More Effective Than Flossing -- Without the Discomfort

Most dental professionals recommend brushing and flossing to keep your teeth and gums their healthiest. Unfortunately, a large number of people don't floss on a regular basis, and most studies have shown that most people find flossing to be a painful or unpleasant chore. Waterpik has created an effective alternative to flossing that feels great and is simple to use.
Pulsating Streams for Healthier Teeth and Gums

The Waterpik Ultra Cordless Dental Water Jet goes beyond flossing to keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean. Waterpik has designed the WP-450 to deliver precisely controlled pulsating streams of water pressure to remove debris and bacteria lodged deep between teeth and below the gumline. In fact, it has been shown that the WP-450 can clean three times deeper than brushing alone. In addition, it massages and stimulates the gums to improve circulation. The WP-450 helps promote strong and healthy gums, leaving you with a clean, fresh mouth sensation.

According to Waterpik, there are over 50 published clinical studies that show the Waterpik Dental Water Jet provides significant oral health benefits for anyone who desires healthier teeth and gums. These studies also show that the WP-450 is especially effective for those who have braces, implants, crowns, bridges, and other dental work. For these reasons, Waterpik is one of the most recommended brands by dental professionals.

Cleaning Accessories

Oral health benefits aside, the Waterpik WP-450 is also a complete device loaded with lots of great features. It includes four colour-coded tips:
Jet Tip: provides cleaning deep between teeth and below the gumline.
Orthodontic Tip: excellent for cleaning around braces.
Pik-Pocket Tip: delivers extra gentle deep cleaning below the gumline.
Tongue Cleaner: removes bacteria that causes bad breath.

I had a Waterpik, now gathering dust. It doesn't take more than a few seconds to empty the reservoir, so you are constantly filling it. Blasting water into your mouth is very messy, particularly if aiming for the backs of your teeth, so not for small sinks. Manual flossing is still more effective - don't believe the blurb. This might be quicker for fixed brace wearers, so best aimed at them.
Price is ok.

Hate these battery-powered ones - run out too fast, messy, noisy, and huge! Instead I would definitely recommend the Oraldent Power Floss, which is manual operation but very powerful:

Brilliant little device!

This might sound masochistic, but I quite like the stinging feeling of having these blasted in between your teeth and gums.

Won't a decent pressure washer do the job just as well? Saves me buying this then, gonna go get me Karcher out!

If you're getting a water jet, get the Rio Dental Water Jet over this.

It's expensive right now but it's regularly available at £20 - £25

I own it and it's FAR better than the Waterpik. Because it's mains powered, it's much stronger and larger reservoir too.

I've read on other forums about these manual ones. I might buy one on your recommendation. We haven't got a power outlet in the bathroom so the mains powered one isn't an option, and the battery powered ones always seem to get poor reviews.

I read a little article recently Dr. James Le Fanu's column in the Daily Telegraph, where a chap wrote to him recommending the Waterpik device as a useful tool for those folk like myself that are plagued with earwax build-up. As this Oraldent is a manual pump, as opposed to the Waterpik battery/mains powered item, do you think this flosser is perhaps too strong potentially for ear irrigation use?

I don't have a mains-powered one to compare it to any more - had a Waterpik rechargeable flosser years ago when Argos always had them on promo - but the Oraldent is still easily strong enough to dislodge unwanted food from between the teeth (eww!), which is what it's intended to do. Not as drenching as the others admittedly but I find it enough, and it's not exactly a massive outlay of money (worth having as a travel backup option if nothing else!?).

Well with the Oraldent I know you can certainly pump it more gently to have a smaller stream of water come out, and the new one appears to have several different heads included which might suit more. I can sympathise on the ear wax front, have had occasional problems with it, but luckly mine normally resolves by tipping my head under the shower water and letting the hot water sit for a bit in each ear. That said, I had one ear syringed at my GPs years ago, and that's probably what a Waterpik would feel like in there!
