Water Flosser Reviews by Hayim Dentists in Essen:
For a fresh feeling in the mouth and useful as a supplement to the toothbrush . Unfortunately powerless against hard surfaces. If possible, prefer dental floss. Two things are important when it comes to a water flosser
: Please only use them with healthy periodontium (vulgo gums) and make sure the water pressure is adjustable.
The Philips Sonicare Airfloss water flosser and the Waterpik water flosser are both leaders in water flossers. If you don't use an ultrasonic toothbrush
, cleaning the spaces between your teeth with an water flosser is a useful addition.
Combining toothbrushing with an water flosser removes up to 99 percent more plaque than brushing with a manual toothbrush, and up to 65 percent more than cleaning with an electric toothbrush
dentist dr Hayim in Essen Rüttenscheid recommends this method especially for people who suffer from periodontitis . The painful inflammation of the gums is caused by bacteria that have nested in gum pockets and cannot be effectively removed with either a toothbrush or dental floss.
Hayim in Essen Dentist's Review of the Sonicare Airfloss
The Sonicare Airfloss has a tank integrated into the handle that can be filled with tap water or mouthwash. It was developed with the new microburst technology, which means that at the push of a button, the finest water droplets are accelerated by compressed air in a quick burst in just 0.3 seconds, thus loosening harmful deposits between the teeth.
With a high speed of 70 km/h and with a strong force, these water drops clean the interdental spaces very thoroughly but are still gentle on the gums and the dentures. Plaque is effectively removed from all spaces between the teeth in just one minute. dentist dr Hayim in Essen recommends filling the tank with a strong mouthwash such as Listerine and gargling with the mouthwash for an additional minute so that other bacteria in the oral cavity are eliminated.
In the Philips Sonicare Airfloss test, cleaning between teeth with the Sonicare Airfloss proved to be easier and significantly less time-consuming than using dental floss or an water flosser.
In addition, the Sonicare Airfloss test also emphasized the ease of use: The Sonicare Airfloss fits perfectly in the hand due to its low weight and ergonomic shape and is only a third as heavy as a conventional water flosser due to its small size.
In the Sonicare Airfloss test, the battery also proved to be extremely durable: With daily use, it is sufficient to charge the battery every two weeks.
The simple application :
water flosser devices
The Sonicare Airfloss tank is filled with about two teaspoons of water or mouthwash. Then the tip of the Airfloss nozzle is lightly positioned in the interdental spaces. On the posterior teeth, the Sonicare Airfloss guide tip glides along the gum line until it rests between the teeth.
This guiding tip makes it easy to find the spaces between the teeth and to optimally position the tip at the correct angle. It is not necessary to apply additional pressure.
After pressing the activation button, a blast of air and water mixture is shot into the interdental spaces for effective and gentle cleaning. This process is repeated for all interdental spaces of the teeth and under the pontics. After use, the Sonicare Airfloss nozzle can be removed and rinsed under running water. The nozzle must be replaced after 3 months at the latest. Unfortunately, the nozzle becomes leaky even after repeated use and no longer shows any pressure at the tip.
Cleaning the Sonicare Airfloss tank and nozzles
When used with water, the water reservoir should be regularly filled with a strong antibacterial mouthwash solution. Then press the activation button several times until the tank is empty to prevent bacterial growth in the tank.
If used daily with mouthwash, the Sonicare Airfloss should be periodically washed out with water and air dried to remove any chemicals or sticky substances from the mouthwash. You can also use cotton swabs with alcohol to thoroughly clean the Airfloss.
To clean the nozzles, remove them from the Sonicare Airfloss handle and rinse with water or oral solution. The jets should be replaced every six months if possible to avoid a build-up of hard water or bacteria. After 3 months of daily use, the nozzle is unfortunately not showing good water pressure and is leaking on the underside. The manufacturer should remedy these defects, because the device and especially the nozzles are not very cheap either.
