Oral irrigators are an excellent addition to anyone’s oral hygiene routine. They are designed to help remove plaque, food particles, and bacteria that can be missed with traditional brushing and flossing. However, not everyone knows how to use oral irrigators correctly. Fly Cat will guide you through the correct way to use oral irrigators for optimal results.
How to Use Oral Irrigators
Before using an oral irrigator, it is recommended to brush your teeth and rinse your mouth with water. Here are the steps to follow:
-Fill the water tank: Remove the water tank from the device and fill it with warm water.
-Choose the pressure setting: Select the pressure setting that suits your needs. If you’re new to using oral irrigators, start with the lowest pressure setting and gradually increase as you get accustomed to the sensation.
-Lean over the sink: Lean over the sink and place the tip of the oral irrigator into your mouth.
-Turn on the device: Turn on the device and allow the water to flow out slowly. Move the tip around your mouth, aiming the stream towards the gumline and between teeth. Take care not to aim the stream directly at the gums, as this could cause damage or discomfort.
-Spit out the water: After using the oral irrigator, spit out the water and rinse your mouth thoroughly with water.
Using oral irrigators correctly is crucial to achieving optimal results. Remember to start with a low pressure setting, aim the stream towards the gum and between teeth and clean the device regularly.
