What Is It

Our review will help you choose a perfect irrigator. Irrigation is a simple way to take care about your oral cavity by cleaning out more plaque and bacteria between the gumline and teeth under the water pressure. They also perform massage on the gums to improve their condition and increase blood circulation. The working principle is very simple: you fill a tank with the water or some medical liquid and then direct the water flow into the oral cavity. The pressure is adjusted with a tiny pump embedded in the device. 

Read about the Electric Toothbrushes. They effectively fight bacteria and built-in plaque but in a slightly different way.  

What To Look For

Firstly, you need to decide how you are going to use the oral irrigator. There are two Types of irrigators to choose from: stationary and portable. For home use, you should better buy a stationary one. This type has a fairly compact size so that it can be easily put instead of the soap dish. If you travel a lot, look for portable irrigators. These models are suitable for use in the baths where there is no outlet. Despite their shorter lifetime and small capacity, still they can be a great device for you.

A further aspect is Cleaning Technology which is determined by the characteristics of the water pressure. The irrigators that work by means of the constant water flow supply are known to be effective yet a bit outdated. They are often replaced by the devices that perform pulsating cleaning. Pulsation of the water jet is usually short, almost imperceptible, but effective when it comes to cleaning the plaque. The other technology used here and there in irrigator production is the micro-droplet technology. Thanks to this technology, the water in the tank saturated with the oxygen, and the water flow directed in the oral cavity is more effective while killing pathogenic microflora. 

Construction peculiarities include cleaning velocity modes, a volume of the tank for the liquid, a number and types of tips. The ability to control the water jet pressure is implemented in all irrigators and is very important. The presence of interchangeable tips will be a huge advantage. Some models are equipped only with a standard tip, others have additional. The capacity of the liquid tanks is different in various types of irrigators. Portable irrigators have a smaller volume. Also, there are water flossers without the tank, they are connected directly to the faucet and come into force by the pressure of water at the tap.

Many irrigators can be equipped with Additional Functions. For example, rotating tips, a timer, a directing tip for a proper water pressure, the possibility of adjusting the water pressure level and other characteristics. These features can make irrigators more effective and useful.
