Excellent Product - a Must for Those with Dental Bridges

When my dentist made me a bridge, she recommended to me to get a dental water jet system for cleaning them - a Waterpik. Ordinary floss will no longer do the job as it cannot be squeezed in between my new teeth. Not very familiar at that time about what a Waterpik is, I went to do my research and find this one to have one of the highest customer satisfaction and at the same time a very affordable price.

It occupies only a small footprint, very easy to setup and very simple to use. The jet has 10 power settings. 1 to 3 is weak, and 8 to 10 might be very strong. I recommend to start by using the number 3 setting and adjust the knob as it suits you.

Included are multiple attachments. Changing between tips is very quick. There is a small button near the base for release and to replace with a new one is just a little push with a click. First, I thought that the brush is the best tool to clean my teeth. But then the brush itself is hindering the water jet particularly when the bristles bend as you brush your teeth. The 2 regular tips are the best for the job. There is one strange looking tool tip for cleaning the tongue, honestly I find no use for that. The orthodontic tip has a much finer rubber tip for the little crevices around your teeth.

To think about it, with a new dental bridge, I really can not clean my teeth as thorough without a water jet. Not only it cleans the teeth, it also massage the gums.

Very happy with this product. It also makes cleaning teeth more fun. Even my kids are having fun with it. I just wish it includes 3 more regular color coded tips for each member of the family.

Hey there, nuknuk - I've been meaning to swing by and say welcome back! It's been a while since we've seen you around. How are things going? Have you checked out our new communities that are forming? You are surely about to become a top contributor on Electronics on Lunch! Nice to see you back..

Yeah, nice to be back. Just got back from my month long trip to the Philippines. Not easy to find an internet connection where I stayed.  Too many memories, after 16 years, ... hope to return soon.
Sad, that one of our most beloved presidents - Cory Aquino - just passed away.

Were you there when that happened? It's taken my dad 20 years to return - and he was pretty emotional.

Speaking of Cory Aquino, check out that data point I created, and take a look at the art piece I found the other day in the photo section. Pretty nice.

I left Manila July 28 and Cory died Aug 1st. But I was there during her presidency.
