When I was 15 I got braces and a palatal expander and braces which I had to wear for 2 and 1/2 long long years. I became very anal about brushing my teeth and flossing (yes I was that girl who carried her toothbrush in her purse and brushed after lunch – and any other time after I ate.) Due to the sensitivity of my mouth from soo many procedures flossing became literally a pain. My gums would bleed on a daily basis and my mouth would be sore, yet I continued like a good orthodontic patient and continued my regular brushing and flossing pattern.
Fast forward a few years (ok more then a few) I am still brushing and flossing constantly. I still have my bottom retainer, and flossing can be a bit difficult, (ever tried to get a floss pik or regular floss under a retainer? Impossible!) and with my daughter being new to the braces world, I knew that trying out a waterpik would be a great idea for us. I must say I am incredibly impressed with the Aquarius Professional Water flosser.
The easy and more effective way to floss™, the Waterpik® Aquarius™ Professional Water Flosser is the most advanced water flosser ever. It is clinically proven up to 50% more effective for improving gum health vs. string floss and proven to remove up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas in 3 seconds.
Featuring a new compact and contemporary design, the Aquarius includes on/off water control on the handle, an LED information panel, and 7 water flosser tips. New pulse-modulation technology provides maximum plaque removal (Floss Mode) and enhanced gum stimulation and improved circulation (Hydro-Pulse Massage Mode). The convenient one-minute timer with a 30-second pacer ensures thorough water flossing of all areas.
The Waterpik® Aquarius™ Water Flosser (WP-660) is perfect for anyone with braces, implants, crowns, bridges, or periodontal pockets. And Waterpik® Water Flossers are the only brand clinically proven to be more effective than traditional dental floss and Sonicare® Air Floss for reducing plaque, gingivitis, and gum disease.
The benefits of using a water flosser vs string floss is amazing to me – especially for those who have braces. I know before I had my braces taken off I was very concerned about plaque build up around the metal pieces of my braces.. thus why I carried my toothbrush with me everywhere. I don’t want my daughter to have to deal with the same, and so far it’s been an amazing difference with not only how her teeth look, but the time she takes in the bathroom flossing (and we know how long girls take to get ready!) Here are some additional benefits of the Aquarius Water Flosser:
- Effective Plaque Removal – Proven to remove up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas in three seconds (there is NO WAY a string floss could do that!!)
- Healthier Gums – Clinically proven up to 50% more effective for improving gum health vs. string floss
- Ideal for Implants – Clinically proven up to 2X as effective for improving gum health around implants vs. string floss
- Essential for Braces – Clinically proven up to 3X as effective for removing plaque around braces vs. string floss
- Removes plaque and debris deep between teeth and below the gum line where brushing and traditional flossing can’t reach
- Massages and stimulates gums to enhance circulation and keep your gums strong and healthy
- Great for people with crowns, bridges, veneers and other dental work
- Leaves your mouth feeling incredibly fresh and clean
- Healthier Gums Guaranteed in 14 days or your money back

I am so bad about flossing – I seriously need to get one. Actually, my dentist has recommended getting one a few times.
I didn’t even know they had these for flossing. It’s going on my Christmas wish list!
With Invisalign I have to take care of my teeth a little more than normal too, but fortunately my teeth aren’t bleeding you poor girl!! Love that this is a great addition to my normal routine.
I want one of these. I need motivation to floss sometimes. I just hate it.
Thanks for the info on the Waterpik flosser! My daughter is getting braces next month and this looks like it might be a good option for her!
I didn’t even know such a product existed! I will definitely have to try this out because I am terrible at flossing!
I’m really bad about flossing, too. I’m sure if I had one of these, I’d use it every day.
My daughter has braces, this Waterpik may be a good option for her. Good dental hygiene is so important, this looks like it could help a lot.
Awesome! I want one! I have retainers behind my teeth and it is very hard to floss 🙁
I love this I think I would floss more and I would def do my kids and pretend I am the dentist lol
We have been using the Waterpik water flosser for a few weeks now and I love it! I hated using dental floss because it always made my gums bleed – so not a problem anymore!
I just went to the dentist yesterday and they told me I need to start flossing more! My mom swears by one of these!
I’ve never owned a water pik before but I think it’s time I invest in one. I didn’t realize there were so many advantages to using one.
When I had braces as a child, I had a a waterpick. I loved it!
I have always heard such great things about Waterpik. I would like one of these for my family.
My ex-in-laws always swore by their Waterpik, but I have never tried one. I think I need to give one a try!
We have one of these too and it’s amazing. My husband has tough luck w genetics and has had tons of work done thru the years- he’s wanted a water pik forever!! Now that I’ve tried I get why. It’s amazing.
I’ve thought about getting one of these so many times! Mostly because they look fun. lol
I floss everyday but sometimes it can be scary if it tugs a bit to much. This would be amazing to have for those times.
I am awful about flossing. I need one of these so I can be better!
I’d love to try the waterpik. I think it must be so much nicer to use than string!
I have been on the fence about getting one of these. They seem great.
I really need to try one of these. I hate flossing, I do it, but hate it. I bet this would be the answer.
I’ve been thinking about getting one of these. I have two permanent retainers and they can be a pain in the backside to get really clean underneath. Time to get shopping.
I remember growing up and seeing these in all my friends bathrooms. I’ve never had one and have been thinking about getting one.
I have one of these (older one) and we love it. My kids use it too!
I never tried a water pik before but I am thinking about looking into one.
We have had a couple of these over the years..wonderful for kids in braces. Makes cleaning so easy.
I love to floss anyway. I keep floss picks nearby at all times, lol. I have heard so many wonderful things about the Waterpik though. I remember my grandma had one when I was younger and she always LOVED it! I think I need to follow her (and yours) lead.
I haven’t tried a waterpik yet but it looks really useful for helping keep teeth healthy. Gonna have to check out the site and the free shipping offer
Ugh, I had braces and an expander for 2 years too! Flossing was such a pain then.
I could stand to floss more… just like many others, we make excuses…
These are so awesome, I’ve never seen anything like that. I agree with Sherryl, great for kids with braces.
Flossing had always been a challenge for me. This looks really nice! I had a real basic one back when I had braces.
I’m terrible at flossing. The Waterpik Aquarius looks like it makes it easy and takes away an excuse I have not to!
I haven’t tried this model yet but my daughter has a kids one that she loves.
