Me and you are friends, right? I’m going to confess something to you. Remember, this is a judgment-free zone. I have HORRIBLE gums. Yup, it is okay, I know it. Thankfully, I also have really strong teeth. No, I’m not bragging about my teeth. That’s what the dentist tells me. They say that I have strong teeth and that it is a good thing I do because I have really bad gums.
It doesn’t matter how often I brush and floss when I go for a deep cleaning the bacteria in my mouth has helped plaque multiply. I even have areas of my gums that have receded. I know, way TMI. I told you I was confessing. Don’t worry, I’m okay and I have come to terms with my situation.
I’m actually feeling a lot better about it since I’ve gotten my own Waterpik Water Flosser Whitening Professional. I must admit when I received this beauty at an event about a month ago I was feeling a little intimidated by it. I had it and it’s friend the Waterpik Sidekick sitting near my desk almost taunting me daily. I would look at them and think that I NEEDED to open up the box and start using one but then I would think, why bother?
Let me tell you why I needed to bother…using the Whitening Professional even without the whitening tablet made my mouth feel brand new. I am now hooked. I cannot wait to use it daily with the whitening tablets. New smile, here I come! If it makes my mouth feel this good I can’t imagine what it does to a mouth that isn’t dealing with difficulties! I seriously never thought I would say I enjoyed flossing but it makes my mouth feel pretty great and there is even a massage option for after you finish flossing.
Now that I’ve gotten past the intimidation, which made no sense whatsoever when I think about it, I plan to start using the whitening tablets. This thing was so easy to get started. All I had to do was take it out of the box and plug it in. It is so simple to use. You won’t see any photos of the actual process however because there really isn’t a way to make water flossing look beautiful.
The new Waterpik® Whitening Water Flosser offers a variety of features, including the patented whitening infuser, 10 pressure settings, 90 seconds of water capacity, a removable and dishwasher-safe reservoir, in-handle water flow control, and a new swivel-handle hose for improved access to hard-to-reach tooth surfaces.
