Rated 5 out of 5 by Lvmycorcor Should be mandatory to use
I had a complete dental makeover. I was chosen to appear in a TV show about dental transformations. When I was done I asked my new best friend, the dentist, what should I use to keep my teeth looking as good as they did the very first day. He told me use a waterpik and a sonic toothbrush. I went out and bought my waterpik that night. I have used it at least twice a day now for a year. I LOVE IT. It has kept my implants and implant supported dentures looking and feeling just like they did the very first day. When you wear something in your mouth that you can and do get food etc under you need to keep it as clean as possible. My waterpik has 100% exceeded my expectations. It runs perfectly. I have had no problems with charging, no water leaking. I just keep it charged and it keeps my new smile looking great. Thank you waterpik for designing a inexpensive but very effective product. I love my waterpik

Rated 5 out of 5 by PLM2 So far so good!
I was torn between choosing the corded or cordless models but when I was at Walmart and saw just how much less cumbersome since it's tankless, etc I got the cordless model....It was less expensive also.
Getting a waterpik was recommended by the dentist...my hygienist chimed in about how much value she puts on their use, her patients' gum health always improves.
What I do is warm 2 cups of water in a glass measuring cup and pour it into reservoir. I like how the product is working so far. Much easier and comfortable that using string floss. I can tell that the health of my gums has greatly improved since the entire tooth's base gets the benefit of water flossing, as opposed to just between the teeth as with string floss. My gums had receded somewhat and now they are back where they should be.
I was concerned about the bad reviews regarding the batteries in the unit, but so far so good. I have owned and used it for about 6 weeks now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by femf Not quite what I expected
This is the first time I've owned a Waterpik and I've only used it a couple of times. I guess it's doing what it should, but I was expecting the water stream to be a bit more forceful; perhaps that would damage the gums one is trying to make / keep healthy.

I got this device because i hate using the regular flossing thread and the braces aren't helping. So under the recommendation of a friend i tried waterpik. I get good feedbacks from my dentist telling me I did a good job keeping my gums healthy. I wish the package comes with more tips or maybe I can get free tips hehehe . Also, I believe the reservoir capacity should be larger. 20 secs is too short for me. Nevertheless, I will continue using it even after I get the braces off.

I bought this with advice from dental hygienist . Hoping it helps in keeping teeth I good shape. Good power. Have to use deep sink to fill due to height of water receptacle. Bathroom sink does not work.
Does not work for upper inner areas .

Rated 4 out of 5 by jeremiah Works well for plaque
Works well but I have been through 3 of them in the past couple of years or so. Can't the battery be replaced of made to last longer? The latest one is the best so far (Feb. 2016) that I've had.