Since the nozzles on the Sonicare Airfloss can be removed and swapped out, it can also be used by multiple users. The marking of the Philips Sonicare Airfloss nozzles makes it easy to distinguish between the nozzles of each user.
The comparison between the Sonicare Airfloss and a Waterpik water flosser.
With the Sonicare Airfloss, compressed air accelerates water droplets to clean between teeth. The various models of the Waterpik water flosser are very classic water flossers.
They work on a principle originally developed in 1964 by engineer John Mattingly and his dentist Gerald Moyer. A single but very powerful jet of water is blasted through the spaces between the teeth, removing the food debris that brushing could not remove.
In the USA, the manufacturer Waterpik is the market leader in the field of water flossers, so the name Waterpik is synonymous with water flossers.
When cleaning, the Waterpik water flosser demonstrates additional functionality with the various attachments that come with each model. In dentistry, cleaning the gum pockets from harmful bacteria is very important. In addition, the gums can be massaged with a Waterpik water flosser to promote blood flow to the papillae.
The Waterpik water flossers are designed in such a way that the layperson can use them without any problems. However, it is best to have a professional show you how to use it and the numerous functions that complex models such as the Waterpik water flosser ultra professional wp-100e4 offer before using it for the first time.
The ideal contact person is of course the dentist, who usually offers his patients regular cleaning of the gums and the removal of inflammation in the context of health care. The reason for this is easy to explain: as long as the bacteria are in the gum pockets and cause inflammation here , they can become responsible for other general diseases .
The Waterpik Water Flosser
A complex water flosser like Waterpik cannot replace cleaning your teeth with a toothbrush. You can supplement cleaning with a toothbrush, toothpaste and then with dental floss. This is especially true for patients with permanent gum problems .
Hayim in Essen Dentist's Review of the Waterpik® Water Flosser?
The water flosser is the final step in cleaning your teeth . The best effect is achieved with Waterpik water flosser if it is used after brushing your teeth to clean the interdental spaces instead of using dental floss.
The pulsating jet of water from the Waterpik water flosser flushes the last bits of food left over from flossing between your teeth. The food residues are often only loosened by the toothbrush and dental floss systems, but are usually still stuck between the teeth.
If you have sensitive gums, you should definitely buy a high-quality model, because the strength of the water jet can then be adjusted and the gums do not irritate and hurt.
The head of the water flosser is held between the teeth with the mouth wide open. In this way, the remaining food residue is washed out.
Which device cleans better: the Sonicare Airfloss or the Waterpik water flosser?
An electric toothbrush cleans the spaces between your teeth better than a manual toothbrush. What other device should you use to clean the interdental spaces?
The Sonicare Airfloss and Waterpik Water Flosser were compared for their effectiveness in removing plaque when used immediately after brushing. Another study analyzed the reduction of harmful bacteria. Both studies were conducted with 82 participants who were randomly divided into two groups. One group should use the Sonicare Airfloss to clean the oral cavity and the other group should use the Waterpik water flosser.
Before the test series, the participants were first instructed in the correct technique and then had two minutes to brush their teeth. Plaque and bacteria levels were then measured before the participants again had two minutes to clean the interdental spaces with the Sonicare Airfloss or Waterpik water flosser.
In both studies, the Waterpik water flosser performed significantly better than the Sonicare system: the participants were able to remove considerably more plaque and significantly reduce the number of bacteria.
Further evidence-based studies are needed to scientifically explore the comparison between different devices.
According to Sonicare Airfloss experience, the Sonicare Airfloss water flosser is an excellent alternative to daily flossing and a highly effective complement to brushing your teeth.
The Waterpik water flosser is also a useful addition to teeth cleaning. Patients with gum problems should not do without the additional protection. According to the study, those who have the choice between the two devices achieve better results with the Waterpik water flosser.
Now everyone can decide for themselves what is important to them in an water flosser . Whether it's the Philips Sonicare Airfloss or the Waterpik water flosser , both devices effectively clean the spaces between the teeth and are a useful addition, even if you don't use an ultrasonic toothbrush.
