Technological progress is actively developing in absolutely every sphere of human existence. This applies not only to household appliances, gadgets or the automotive industry, but also to medical products. Largely thanks to the original developments of researchers and engineers, units designed to preserve beauty and health regularly appear on the medical device market. This also applies to oral care devices.
If you observe hygiene, you will be able to keep your teeth healthy for many years, prevent the occurrence of bad breath, various diseases such as caries, periodontitis, and so on. Unfortunately, even the use of a toothbrush, mouthwashes, and dental floss is often not enough to prevent plaque build-up and to completely get rid of food debris. It is in this case that the irrigator comes to the aid of people.
This is original equipment designed for quality oral care. If in many other countries such equipment is found in almost every home, then in our country people have not yet been able to fully realize the benefits of such an apparatus. Some people believe that the irrigator is strictly a professional product, and only dentists use it.
What myths surround the irrigator?
Some people believe that there is no special benefit from this device. However, they are greatly mistaken. The irrigator allows you to effectively remove bacterial plaque, food debris in the most inaccessible places, for example, in gum pockets. With its help, the gums receive additional care in the form of a massage, the tongue is completely cleared of bacteria. With the help of an irrigator, you can get a very powerful jet of liquid, which will be under significant pressure. It is with its help that it is possible to remove plaque from the surface of the teeth, interdental spaces — something similar cannot be done with a toothbrush.
Many people think that irrigators are the same, but they can differ significantly from each other in terms of power, functionality and efficiency of use. A lot depends on the brand and equipment of the device. In general, there are several varieties of these devices — flow, portable, stationary. At the same time, portable and stationary are used much more often, but flow-through ones are not very common.
Stationary units are usually characterized by decent overall dimensions, as a rule, they are powered by the mains, so you will need to install an outlet in the bathroom to use them. If necessary, you can purchase additional nozzles for the device, which will make it suitable for all family members. One of the key points is that stationary irrigators are characterized by significant power — about 890 kPa. Portable devices operate on battery power, so you can easily take them with you on long trips, business trips, and so on.
People often refuse to purchase such equipment, believing that it is difficult and traumatic to use. However, special skills in its application are not required. Each device comes with detailed instructions — if necessary, even a small child can use it. At the same time, the device is not too expensive, although you can find elite versions that can hit your pocket quite sensitively.
Today we would like to present you the newest irrigator of the highest quality — B.Well WI-933. It is manufactured using exclusively high-quality components, which ensures its high performance and long service life.
A little about the manufacturer
B.Well is a fairly large European company that dates back to 2004. In just a few years of its existence, the company has managed to win the trust of consumers in many countries. Products are not too expensive, but the quality of all devices is at a very high level. The company appeared on the Russian market in 2007, and three years later the number of representative offices in the country was already several dozen.
Today, the head office is located in Switzerland, thanks to which it is possible to ensure the highest possible quality of products and contribute to the development of the brand. When developing and manufacturing products, not only time-tested technologies, but also the latest unique developments come to the fore. This allows the company’s engineers to develop devices that combine quality, reliability and, at the same time, affordability.
What is the B.Well WI-933 irrigator?
The device is a stationary type, which is designed for use by the whole family. It can work not only from the network, but also from the built-in battery — there is no other device with similar functions on the market. It has everything you need for professional cleaning of the mouth and teeth.
Products operate in a pulsed mode, which greatly increases the efficiency of the unit. With this irrigator, you can easily select the required jet pressure for each family member — there are 10 power modes at once, which vary in the range from 206 to 862 kPa. This parameter can be adjusted smoothly or in steps — the pressure can be adjusted depending on the user’s feelings. It is worth noting that the device is equipped with an original children’s mode, which will gently take care of the teeth and gums of a small child.
The nozzle can rotate around its axis by 360 degrees, so it can be used to reach the most inaccessible places. This product comes with 8 nozzles. Of these, three are standard, and there are also special designs used to clean the tongue, gums, braces, and various artificial structures. For their storage, a special case is provided, located under the cover of the device. The set also comes with a storage bag. The capacity of the water tank is 800 ml — this amount is quite enough for full use. The design includes an ergonomic pen holder. The legs are made of special rubber — they do not slip, regardless of the type of surface. The water hose is very long, so the device is very easy to use.

How to prepare the irrigator for work?
Initially, you should connect the device to the mains or charge the built-in battery. The water tank from the main unit must be firmly held by hand so that it does not fall out of the holder. It is necessary to fill it with exceptionally warm water, preferably boiled or distilled, so that it contains a minimum amount of impurities. Warm water is needed so that in the process of working with this device there are no unpleasant or painful sensations.
The nozzle is inserted into the handle, the pressure force is regulated by a special rotary knob. The same element is responsible for turning on the structure: when it is in the extreme left position, the device is turned off, when the knob is turned to the right, a weak click should be heard.
You can turn on the device only after the nozzle is in your mouth. The direction of the jet can be changed if desired, but there is a basic rule — it is delivered at a right angle to the gum. Lips while working with an irrigator should be kept closed — this will help prevent splashing of water. According to the manufacturer, it is advisable to start with the far side teeth, gradually approaching the front.
Distilled or boiled water must be poured into the tank so that lime deposits or deposits do not form in the device, as this will ultimately adversely affect the condition of the device itself. If the device has been idle for a long time, it must be thoroughly rinsed before use. To do this, proceed as follows: water is poured into the tank, the strongest pressure is turned on, while the jet should be directed into the sink. The manufacturer does not recommend using too warm water, the temperature of which will exceed 40 degrees.

Testing impressions, pros and cons
After using the device, we were very pleased with it. I would like to note the high quality of assembly and packaging, besides, we managed to understand its management in just a couple of seconds. It is convenient to change the pressure with one hand, and the change in the force of water pressure is felt immediately. It is recommended to flush the device at least once a month.
We poured boiled water, heated to 25 degrees, into the tank. At first she seemed a little cool, but there was no pain or discomfort. The device was tested for a week — twice every day, after which we dismantled it: no lime deposits or sediment were found.
It is convenient enough that the device can work both from the mains and from the battery. For example, we did not have to lay an additional cable line in the bathroom. We charged the device in the kitchen and used it in the bathroom. The functions assigned to such a device are fully performed.
If you have weakened gums, then do not be alarmed if they bleed at first. Of course, these sensations are not pleasant, but over time, the gums will gain tone, gum pockets will decrease, and the amount of tartar will decrease. Now I would like to briefly talk about the advantages and disadvantages of this device. Let’s start with the pros:
- The ability to work both from the battery and from the network;
- Quite acceptable cost;
- Safe for dentures, braces, crowns, various other dental systems;
- The capacity of the water tank is quite enough for a complete cleaning of the oral cavity of an adult;
- Quite a large selection of nozzles;
- Smooth power adjustment;
- There are anti-slip feet;
- Acceptable overall dimensions — the device will not take up too much space even in a very compact bathroom;
- There is a compartment for storing nozzles;
- The warranty period is two years.

Naturally, there are also disadvantages. There are not many of them — only one seemed to us the most significant. The manufacturer does not recommend keeping the tank constantly filled with water. After using the device, it will have to be emptied every time. This is due to the fact that even when using distilled water, a precipitate will form in it, which is quite problematic to remove.
As a result, we can say the following about this irrigator: it is recommended to buy, but before purchasing it is necessary to consult with a specialist. The dentist must give his positive opinion regarding the use of such a device.
