The effect of the oral irrigator and how to choose it
An oral irrigator removes dirt and tartar between teeth and periodontal pockets using the power of ultra-high-speed jet water and ultrasonic waves. It's a popular product, also known as a jet washer, but why not make it a new habit?

Do you know the "oral irrigator" that is attracting attention now?

This product, also called "water pick", is a mouse care item that sprays high-pressure water in your mouth to remove dirt between teeth and periodontal pockets that cannot be removed with a toothbrush or floss alone.

The history of household oral irrigators is surprisingly old and has been on the market since the 1970s. It has become commonplace in the last few years. Major manufacturers such as Panasonic and Philips have entered the market, and in addition to orthodox deferment, handy types that do not take up space are also appearing.

On this page, we will introduce the effects of oral irrigators, how to choose them, and recommended products based on them.

Three effects of oral irrigator

The effect of the oral irrigator and how to choose it

It is possible to remove stains on teeth that cannot be removed with a toothbrush alone ... An oral irrigator that is truly an epoch-making item. Shouldn't we rely more on this ... So let's reorganize what kind of effect it has.

1. Suppress bad breath

One of the main causes of bad breath is the increase in periodontal disease bacteria that nourish the plaque left on the teeth. The reason is that it is actually impossible to remove all plaque by relying solely on brushing with a toothbrush. Many dentists point out that even if you brush carefully with a toothbrush, plaque can be removed at most about 60% . It should tell you, "Many people finish brushing their teeth with more than 40% of the remaining plaque left ...". We also recommend using an interdental brush or floss.

As the teacher said, it's a good idea to remove the plaque left over with an interdental brush or floss. But here, let's aim for even higher. Try using an oral irrigator in addition to electric toothbrushes, interdental brushes and floss.

With this in place, you will be able to aim for the ideal plaque removal process. If you remove the plaque as thoroughly as possible, you can suppress the growth of periodontal disease bacteria and you can expect great suppression of bad breath.

2. Reduce the risk of periodontal disease

If you use an oral irrigator, you should be able to remove plaque, which is the food for periodontal disease bacteria, more than ever. Therefore, the probability of getting periodontal disease can be reduced.

Periodontal disease bacteria also enter the "periodontal pocket" at the base of the tooth. The periodontal disease bacteria here are said to be 2 to 60 times more toxic than other periodontal disease bacteria in the mouth. In addition, it is difficult to remove with a toothbrush, and it is a very troublesome existence.

Therefore, if you use an oral irrigator well, it will also be effective against periodontal disease bacteria in the "periodontal pocket", so bad breath will be noticeable due to periodontal disease bacteria, and the bones that support your teeth will be weakened. It reduces the chance of symptoms occurring.

3. Make tartar difficult to form

Calcium in saliva is deposited in plaque, making it hard and difficult to remove. It is called "tartar". Therefore, by using an oral irrigator together with the usual toothpaste, it can be expected that plaque in the mouth will be significantly reduced, and it can be said that "tartar" is also less likely to occur.

Bad breath, periodontal disease, tartar ... All are mainly caused by leaving plaque unattended. Therefore, if you use an oral irrigator to remove plaque that cannot be removed with a toothbrush and an interdental brush or floss, you can aim for healthy and beautiful teeth without odor.
 

How to choose an oral irrigator

How should I choose an oral irrigator? I will explain how to choose it with four points.

There are "stationary type" and "handy type" for oral irrigator.

Oral irrigators are roughly divided into "stationary type" and "handy type". The "stationary type" is a type in which the main body with a large tank is used in a stationary manner, and the nozzle to be inserted into the mouth is connected by a cord. On the other hand, the "handy type" is an integrated type with a small tank attached to the main body.

So what kind of person is each type suitable for?

"Deferred type" is recommended for people who value water pressure and who want to use it for a long time

The stationary type is the basic type of oral irrigator. Although there are technical problems such as batteries, the stationary type has been the mainstream and matured as a product since the 1970s. Since the structure is simple, it seems that it tends to be used for a long time with few failures.

Even if the contents of the tank become heavy, it does not affect usability so much, so a large capacity water tank can be installed, so it can be used continuously for about 2 to 3 minutes. Since it can be made higher power, it will blow off plaque firmly with high water pressure.

However, you need enough space and an outlet in the washroom. However, for those who want durability and power, the stationary type is recommended.

"Handy type" is recommended for people who cannot secure power and people with a small washroom

The advantage of the handy type is that it is easy. Even if you use it in a compact washroom in an apartment or apartment, it does not get in the way unlike the stationary type. Also, because it is rechargeable with a built-in battery, it can be used even in places where there is no outlet. It doesn't get in the way even if you put it around the sink, and it's attractive that it doesn't become bulky even if you store it when not in use.

The disadvantage is that the capacity of the water tank is small, so the injection time is short, and if you use it for a long time, you need to add water on the way. In addition, there are some models in which the water pressure weakens as the battery level decreases.

This handy type is recommended for beginners who are new to oral irrigators, those who want to try it first, or those who do not want to put a large item in the washroom.

If you have weak gums or use it with your family, we recommend that you adjust the water pressure.

Most of the oral irrigators currently on the market can adjust the water pressure. However, some types cannot be adjusted, so don't forget to check it.

If your gums are weak or inflamed, you may feel pain if the water pressure is too high. If you have bleeding with an interdental brush or floss, you should choose a product that can adjust the water pressure.

There is no doubt that those who use it with their families, such as with children, should choose one that can adjust the water pressure.
