This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Waterpik. I may be a rare case but I LOVE going to the dentist. I mean, I actually look forward to it. Really, I do! I feel like it’s “spa day” for my teeth. I get to sit back, close my eyes, and no one expects me to hold up a brilliant conversation for at least 20 minutes. The only downside to my “dental-spa day” visit is when Mr. Dentist asks (and he always does) ” Have you been flossing regularly?” I stutter… I mumble… and usually manage to get out….”Ummm, welll, Yes,……but I could probably do a better job.” Who am I kidding??? At this moment my dentist is like Santa…..He knows everything. The truth is I really DO floss regularly but having a small mouth and very tightly spaced teeth has always made flossing a chore. Trying to get regular floss in-between my teeth is like sawing them apart and I often end up shredding the floss. Having a small mouth makes flossing with regular string floss an awkward dance, especially trying to figure out the right angle for teeth in the back. Struggle as I do, I still encourage our children to floss daily because of the health benefits flossing provides. And then they got braces. When our oldest daughter got braces flossing was an even bigger challenge. Sometimes we would try to help her floss. Disaster & tears. Two of our other children will be up for braces soon and I’ve been dreading the daily flossing braces routine again. When I was approached to try out a Waterpik Aquarius Professional Water Flosser in our home, I jumped at the chance to make this part of our lives a little easier. The first thing I noticed was that its design didn’t take up a lot of room on the counter. Bathroom counter space is prime real estate at our house. (Win #1 for the Waterpik Water Flosser!) I also loved that it had 7 different flossing tips, with one especially for braces! The Waterpik Aquarius Professional Water Flosser is clinically proven to remove 3x as much plaque around braces vs. using string floss. I cannot tell you how relieved I am that we will not have to struggle flossing our next set of braces. The flossing tips also help me to reach even the farthest back teeth, eliminating my struggle-bus-awkward- floss dance. ( Win #2 for the Waterpik Water Flosser!) Remember when I mentioned I felt like going to the dentist was like a “spa day” for my teeth? Well, it looks like the folks over at Waterpik might agree with me. The Aquarius model has two flossing modes – Floss and Massage. The massage mode helps to stimulate circulation to the gums for improved gum health. The best part about going to the spa IS the massage, right? (Win #3 for the Waterpik Water Flosser!) I’ve been using the Waterpik Aquarius Professional Flosser for a couple of weeks now and my teeth are feeling cleaner and my gums are looking better than ever (The Waterpik removes up to 99.9% of plaque in just 3 seconds!). I actually look forward to flossing now instead of it being such a daily chore. I’m also looking forward to my next dentist visit so I can brag a little about my improved flossing habits with the Waterpik Water Flosser. Although who wants to bet my dentist notices first! Spoiler Alert: There are a couple of things you should know before getting a Waterpik Aquarius Professional Flosser of your very own. 1) Do yourself a favor and use semi warm water. The first time I used it I used cold tap water and it was a bit shocking. 2) Don’t wait to get one. My only regret is not having a Waterpik Water Flosser sooner. Seriously, I kick myself thinking of all the tears we could have saved during our first set of braces. Ready to get one of your very own?
