My husband really wanted one of these Interplak Water Jets and finally bought it about a month ago.
We already have a Sonicare toothbrush system and he flosses, but was feeling this jet system would help to control his problem of sensitive gums and prevent gingivitis, that he once got. That experience was very unpleasant for him, as the Dentist had to scrape all of the tartar that had built up under the base of his teeth and under the gums - because he brushes way too hard.
The Interplak Water Jet has over 2, 650 water pulses per minute.
There are 6 tips included - 2 water jet tips (so 2 people can have their own)
1 subgingival tip - my husband uses this tip the most and really likes it
1 brush head tip
1 tongue cleaner tip - he claims this tip can be quite messy because as you scrape to clean your tongue, the water is also pulsating out and getting all over the place.
1 dual tip attachment - he has not used this but allows you to clean both sides of a tooth at the same time.
All attachments are made of a hard plastic.
The machine plugs into the electrical outlet and there are no batteries.
The water reservoir top pops up with the flip of a little pop top type lever and makes filling the machine easy to fill and easy to clean.
There is a 3 foot long hose that allows you to stand up or sit down at a good distance from the machine.
The power cord is just as long.
It has an on and off control button and a 7 position Pressure Control knob that allows you to adjust the pulsing action.
There is a two year warranty on this machine.
In my opinion, this machine is really for one person, even though it comes with one extra Water Jet Tip.
As far as the other attachments go, I would NOT use these if my husband or anyone had already used them in their mouth. And I understand that you can clean and sanitize the heads easily, but I think that's just gross and unhealthy.
I do wish this machine had double attachments for two people. Of course this would probably cause it to be larger and more pricey, but I'd prefer that over using something in my mouth someone else had used - regardless if it was cleaned thoroughly.
Overall, my husband is very pleased with this Interplak Water Jet and that's all that matters to me.
