The Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser is the easy and more effective way to floss.  It’s perfect for anyone with braces, implants, crowns, bridges, or periodontal pockets.

  1. Remove the reservoir from the base and fill with lukewarm water.
  2. Press the tip firmly into the handle until fully locked into place.  Unless you’ve been instructed to do otherwise, please use the Classic Jet Tip (general use).
  3. For first-time users, start at the lowest setting on the dial and about once a week increment up one number until you reach a comfortable level of pressure.
  4. ALWAYS place the tip in your mouth before turning the unit on.
  5. Lean over your sink and close your lips just enough to allow the water to flow out without splashing.
  6. Aim the tip just above the gumline at a 90 degree angle.
  7. Starting on your back teeth, follow your gumline and pause briefly in between teeth.
  8. Continue around all the teeth front surface and back until entire mouth has been covered.
  9. To change the tip, just push the eject button on the handle.
  10. This unit is designed to take medicaments.  You may add a capful of an antiseptic such as Listerine to the water reservoir.  Please run a small amount of clear water through the line when you are done to ensure that the line does not build up residue.  That will maximize the lifetime of the unit.
