How a Water Flosser Works
A water flosser is basically a specialized tool which is used to eliminate food particles in the mouth. This is different from a toothbrush in that the latter is used for regular brushing to keep your teeth and gums healthy. It is also important to note that water floss isn't necessarily a replacement to brushing and regular flossing. It can, however, be a great supplement to your oral hygiene routine.
Water flossers come in two forms; battery powered and power brushes. The first type is more affordable than its counterparts, but lacks some important features. The main drawback is that it doesn't have a wide enough tooth-grinding area. For those who suffer from sensitive teeth or gums, this is definitely a disappointment. Power brushes, on the other hand, are designed with interdental brushes and a variety of suction angles. They tend to be more expensive than battery powered water flossers, but tend to last longer.
One more water flosser differs from the rest in terms of design. The Dyson Oral Hygiene Flosser has nozzles on all three sides. Because these nozzles don't allow food particles to escape, it can help improve plaque removal. This is why the Dyson Oral Hygiene Flosser has nozzles all around, while most other brands only have one nozzle on each side.
Another water flosser which comes in cordless form is the Dyson SlimLine Advanced model. This is slightly more expensive than its sister model the Dyson Oral Hygiene Flosser Advanced. However, it has a long cord, much longer than the cordless ones found on other models. It also has a large interdental space, although not as large as the large area found on other models. In terms of weight, the Dyson SlimLine Advanced is on the light side.
The first model of cordless advanced model comes with two interchangeable brushes, namely, the Thermo-Aid Multi Brusher and the Dyson Waterbrush. These brushes can be used interchangeably. The only drawback is that the brushes do not have a good grasp for harder materials like grains and vegetables. It is possible to sharpen the bristles using the Dyson Waterbrush, but it can be a bit difficult. The multi-brush has a greater control than the brush, which allows you to work on tougher materials and get more precise results.
After using the water flossers for some time, you may find that there are parts missing or worn. One of the most common parts to wear out is the beater bar. The beater bar on older water flossers might have been made from metal or plastic and is prone to being worn out. You can purchase new replacements from the manufacturer or get them from an external source such as an online store. The replacement beater bar should fit the previous model and should have the same beater design.
Another common part to experience early failure is the water tank pump. This is located between the dental floss holder and the main body of the device. The water tank pump is responsible for supplying power to the rotating interdental brushes. The pressure of the water flosser, in turn, depends on the water tank pump's ability to maintain an appropriate water pressure. If either the pressure or the water tank pump fails, it may be necessary to replace the dental floss holder and/or the entire dental floss machine.
When choosing a new water flosser, consider how often you will be using it and what its main function will be. Most water flossers are intended for two people but if your daily routine requires that you use it more than twice a day, a more expensive model with more features may be a good option. The design and cost of the dental flippers should also be taken into consideration. It is best to choose a water flosser with a warranty or guarantee. This will help you to be able to return it if you are not satisfied with the product. The Internet is a good source for additional information on water flossers.
