What is a water flosser? Types of water flossers.

9 February 2023

The most modern device that will help you maintain extremely high oral hygiene is, of course, an oral irrigator.
Flawless dental hygiene is a very important aspect in anyone’s life. Efficient dental care is a process through which you protect both your health and comfort. The pain caused by dental problems can be extremely annoying, and preventing cavities is always a much more efficient solution than treating them.
In this article, you will find out what an oral irrigator is and what types of irrigators exist.

What is an Oral Irrigator?
An oral irrigator, also known as a water flosser or dental water jet, is a device that gently and deeply cleans the teeth and gums. It operates with a water jet with rapid pulses to deeply clean below the gum line and between teeth, reducing bacteria that cause gum diseases, such as gingivitis.
Moreover, it allows you to clean crowns, braces, bridges, and dental implants efficiently and gently.
The most problematic areas in the mouth for cleaning are the interdental spaces and the gum line as well as the inside and back of the teeth. Unfortunately, no toothbrush can clean these areas. This leads to plaque build-up, tartar accumulation, and gum disease.
There are many devices available to take care of these hard-to-reach areas. The oral irrigator is one of them. Anyone can include it in their oral care routine, as it is safe and easy to use.

What types of Oral Irrigators exist?
There are two main types of oral irrigators:
Portable Oral Irrigator

A portable oral irrigator is one you can take with you when you travel. This type of irrigator is small in size, designed for a single person. It has multiple detachable heads and operates on a battery.

✔ If you frequently travel or need to clean your teeth at the office, consider purchasing a portable oral irrigator model. It’s compact, lightweight, and can operate for a week on a single charge.

Stationary Oral Irrigator

It is a family-type home appliance, powered from the mains, and connected to a central unit. This irrigator has a large capacity reservoir and multiple detachable heads, for the whole family. It has several pressure steps (with the possibility of appropriate adjustment between steps).

✔ If you have a large family and space in the bathroom to store the device, we recommend buying a stationary oral irrigator.

There is no doubt that teeth and oral health have a direct impact on aesthetics and how others perceive you. And it’s not just about aesthetics, but also about health; cavities, gingivitis, bleeding gums, halitosis (bad breath), all of these are intensified if you have poor dental hygiene.
As we already know, the toothbrush is not enough for complete oral care.
Fortunately, the market offers a wide range of oral irrigators that, thanks to the pressurized water jet, eliminate all the residues that the toothbrush cannot remove.
