For once, it’s OK to open wide and bare your teeth. Because you’re about to embark on a whole new oral hygiene ritual.
Ditch the regular dental floss and the swelling and bleeding that often occur after use and say hello to the Professional Rechargeable Oral Irrigator. What it lacks in a catchy name it makes up for in results.
Utilizing water, the toothbrush-like device uses high pressure to flush out bacteria along the gum line and between teeth, cleaning deeper and in places regular floss can’t reach.
It works really well and the result is a sublimely clean-feeling mouth. But be warned: This thing is messy. As soon as the water hits your teeth, it splatters all over the mirror, sink and anyone who happens to be within firing range. Even with practice we couldn’t keep it contained.
Our solution? Use it in the shower. Because in there, we found that it even works to quickly remove dirt from under our finger nails, too.
Don’t worry, that’s as far as our experimentation went.
