ToothShower Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

GENERAL QUESTIONS

ToothShower is an oral home care appliance developed to remove plaque (biofilm) surrounding and in between the teeth.  It uses a jet stream of water to remove the plaque. It includes three accessories to brush, flush, and massage the teeth and gums, with additional accessories available on our website. This is all done in the shower for an easy and enjoyable way to clean your teeth.

Yes, the ToothShower is an oral irrigator/water flosser. Most oral irrigators on the market today use a battery and need water refilling, while the effectiveness of the ToothShower relies on the power from the shower water pressure. The technologies are different in that the ToothShower enables more compliance, ease of use, no mess to clean up and an endless supply of water.

Yes, studies have shown oral irrigation to be beneficial for healing bleeding gums and removing plaque. Your toothbrush does not fully reach between your teeth and floss can be difficult to use. Teeth have five sides to them, and a toothbrush is only cleaning three of those sides. There are two more sides to each tooth, these sides are where the teeth touch each other. The ToothShower accessories will enable you to clean 100% of your teeth surfaces.

The FDA considers an oral irrigator, tooth brush and a gum massager to all be Class 1 medical devices. The ToothShower is registered and listed with the FDA along with being manufactured in an FDA-registered manufacturer.

No, the ToothShower does not have a battery or require electricity.  This design makes it convenient to use and saves space on the bathroom counter by being located in the shower.

Some people experience an uncomfortable or tickling sensation when water flossing for the first time. It is best to start at the lowest water pressure and gradually increase the water pressure as your gums become more comfortable.

HARDWARE QUESTIONS

When installing the Water Diverter Valve it is best to use the additional washer prior to screwing it onto the shower plumbing pipe.
(Please reference User Manual)

The Water Diverter Valve is intentionally designed to always have water flowing to the ToothShower. Use the Comfort Pressure Dial to turn the water flow OFF/ON to the accessory tips.

Showerhead extension arms are available, which can be screwed onto the ToothShower diverter valve. First remove existing showerhead, second screw on ToothShower diverter valve, third screw onto the diverter the extension arm and lastly screw existing showerhead onto the extension arm.

Press the accessory insertion button to release the accessory tip. Once released, place it into the storage compartment. The next accessory tip is inserted into the handle by hearing a 'click' sound, and pulling on it to make sure it is secure.

WARRANTY & RETURNS

TOOTHSHOWER USE

Yes, since the water force behind the ToothShower technology is adjustable with a comfort dial, it is recommended to start on the lower pressure until your gums are comfortable to the pressure.  Since it is used in the shower, warm water is always available to aid against cold sensitivity. You may find the Sensitive Gum Tip more comfortable, which is available on our website under Accessories.

There are three different ways to easily adjust the water pressure.

First, use the Comfort Pressure Dial by turning it slowly to the right (starting at the OFF position).

Second, turn the Water Diverter Valve Handle to increase or decrease the water pressure to the ToothShower. The more water flow diverted to the ToothShower, the stronger the it’s flow to the accessory tips. The Gum Massager works at its optimal capability with all water diverted to the ToothShower.

Third, some showers can have the water pressure increased or decreased at the shower faucet/knob by pulling or pushing on the knob. It is recommended to start on the lowest water pressure until your gums are comfortable with water flossing.

Yes, some ToothShower models have been designed to be filled with a mouth rinse to kill germs and freshen breath.  You can also use a whitening, desensitizing or fluoridated mouthwash, depending on the desired results. Do not use with mouth rinses containing essential oils as they may damage the device.

Yes, there are four color options (red, blue, white, grey) on the collar of the accessories. The ToothShower comes with the standard white collar. The other colors are available on our website.

The ToothShower model without the mouthwash feature has an additional accessory storage cup to allow for more users.

Yes, the toothbrushes have shorter firmer bristles on the back of the head that can be used to clean debris and dead cells off the tongue.

No, all three accessories reach their own unique areas.  This ensures that plaque is removed thoroughly and helps build better oral care habits. Our BRUSH. FLUSH. MASSAGE. tagline is meant as a suggested order.

It is recommended that this soft-bristled toothbrush be used in a circular motion to brush the entire visible surfaces and the gum line. The dual headed toothbrush is conveniently reaching both the cheek-side and tongue-side simultaneously. You can use and store your own fluoridated toothpaste in the shower. Use a back and forth motion with the short blue bristles (on the backside of the brush head) to clean the chewing surfaces of your teeth. It is recommended that you replace the toothbrush every 3 months. 

The irrigating tip is placed at a 90-degree angle to the gum line. The tip is moved along the gum line to clean above and below the gum and in between the teeth. The irrigating tip can be used on the inside (tongue-side) and outside (cheek-side) of the teeth. It takes about 60 seconds to clean between the teeth by spending a couple of seconds per interproximal (between teeth) space. The irrigating tip is recommended to be replaced every 6 months.

The gum massager/irrigator flushes water from the cheek-side out through tongue-side of the teeth removing food and bacteria debris. It is placed directly onto the gum tissue surrounding the teeth for massaging the gums while irrigating. The massager can be moved left-right / up-down. The gum massager is recommended to be replaced every 6 months. Please note: the gum massager is most efficient with all the water diverted from the showerhead to the ToothShower for this brief time of use.

Flossing is very difficult and frustrating with braces. Oral irrigation has been proven to be very effective in removing debris around orthodontic bands. All three accessories attachments are designed to be effective for use with braces.

Yes, the full depth of the periodontal pocket may not be reached, but the water flushing can assist in treating the progression of the periodontal disease. Please consult with your dental professional as to treating periodontal pockets deeper than 4 mm or if you have recently had periodontal surgery. 

ToothShower has been designed for use by children age 13 years of age and over. Children under age 13 should be supervised by an adult while using the ToothShower.

No, cleaning between the teeth is effective to  promote good oral health whether done once a week or seven times a week. However, to be most effective, at least once a day is recommended.

The universal standard sized piping extending from the shower wall is a ½” pipe size worldwide. In the United States, it is referred to as ½” NPT (National Pipe Threads) and in Europe, Asia and Africa it is ½” BSP (British Pipe Thread). Even though there are two different names for these pipe size standards, they closely match. The difference between these two thread types can be seen in the pitch (angle of the thread); and to compensate for this plumbing, thread tape is recommended and included in the packaging.

No, but for quantities greater than 4, please contact ToothShower directly.
