BURST Water Flosser | My Dental AdvocateBURST Oral Care seeks to “turn an outdated industry dominated by dinosaurs upside down.” BURST relies on thousands of BURST ambassadors (like me) – hygienists, dentists and dental assistants – to help design, refine and market. Their oral care products include a sonic toothbrush, kids’ sonic toothbrush, dental floss, toothpaste, whitening strips, whitening trays and water flosser. Also, they recently launched an oral probiotic supplement.

The BURST water flosser is modern, compact and cordless. It easily cleans hard-to-reach areas where harmful bacteria like to hide. In addition, the water flosser was developed after thousands of hours of research, development and BURST ambassadors’ suggestions. So say goodbye to clunky, immobile water flossers and welcome this portable multiple-mode water flosser. After using it for weeks, I was impressed with the portability and power along with three different flossing modes.

BURST water flosser

First impressions

The water flosser arrived neatly packaged containing the portable unit, water-resistant traveling bag, USB charging cable, classic water flosser tip and quick start instructions. The compact, cordless water flosser is surprisingly lightweight even after filling the water reservoir. The classic tip was easy to insert and swiveled 360 degrees to clean all surfaces. In addition, it features three flossing modes (turbo, standard and pulse) and up to 80 days of flossing on a single charge!

The water flosser reservoir holds enough water for about 30-40 seconds before needing to refill. Also, the water flosser is water-resistant, so I recommend using it in the shower to spare your bathroom from water spray. In addition, it was comfortable to use along the gumline at a 90-degree angle. The standard mode was powerful and effective at removing food between the teeth. If you desire more power, hold down the smiley face button to switch between modes. I recommend using pulse mode (with the Ortho tip) if you have braces. Overall, we were impressed with how efficient, high-powered and portable the BURST water flosser was.


Innovative features

As someone who prefers traditional string floss, I’m always skeptical when testing water flossers. However, after trying this water flosser for several weeks, I was pleasantly surprised with how fun and effective it was to use. I love that you can switch tips (sold separately), each with a unique design.

Effectiveness

After using BURST water flosser for weeks, I was pleased with its portability and usefulness. As I mentioned, I prefer traditional string floss; however, this water flosser is having me re-think my nightly oral care routine. In addition, the four available color options are incredibly slick and stylish.
