My dentist advised me to get an oral irrigator to help with a build up of plague especially at the back of my mouth. However, at around £70 they were way out of my price range. Luckily I had the chance to test of the water flosser from Yasi which is currently selling on Amazon at less than half that price.
The unit comes nicely boxed with USB charging lead, stand and 4 nozzles (you will need your own plug). Although it does have an instruction booklet I would highly recommend watching the video on their You Tube Channel as it explains so much more about the nozzles and how to use it (link below). I didn’t, and ended up getting soaked and trying to floss with a nasal attachment!
To use, you fill up with warm/tepid water from the tap (this is important as even slightly cool water feels harsh on the gums) Then chose your mode and press on – for beginners I would certainly recommend the point control and then maybe work up to soft. The water lasts around 30 seconds of a normal floss so you may need to refill once or twice. Once finished you turn on to evacuate any residue water before placing in the stand until you next use it.
It certainly takes some practice to get the technique right but once you’ve got used to it, it does leave your mouth with a lovely fresh clean feeling.
As mentioned there is also a nasal irrigator and nasal brush attachment which is useful if you suffer from allergies, again easier using the point control.
