The Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser is an oral sanitizer that provides a very strong water jet, able to clean the spaces between the teeth. It 93% more efficient than the thong, according to the manufacturer. The water pressure is from 10 a 90 PSI with 1200 pulses per minute. It removes debris and bacteria lodged deep between teeth and below the gum line. It is also very useful to help in cleaning for those with dentures, braces, crowns, implants, bridges, etc.
The Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser has 10 water pressure settings and comes with 6 colored tips: 2 classical (Water Jet), and 4 specific purposes: crevicular, Orthodontic, brush and plate remover.
I can say that Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser is actually more effective than flossing. The wire sometimes leave fragments and must be used several times to thoroughly clean. The Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser often does not leave residues. The feeling is of being with sparkling clean teeth. According to the manufacturer, it removes 99% the board of the treated areas and gently massages the gums increasing oral health.
I've been using only the maximum speed, but there speeds for all tastes. At the beginning I had a bit of trouble, I wet the whole bathroom using Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser, but then I'm used to and using it has become quite a trivial task, even easier than brushing and flossing.
The reservoir Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser holds up to 650ml of water, enough 90 second operation, which is the time necessary for a good cleaning. The noise is very acceptable, very similar to water blasters and the like VAP, but much lower.
Note that the US is used 120V voltage only. This equipment works perfectly in the Brazilian regions where uses 127V, but does not work in regions that use 220V. Anyone who wants to 220V version buying abroad will have to look in European or Asian sites. Another option is a converter 220 110V. The manual comes in English, French and Spanish. Use power plug US standard (Type A), then you need a adapter if you want to plug them into the sockets of the new Brazilian standard.
The Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser was the recommendation of my dentist. I tried in national stores and found absurd prices as £ 500,00 by this same equipment as in Amazon costs only $ 45,00 today (the price has varied, but always gets around that). Yeah, gives to buy 5 in Amazon with the price of one in Brazil.
Given the huge disparity in prices, I decided I had to buy abroad even. I took a checked in eBay, I found some prices a bit higher and savory freight. So I decided to buy in Amazon and use the services again Shipito.
I used the free shipping from Amazon to send the packet to my address in Shipito da California. I used this feature to avoid invoices with value drawing attention in the box. The tax in California gave $ 4,23, but worth it because the freight to Brazil from California is cheaper than from Oregon. The application was done on days 24/02/2013 and on day 28/02 the package was already the Shipito.
The dimensions of the package Amazon according to Shipito are 15″×9″×8″ (38× 22 × 19 cm) and the weight is 2,70 lbs (1,22 kg). Had previously chosen the option to open the package and take 3 Photos (the cost of US $ 1,00) to have damage insurance and also to make sure that the Amazon hit the request. They took even more 3 toast pictures.
Chose the shipping via USPS Priority Mail, that is reasonably fast, medians have chances to come duty free and has a good tracking all the way. The total cost was $ Shipito 57,40, which cost more than the product, but even so the total cost is still less than half that buy in Brazil. He could have chosen a cheaper freight, but preferred the speed and security of USPS Priority Mail. Here is the summary of spending Shipito in the table below:
|Package type (for Customs):||gift|
|Shipping method:||USPS Priority Mail|
|Mailout fee:||$8.50 (Small package (up to 30lbs))|
A Shipito is quick in posting. On the same day the package was already posted, went to Brazil in 03/03, coming 15/03. Then went to the customs where he was released without taxes. It was delivered the day 22/03, little less than a month after.

I was quite pleased with the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser. Earlier exitei to buy, I put aside for a while afraid that would be a hindrance that I would not use. Now only regret not having discovered this product before. The investment cost is eventually, which invested in it will save on cleaning in dentists, and even possible restorations virtues of cavities in the interproximal surfaces of the teeth, which are commonly caused by waste that end up hiding between the teeth and sometimes flee to the thong.
