I wish I could tell you that I floss everyday, but the reality of it is that I probably only floss a few times a week. Flossing just isn’t a lot of fun. When I had the opportunity to try the Waterpik Waterflosser (WP-100), that sounded like fun.

My Experience With Water Flosser
Using the Waterpik Water Flosser is really fun. It feels quite different than using waxy floss. I have very sensitive gums and my dentist is always telling not to brush so hard and to be very careful when I floss.
With the Water Flosser, I don’t have to worry about flossing to hard. I found that using the lowest setting worked well for me at first. Once I got used to using the Water Flosser, I increased the pressure slowly and I feel like I’m getting better results with more pressure.
My best piece of advice when using the Water Flosser? Lean over the sink! The first time I used it, it was messy because I wasn’t used to it. I kept forgetting to hit the pause button to turn the water off and then I’d let go of the pause before I put it back in my mouth. After a few days, that didn’t happen anymore.
I’m very interested to see if my dentist notices a difference because she is always telling me that she knows I don’t floss every day. I know I feel a difference after I use the Waterpik Water Flosser. I recently reviewed thetoo.
