I am so glad to find an oral irrigator that takes up so little space and is so simple! I had one like this many years ago and lost it during a move. Since then, all I could find on store shelves is the waterpik, which is bulky, clumsy and WAY overengineered for what it does. The Redi Breeze works well, is easy to install and doesn't clutter up my sink with unnecessary paraphanalia. I took this out of the package and had it installed within 5 minutes without any tools
Reversing and preventing gum disease relies on daily plaque control. But while brushing your teeth every day is a good start, it simply isn't enough. That’s why dental professionals recommend oral irrigation as an effective way to reduce plaque buildup without the tedium of flossing. Using an oral irrigator like those produced by OralBreeze for just 15 seconds after brushing can significantly improve the overall health of your teeth and gums, according to recent dental studies.
But you can’t reap these benefits just by buying an oral irrigator. You have to use it every day. The "toxic stew” of trapped food particles, bacteria and saliva known as plaque hardens into tartar in just 24 hours and then can only be removed by a dentist. So unless you commit to getting rid of plaque every day, no matter what, this contaminated crust will build up and inflame your gums, eventually leading to advanced gum disease.
Many oral irrigation products are large appliances with bulky tanks that take up valuable counter space and are just too much of a pain to set up and use. As a result, 90% of dental irrigators sit in bathroom cabinets or under the sink collecting dust, rather than removing plaque like they should. Out of sight, out of mind! However, OralBreeze products are designed to easily connect to your bathroom faucet or showerhead, without blocking them, so they are always ready to use.
