The entire time I was pregnant with both of my children, I prayed. Of course, I prayed they would be healthy….but selfishly I prayed they would get their Daddy’s long legs and my teeth. I was blessed with perfectly straight, healthy teeth. Don’t be too jealous! I still got the adolescent experience of wearing coke-bottle glasses, but I never had to have braces.
Well, God has a sense of humor, because both of my children have had teeth issues galore. My son is currently in his first set of braces, with another set to come later. We’ve also had the fun experience of having a palate expander. Now, we all know how much fun it is to try and floss your child’s teeth, right? Try flossing your child’s teeth with a mouthful of metal. I’d rather walk on hot coals. That is, until we got the Waterpik Water Flosser. This product has literally changed my life.
To invest in the health of your teeth and gums is a no-brainer. We all know that good oral health and hygiene takes time and daily commitment. The Waterpik Water Flosser is more effective than string floss, and more fun, too! A study at the University of Nebraska found that adding a water flosser to tooth brushing was up to 93% more effective at improving gum health than toothbrushing and string flossing. Whether using a manual or sonic-powered toothbrush, adding a water flosser resulted in better reductions in gum bleeding, gingivitis, and plaque, the common signs of gum disease. That’s why I was overjoyed to test out both the Ultra Water Flosser and the the Water Flosser For Kids.
We recently spent an afternoon at the dentist and then the orthodontist the following week. Both the dentist AND the orthodontist commented how clean my son has been keeping his teeth! I was so excited as Nicolas has been in braces on the top for just about a year and I have been a nervous wreck about him keeping his teeth clean around the braces. We have worked really hard on brushing, but until the Water Pik Flosser became part of his daily routine, I really don’t think our flossing was effective enough. For one thing, it took so long I always felt like we weren’t thorough enough. He loves the water flosser and I NEVER have to remind him to use it because he loves it. He even commented how his mouth felt so clean!
Not to be left out, I have been using the Ultra Water Flosser and I love it. With different tips for different jobs, my overall gum and oral health has never been better. Water Pik products would be a perfect gift for anyone this year to show them you care about their health!
