Frequently Asked Questions About the Waterpik Waterflosser

Dental health is something that many of us take for granted. Brushing and flossing regularly with twice annual visits to the dentist often keeps our teeth and gums in good shape. But unfortunately, our schedules can cause us to be less consistent in our efforts since the whole process takes time. In addition, for some individuals the regular routine just isn't enough. Perhapsthey have deeper pockets aroundtheir teeth where food deposits hide from brushes and dental floss or maybe their gums are receding just related to the aging process.Whatever the reason, traditional brushing and flossing don't always work well. This is where products like the Waterpik WaterFlosser come into the picture. These devices can have an important role in dental health but for those who have never used one, it's important to understand their benefits and drawbacks beforemaking a purchase. 1. What exactly does the Waterpik doIt uses a stream of pulsating water to brush or floss your teeth. The force of the water stream or water pressure can be varied and different tips can be used to accomplish different objectives. Some tips have brushes that allow you to brush and others offer just a focused stream of water for the purpose of flossing without dental floss. 2. Is Waterpik the only device of it's kindNo, there are several brands of power flossers. Conair for instance offers a water flosser as well. Many power flossers don't use the water stream, they behave more like traditional dental floss and don't offer the same flexibility with a variety of tips. 3. What are the benefits of using a Waterpik WaterFlosser over traditional flossingSome people find it more pleasant. It is generally considered to be easier to use than dental floss and consumes less time as well. The mouth is left feeling fresh and clean afterward and there is no feeling of trauma to the gums, no breaking dental floss, and no having to wind the floss around your fingers. This quicker, easier, more pleasant experience helps increase compliance with routine dental care.Some dentists alsoreport greater effectiveness as well; up to 80% more effective than using traditional floss. The water stream is particularly successful for those who have deep pockets.The Waterpik also has special attachments that work well for people with special needs. For instance, there are special cleaning tips for people with braces and for those with orthodontic work.4. Are there any drawbacksCost could be a drawback for some people. For the Waterpik WaterFlosser Ultra, the upfront costis generallyaround $55-$65. Certainly more than a toothbrush and a single pack of dental floss. In addition, the tips occassionally have to be replaced, perhaps every 6 months for a cost of around $8 to $9.5. I need to be able to floss at lunch time while I'm at work, will I need to use traditional floss and a toothbrush at those timesNot necessarily. While the Ultra unit cited above isn't portable, there are portable Waterpik devices that could easily pack inside a purse, briefcase, or backpack allowing you to complete your dental care routine at lunchtime or during a break between classes. The portable units are less expensive, battery powered devices.6. How do I know if I need a WaterpikCertainly, many people use a Waterpik just because they prefer the experience. However, talking to your dentist is the best way to determine whether or not this device could really improve your dental health overall. It may be indicatedif you currentlyavoid brushing/flossing because it's unpleasant,your current routine isn't enough, oryou have special circumstances (such as deep pockets) thatmake the water jet a better option.

Hundreds Protest Kidnapping' in Norway's Child Welfare System
Driving rain in Oslo didn't put the several hundred protesters off from making their viewpoint heard, as they assembled by the city's Central Station, before marching towards the parliament building. Banners were held aloft, with messages including: "Children are not business," and, "Bring back our children." They are angry at the Norwegian foster care system 'Barnevernet,' (Child Protection Service), which has seen families in the country lose their children for alleged abuses, such as accidently dislodging a child's loose tooth. Eva Michalkova, who is originally from the Czech Republic, has felt the wrath of the Barnevernet, after she lost her two children."It's a mixture of feelings. It's sadness, frustration, it's a feeling you you don't know what to expect and all you can say is used against you, all you can do is used against you. So it is very difficult," she told RT's Ruptly video agency.READ MORE: 'Similar to Nazi foster care': Czech president slams Norwegian child welfare Michalkova's case stems from an incident in 2011, when her two sons were taken into protective care, after one of her children told a nursery teacher that his father had "groped inside his pajamas," the Norwegian online newspaper Nettavisen reported. No charges were ever brought over the incident, but the Barnevernet placed the children into two separate foster families. The children's parents have since divorced, but Eva is fighting a legal battle to regain custody of her kids. The incident brought a furious response from the Czech President Milos Zeman, who in February compared the Barnevernet system to Nazi Germany's infamous 'Arian breeding program.'"The boys are in a foster facility similar to Lebensborn. Their mother can meet them for 15 minutes twice a year. She must not talk in Czech to them. In other words, the kids are being estranged from their national identity," Zeman said, as cited by the Czech News Agency. In October 2014, the Barnevernet snatched the young son of a Russian couple after the child told classmates that his mother had pulled out a loose tooth. According to Natalya and Sergey Shianok, their son Oskar, who was five at the time, had told fellow kids at his school that his mother had accidently yanked out one of his baby teeth. Natalya explained that she was helping him to pull a T-shirt over his head and knocked out a tooth that was already loose. The Barnevernet said this was child abuse and that the mother had deliberately knocked the tooth out."For the moment Oskar remains in the care of a Norwegian foster family, and his mother has no idea where," says Igor Lapitsky, head of the Russian consulate in Norway, reports RadioVesti.ru.READ MORE: Javelin dentistry: Former Olympic champ removes daughter's tooth with spear In comparison, former US athlete and Olympic gold medal winner, Bryan Clay won praise from across the internet, when he tied a piece of dental floss to a javelin, which he then threw, to dislodge his daughter's loose tooth. Marius Reikeras, a human rights activist is critical of the Norwegian government's spending on Barnevernet, saying that the money could be more effectively channeled elsewhere."We are putting a lot of money in the Child Welfare System. No country in the world puts more money per capita than the government when it comes to CPS. If we could help these families, if we could provide these families with the money we put into the CPS system instead, I am pretty much sure that we could help almost every family," he said. Norway's Child Welfare Services says on their website that they are committed to providing help and support to children, adolescents and parents who are experiencing challenges or difficulties within the family. The service adds that parents are responsible for providing care and protection for their children. "The Child Welfare Services must base its actions on the best interests of the child. Sometimes the child's best interests conflict with those of the parents. The Child Welfare Services' first duty is to provide help and support to the parents, so they can take good care of their children," the service's website said.
