Floss with Water

Do your children hate using floss? The new Waterpik Water Flosser for Kids is hear to help.

Designed for smaller hands, this water flosser helps get the food out from between the teeth, even in those tight spots. This unique tool has also been “clinically proven to be up to twice as effective as using string floss and studies have shown it removes 99 percent of plaque from treated areas.” So, why wouldn’t you want your child to have one?

My daughter has the tightest teeth in the back on both the top and bottom. It is so hard to gently get string floss between them. We repeatedly find that the string floss snaps down through the teeth, breaking the skin on her gums causing them to bleed. To top it off, it is even sometimes harder to get it back out. We usually have to slide it out, but that is just pulling the food back in between the teeth.

So, I was grateful to have been given the chance to try this product out on her. At first, she made a bit of a mess, but with a little practice, she has it under control. Now, she is excited to continue cleaning her teeth and doesn’t fear having to use floss anymore. Thank goodness!

I highly recommend this to anyone experiencing the same situation with their children.

The Waterpik Water Flosser for Kids comes with two tips (one for general use and one for orthodontics — great for braces!), three pressure settings and a 60 plus seconds water capacity. It is easy to use and kids will love using it.
