Just to start off the thread replies...

Water floss is better than nothing, especially if youre a bad flosser. The amount of material stuck between your teeth will surprise you, material that causes inflammation over the day. Wont delve into the "science" of flossing, but this is 110% practical

But this particularly product...reviews dont seem good. Waterpik from costco often cheaper than this, just not cordless

Best feedback from Amazon reviews:

"Let’s be honest. This thing breaks down, a lot. It comes with a 2.5 year warranty though and the replacement process works fine here in Canada. Went through 5 devices in the last 3 years. I’d like to call it a subscription service. Only flossing device that doesn’t loose its warranty with mouthwash."

Does anyone else make a better product? Other than a wired one that needs to be connected to the tap?

Probably a good use case for folks with braces.

This is exactly it. If you have braces, it’s really difficult to floss.

Otherwise, people, please floss. It’s better for your guy overall, and you won’t be judged when going to the dentist

$10 rebate available on CO51.

Since you need to scan the barcode, I’d try to PM somewhere and claim the offer today/tomorrow.

I don't floss, but I tried a couple of times. My gums bleed when I did, is it normal ?
Or was I doing something wrong

I don't get how this works? You put a tiny amount of liquid and that's all it needs? It says it produces "a teaspoon of liquid" at the end, shouldn't the amount of liquid coming out be the same amount going in?

With a waterpik it uses a whole reservoir of water (like 400mL, so how can this use such a tiny amount of liquid?

What's better, this or Waterpik? (at flossing, i don't care about price)

Yeah, that's not great. Poor gum health is correlated with more serious problems, including potential cardio issues.

If this gets you to floss, it might be something. Most dentists seem to prefer old school flossing.

P.S. Maybe get a Waterpik instead as this thing has some pitiful reviews.

Bleeding is normal if you don't floss regularly, if you start to floss somewhat regularly your gums wont bleed.

Things to notice when it comes to gums tenderness or persistent receding/bleeding would be health related, predominately insulin resistance and pre diabetic.

How effective is Waterpik vs an actual physical floss? Would you say maybe 60% as effective as the real thing?

1st Waterpik I bought lasted 7-8 years before the motor died.

Excellent product, perfect for anyone who eats a lot of popcorn :)
Thanks, I came here to ask whether OP is a better buy over this costco. I got it last week for my wife, couldn't wait for any sale as it was kind of an emergency situation.

Empirically, I always had bleeding gums growing up. I never flossed and presumably it was gingivitis. After using water floss, I no longer bleed when I DO physically floss

Brush 2x and floss 1x daily for optimal pearly health! Dental work adds up quick and your teeth are with you for (almost) a lifetime.
I probably didn’t need it but bought it anyway

Waterpik is faster and easier for me. My teeth are very tightly together, making it a hassle to get floss between them, so I only floss about once a week.
I've been using mine for 5 years and the plastic pipe to the handle just developed a leak, so I'm getting a replacement part.

My wife flosses everyday and has really good teeth. I don't floss near enough.... if I skip more than 1 week, it will bleed a bit for a couple of days, then it stops bleeding so keep it up.
Try different types of floss.... ribbon, waxed, etc until you find one you like.

My dentist made me enter an alarm on my phone, everyday at 8pm to remind me to floss..... that way I never forget.

Also, if you have Dental at work, you should be entitled to 1 or 2 Dentist visits per year. These are normal visits, with Xrays, etc....

You might also be entitled to extra dentist descaling visits, on top of your normal visit(s). (Dentists don't like to advertise this as they don't make as much $$ but you should ask if this is an option.)

BTW, I'm not promoting any of these, I don't own one, but have been interested....just not enough to pull the trigger.
How are the cordless ones vs corded ones?
