If you’re serious about mouth and gum health, the Waterpik Nano is an easy and effective way to floss – faster and easier than using string floss and three times as effective. And all it uses is water.

We all know the importance of flossing but just how easy and effective flossing can be all depends on how you do it. If you use the new Waterpik Nano water flosser you will quickly find it’s really easy.

The new Waterpik Nano is a compact version of the previous model that allows you to floss effectively using just water.

When many people think of flossing in the traditional way with string, they see it as a chore –  and it also takes a bit of time

But with the Waterpik nano it’s fast and easy to get the job done while delivering the same results for removing plaque and food between your teeth.

The device delivers water at three different pressure settings to clean out any gunk between your teeth.

Think of it as a high pressure hose for your mouth which can remove up to 99.9 per cent of plaque from treated areas, braces and even below the gumline.

It has been clinically proven to be 50 per cent more effective for improving gum health than string floss.

So even if you have implants, crowns, bridges and veneers, the Waterpik Nano is safe to use and can help you get that clean feeling.

The Waterpik Nano is actually 50 per cent smaller than previous Waterpik countertop units which means it’s not hard to find space in your bathroom for your daily flossing routine.

Setup is really easy. You simply fill the reservoir with warm water and click it into the base.

You then insert one of the tips until it clicks into place in the handle, select your pressure from one of three settings and turn it on.

First time users may take a little while to get used to the sensation but it won’t be long before you’re navigating your mouth expertly and flushing out any debris between your teeth.

For our review, we did notice particles in the sink that had been removed with the Waterpik Nano.

It’s important to stand over the sink to let the water drain from your mouth but it’s not too different or harder than brushing your teeth.

You are meant to aim the tip along your gumline and pause briefly between teeth.

And a word of warning, always keep the Waterpik tip in your mouth while it’s turned on otherwise you will spray water everywhere.

It only takes a few cleans to get used to the actions and you’ll have that clean mouth feeling.

But it would have been great to have the on/off switch on the handle itself.

As it is now, you have to keep your head over the sink and reach over to the unit with your free hand to switch it off.

There are three pressure settings and we recommend starting off at a low pressure until you get used to it.

You’ll be surprised at what you’ll see being washed out of your mouth especially if you haven’t flossed for a while.

And when you’re done, simply detach the reservoir, turn it upside down and place it back on top of the unit as a cover.

Even if you are a regular brusher, flossing will offer a clean a brush just cannot achieve.

And with the Waterpik Nano, it’s three times as effective as using regular string floss.

The new Waterpik Nano isn’t just physically smaller than its predecessor – it’s also cheaper at $139.95.

It’s available now from the Shaver Shop and Chemist Warehouse.
