      A more high tech way to floss

      When I bought my second Philips electric toothbrush there was a promotion on in Tesco where I could buy this electric flosser from the same range for half price, that made the flosser £27 and because my dentist is always telling me that I should floss more I thought I would buy it at this cheap price and see if I had any more luck with something that I do not have to put anything between my teeth because the feeling of using floss makes me feel sick sometimes. This works by using a mixture of air and water to blast between your teeth, it removes food debris and plaque as effectively as using floss because the blast is high pressure so works in the same way as flossing in the more traditional way. I had never heard of an electric flosser before so was quite excited to use it, unlike my toothbrush this came with a flat battery and a big warning sticker on the box that said to charge it for at least 24 hours before using it for the first time (I forced myself to stick to that because I didn't want to break the battery before I had even used the flosser!!).

      As I have already tried to explain, this is an electric flosser. You fill the reservoir with water and switch the flosser on using the main power button that is on the handle, when you are ready to start flossing all you have to do is place the end of the nozzle against your gum line and press the second button that is located further up the handle. As long as you keep this button pressed down the flosser will keep bursting out jets of air and water and it is up to you to learn how long to hold it at each tooth for to get the best effect.

      The nozzles need to be replaced but I don't know how long each one should last for, I think it would be the same amount of time as a toothbrush head because of oral hygiene reasons but I don't understand why this product could not have been made with a permanent nozzle because the only area of it that is touching your mouth is the guide tab that is on the top of the nozzle. This tab is there so that when you run the flosser around your gum line it shows the indent between the teeth for accuracy of the bursts of air and water, it works very well and I think without this tab it would be an awkward process to use this machine to floss my teeth.
