    Hey! Thanks for this post! I had no idea about water flosser tips and to hear, immediately, that they can be used by multiple people is appealing. As you describe this device, it seems as though it can replace multiple devices, such as standard dental floss and a tongue scraper. Is that accurate? Am I reading correctly? Also, could you tell me if a water flosser feels like what is used at the dentist, or does it feel more like traditional flossing? Any issue with bleeding gums?

      Hi there

      Waterpik flosser should not replace flossing,you will still need to floss even if you`re using waterpik.Having said that, opinions do vary, some dentists say it`s enogh if you have a waterpik, some say no.

      Regarding waterpik  flosser feeling like a dentist visit, the answer is no. Waterpik flosser does not cause bleeding gums

    The water pik flosser is highly recommended in the dental profession for anyone who wants to keep their teeth for a long time. After all you only “floss the ones you want to keep.”
    It is an excellent choice for individuals with periodontal problems, because it not only prevents tooth decay, but also reduces/removes periodontal bio-film to keep gums healthier.
    It is definitely a worthwhile investment if you wish to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Gum disease is a main culprit behind bad breath, so getting a handle on the gum disease would go miles toward reducing mouth odor.

  4. This post is great, very informative. Thanks for sharing such a great device.I have never heard about the Water flosser tips but it sounds amazing in order to maintain the best oral care.
