If you're into looking after your teeth I'd recommend Peppersmith or PUR gum xylitol gum, and what I'll be getting next - xylitol toothpaste.

And xlitol instead of sugar.

I've got the Panasonic EW1211 - not used it for ages, will again, but I liked it. Although it's messy and you have to refill it quickly.

Some people say it's helped their gums grow back - because of the gentle massaging.

I didn't find it too weak, but I've not used a waterpik.

Oh, oil pulling's good too - put a teaspoon of pure coconut oil in your mouth, and swill around as you shower etc.
Don't spit it out in the sink - in a bin instead - as it will harden and otherwise cause issues.

Going to try activated charcoal next.

Got a sonicare coming soon - hopefully an upgrade over my Oral B.

If your gums have some recession like mine I'd recommend the modified stillmans technique. I do that to clean the front of my teeth after using an electric toothbrush - which I use mostly on the top, not the sides.

My more recent revelation's been to brush for longer and gentler.

E.g. several minutes - electric, then a very gentle manual toothbrush.
Leave plenty of toothpaste on your teeth/in your mouth while getting ready, so it can actually do some work.

Spit a bit out etc. Then properly rinse before you drink anything.

Flouride etc. can't do much in 2 minutes.

Green tea helps throughout the day too for keeping your teeth happy.

Wish I'd never got a metal filling though - worth paying for white ones.

Why did they have to stop making refills for the Braun humming bird eletric flosser. That thing was perfect!

Interesting comments. My dentist told me just to floss front teeth. And to make sure to use toothbrush on gums too.

My mouth just doesn't feel clean unless i a interdental brush. The te-pe ones are best but cost a bit more.

From the amount of advice that you offer you sound as if you're a dentist which I don't think you are from the errors in your comments.

You slag off interdental brushes without ever having used them.

I suggest you have a word with your dentist/hygienist and then review your teeth brushing habits which I'll wager will then be substantially different.
Rinse after brushing? The BDA recommended against that many years ago!

To clean under the gumline - properly - requires an expert and not just a piece of floss. I've had it done and it's bloody painful. Not something I'd want to repeat in a hurry!!

Of course you need to rinse before you drink water/eat food in the morning.
I'm not talking about at night or right after brushing, I'm talking about before you consume water/food.
Otherwise you're consuming flouride and a load of cleaning and foaming agents.

I specifically make sure I don't need to any water after brushing for that reason at night, so I don't need to rinse.

I didn't slag off interdental brushes, I just stated that they don't clean under the gum line - so they're not a replacement for flossing.

My dentist said I had the best oral hygiene he'd ever seen.

I asked him about interdental brushes as I felt I wanted better interdental cleaning too, mentioning TePes, but he told me to floss instead. Dentists, their advice, and their abilities will differ.

I've got nothing against interdental brushes, I'd still like to try some.

Flossing will clean a bit under the gumline, unlike an interdental brush.
Personally if I were to choose one over the other, I'd choose floss.

I needed to brush the back of my front teeth more, that's the feedback I got.

Still learning and improving, but your reply is rather rude.

Was only trying to be helpful.

How is this one? Is this deal cold because device is useless or price too high?

Is it worth getting the Panasonic? I just purchased this one. And I don't know why this is cold. Is the device useless or price too high?

Cold votes on HUKD can mean anything - often it's ignorance.

I had a very well researched and great deal on some Samsung headphones voted cold as they were Samsung and not a popular brand like Bose. Then had comments to get a Bose etc. from people that didn't even know what the deal was about and didn't take the time to read the description.

And then I've had a Stanley knife - admittedly a decent deal - get 1000 degrees.

Cheap things often get a lot of heat.

This deal has expired though.

Need to use mine again, but I liked it.

Main criticisms are needing to refill it with water, and some say it lacks power.

I found it powerful enough personally.

It takes up less space and is less effort to set up than a Waterpik, and you can use it travelling.

If you want decent toothpaste I'd highly recommend Taylor's 32.

Currently £4 at Waitrose, or £5 at Amazon.

Only sweetened with Xylitol (which is great for your teeth), no nasties, and the guy's that make it confirmed it's not tested on animals and they're working to get the leaping bunny logo added.

Normal toothpaste is trash in comparison, and full of rubbish.

I really struggled to find a natural toothpaste that does contain fluoride available in the UK, and then found Taylors 32, which totally fits the bill.

For floss I've found Sainsburys dental tape to be good. Used to use Oral B Pro Expert dental tape but they test on animals.
Although they do add unnecessary perfume to it which I can notice and can cause me to sneeze.

Sainsbury's, Co-Op, M&S and Waitrose I believe are good for own brands as they don't test on animals. They normally have a no questions asked returns policy if the product is rubbish too, which is useful for dental floss as it can be very hit and miss.

Anyway, if you've got it already give it a go, if it's no good for you you can perhaps return it.

I'm now using a Sonicare Flexcare platinum and it's much better than my old Oral B electric toothbrush I'd say.

Worth getting anything that'll help your teeth - prevention is better and cheaper than fixing issues (dental work).
