After getting braces I realized that thread flosser alone would not work for me. I came across water flosser after doing much research on how to take care of teeth while wearing braces. There are rumors that water flossers should not replace traditional floss but I beg to differ especially for someone that has braces. Thread floss often times get tangled in braces wire which prevents the teeth from getting the perfect floss while water flosser deep cleans the teeth, braces brackets etc.
Sterline Counter Top Water Flosser Review
The Sterline Counter Top Water Flosser comes assembled in the box and only requires your selection of nozzle to be used. The reservoir can hold up to 600ml of water and it does not necessarily need to be refilled each time you floss. The unit is 7 3/4 inches tall and does not take up much counter space. The cord is wrapped in a spiral, it is tucked neatly in the base while not in use and extends to approximately 3 ft. long while in use.
The handle has a magnetic hold that helps it to attach to the base once put away properly. If the handle is not attached properly it will fall off the base. The handle has an on/off switch that should be used to turn on the water flow to the nozzle. It also has a push button to release the nozzle from the handle which can be stored inside the case. The main knob on the base also works as an on/off switch that controls the flow of water and timer.
The built-in timer pauses at 30 and 60 sec interval and the pump automatically stops at 2 minutes. The water pressure can be very high depending on the speed you place the main knob.
