    That's a good price for the Ultra. Very good device.

  •  

    Does anybody's Ultra shake and make a very loud noise?

    Is this normal?

    (Bought 4 weeks ago)

    We don't have one of these specifically, but we bought a knock off water flosser 12 months ago and it's bloody amazing. Feels like you've been to the dentist for a full clean after every floss and the crap that comes out of your teeth will blow you away.

  •  

    I'm quite certain the one at Chemist Warehouse is the same. Picture shows different colour but Waterpik only has two corded models and neither look like the pro model. If it's the same you can get it price beat for roughly $84.50. Link

    Have one. Don't get it just floss. This is no substitute

      This is no substitute

      That's correct, water flossing complements manual flossing, not substitute it.

      Recommended steps are to do all three, in the following order:

      1. Manual Floss - loosen/remove what water flossing can't
      2. Water Floss - "rinse/wash" away the rest
      3. Brush

        Why floss before brushing? Isn't that like using the whipper snipper before the lawn mower?

        • +17 votes

          You are supposed to use the whipper snipper before the mower!
          That way, the mower collects all the cuttings!

            @damion: Not embarrassed to admit you blew my mind with this revelation. You have genuinely changed the way I do two tasks for the rest of my life

          •  

            @damion: Good point Damion! You got me there, well played!

            Could it be argued that you'd be whipper snippering more grass than you'd need to if you mowed first? So there's more work regarding whipper snippering but then less work as in you don't have to push the lawm mower around the perimeter to collect all the cuttings. So is there more work involved in walking the perimeter with the mower at the end or whipper snippering for a longer period of time?

            Regarding the flossing, if you brush first, your flossing would be to remove bits that the brushing did not. If you floss first, you're removing a lot of stuff that would go away with brushing anyway and spending more time than needed.

            Pull down my reasonings sir!

            •  

              @Alex10: My understanding is that you should swirl water first to get all the loose food out, then floss to clean between, then swirl again before brushing. The main reason for brushing is not to get food off your teeth, but to remove the plaque and cover in fluoride.

              •  

                @damion: Thanks damion, I will check with my dentist when I go next as I'm curious. It's interesting everyone has their own take and own style of doing things.

                What's the consensus on rinsing after brushing teeth? Rinse the toothpaste out or just spit the toothpaste out and NOT rinse?

    • +4 votes

      Depends on your circumstances. I manually floss, waterpik and brush. Reason being is because I have fixed retainer wires on top and bottom of my front teeth. Manually flossing with a wire glued to your teeth is hard. This was the only reason I got the waterpik, was to help clean up hard to reach areas that I can miss with manual flossing.

    •  

      I had one, but gave up after about a year. Low power setting: not cleaning properly. High power: causing gum bleeding. There is just no medium setting which would be quite efficient while not damaging my gums.

      •  

        gum bleeding isn't your gums being damaged by the water - it's a sign of the gums already being damaged to begin with.

        •  

          My gums began to recess a bit with age, but generally I have no problem with them - brushing, flossing and biting into hard food does not cause bleeding. Some minor bleeding occurs after plaque/tartar removal by the dentist.

    What do dentists think of these things?

      • +8 votes

        I don't think you know how healthcare professionals operate

        Cleaner teeth does not correlate to less business

        people still need check ups

        people still need braces

        people still need routine care

        people still need dentures

        people still need problems unrelated to hygiene diagnosed…

        •  

          I do know how they operate, some of them are more into making money then caring about your health. I have my dental checkup every six months. And over the years I have seen a number of them. Apart from a few most of them have paid little attention or cared about my health.
          I have been booked for work that was never carried out, I have had some bad experiences to say the least. But again there have been good points too.
          And also hope much they charge doesn't equal to the quality of service they provide.

      It's no substitute for flossing which is what most patients seem to want it for.

      It's great when used in addition to flossing, especially for periodontal patients with deeper pocketing.

      Compliance rates aren't great so see if you can buy it from a manufacturer or retailer which accepts returns.

    I highly recommend this with of course brushing and flossing.

    I've been using a waterflosser for years and its amazing. Ive owned the philips airfloss and waterpik but have to say waterpik is the best.

  •  

    Pretty sure same price at Costco Instore. Can get this or the slightly small travel version

  •  

    Thx OP way cheaper than eBay, I don’t floss enough so this is a good start

    Is there any benefit using this if you don’t have any teeth?

  •  

    Thinking of getting the cordless one. Are you losing a lot more effectiveness compared to the non-cordless ones?

    • +1 vote

      imo, cordless for flossing is a luxury and not necessary (when compared to other appliances such as a toothbrush, which you can use in the shower haha)

      The biggest con is eventually the battery's capacity will diminish

      • +1 vote

        It's not a luxury at all, you can get ones as low as $37.50 like this previous deal that work just as good/better as a waterpik.

        • +1 vote

          Fair point

          With all cordless devices, the con is eventual dissipation of battery capacity over the long term use

          • +2 votes

            @sssbp: That is true and should be taken into account. However I've had my portable flosser for nearly 6 months now and have not noticed any degradation of the battery (Still lasts 1-2 weeks for me without charging). So the positives far outweigh the negatives for me.

      •  

        I want to use the flosser in the shower so it doesn't matter if water goes everywhere.

        •  

          I thought this was a good idea too, but mine has now died, presumably from the humidity. The insides are corroded, even through all the seals. (Waterpik from ALDI)

        •  

          I read in the FAQ under the product item that this cordless one is not water resistant…

    • +1 vote

      If it's a Waterpik, yes it's less pressure on a portable. Up to 75psi vs 100psi on this ultra. Other brands do not suffer from this problem. My portable flosser from this deal does up to 110psi, which is even higher than this countertop one.

  •  

    Thank OP , order 2 one cordless for use at work and one with the water tank for use at home, cheaper than flea bay.

  • +1 vote

    There are a few comments here that it doesn't replace normal flossing. Personally I disagree, maybe my water flosser is a higher psi than others.

    When I started using the water flosser I couldn't use it above a setting of 4, it made my red gums bleed and it was bloody painful. After about a week my gums changed to a nice pink colour and I could crank it up to an 8 or so with no bleeding and no pain. A few posts up I said that you won't believe what comes out of your teeth, I have never been able to get that from normal flossing.

  •  

    got it for $79.95 with a welcome code. the website is a bit dodgy, so I copied the code and used it on my original account and it still worked.

    I got a $3.14 cashrewards notification immediately upon payment, making this a cool $76.81 delivered.

    Maybe someone else can get lucky.

    Thank you! Purchased the Cordless one based on reviews/comments I saw that the reduced PSI was still plenty for the job (some people not even using the high setting). To me, that indicates that it definitely does the job as far as the design of removing plaque, but that some people can just 'handle' extra pressure.

    Not bothered by the smaller reservoir size, apparently the battery is replaceable easily enough when it fades in a few years, and the portability seems really useful. Save $10 too!

    waterpik is like spraying your dirty car with a hose, does nothing to get rid of grime or dirt. Only useful have big food bits.

    Plaque can only be removed with mechanical interaction

  •  

    This one is solid, I bought this exact model 6 years ago and it's still working. Don't think they have ever updated it. Just a note, it will wake up the whole family with the pump noise if using in the morning so use in the evening before bed.I think I paid like $49 on special back then from Harvey Norman.

    These are great when you have braces and can't get the normal floss in between your teeth.
