Make Flossing Fun for the Whole Family With Waterpik

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Waterpik.

When you think of “family fun”, the places and things that pop in your head are probably along the lines of themed restaurants, board games and even PG-13movies. Each of those are great examples, but what if I told you the one of the items what was missing from that list was dental hygiene? You’d probably look at me with one eyebrow raised and wonder why you have such a weird taste in friends. However, after I showed you my brand new Waterpik Aquarius WaterFlosser, you’ll see exactly what I mean.

Established in 1962, WaterPik has become a staple in the dental industry by creating products that are both reasonably priced and reliable. They figured out a long time ago that flossing, while a crucial part of preventing cavities, gingivitis and bad breath is an often overlooked process. I can only speak for myself but growing up, I found flossing to be boring and I’d regularly skip it. It eventually caught up to me as an adult and as I type this, I’m cringing at the memory of the fillings I was required to get, Now that I’m a parent, I don’t want my kids to make the same mistake as me, so I’ve been working to make the entire hygiene experience-from brushing and especially flossing- something that they actually look forward to.
Enter our WaterPik. As soon as I took it out of the box, my son was awestruck with its sleek design and eye catching attachments. We went through numerous rounds of “Ohh Daddy, what’s this?” as I explained where the water is poured and how with a push of a button, it is pumped through the tube and into your mouth. I also showed him the 7 different tips that come with the WaterPik and what they’d be used for.

I demonstrated the use for my son and once my teeth were cleaned,  I let him have a turn under my and my wife’s close supervision. He had a ball. He pretended that it was his personal robot, whizzing and beeping while spraying his teeth clean. The best part of the entire experience was the fact that while he was having fun, he is reinforcing healthy dental habits that will last him a lifetime.
