Advantages: Thorough cleaning
The expensive Braun oxyjet System provides you with a toothbrush and water jet system to clean your teeth and gums thoroughly.
Although I floss every day due to overlapping teeth, there are parts that toothbrushes and floss do not reach. I have a wisdom tooth that refuses to budge and break through my gumline and bacteria lurk there. My tooth is slowly moving, so shortly I shall get it removed, until then I have to be very thorough with cleaning.
My dentist wasn’t keen on removing it until it grows, as it would mean breaking my jaw, ouch!!. She suggested I used the Braun Oxyjet system to clean where the floss couldn’t, and recommended it. But it very, very expensive - anything from £60 to £80. As she realised that I was poor (ahh) she said what she recommended was to use a syringe.
Get a curved monoject 412 syringe from the chemists (its not a sharp syringe, it doesn’t have a needle, its curved and can get into nooks and crannies) or some dentists may give you one for nothing (mine did). Fill the syringe up with either warm water or mouthwash or a combination of both and aim the end of the syringe towards your gums and squirt. Once you get the hang of it you get a powerful jet of water or mouthwash blasting away debris round your teeth.
Try it because if it works for you , you have saved a fortune, if not you haven’t lost anything.
