About the Waterpik Ultra Jet-is it personal or could be used by more than one person?

answer 1
More than one.I would order more tips from them.

answer 2
It comes with 6 different interchangeable tips/attachments, each one being different. I will assume that if each person does not use the other person's tip, AND the person is someone you regularly make out with anyways (aka, sharing mouth germs), then that's doable.

However, I would not recommend sharing with other members of the family. This is because when I've used it, water accumulating in my mouth will occasionally drip out of my mouth and onto the handle. I don't know what kinds of germs I am leaving behind on the handle into which the tips insert. But if the people are super strict about using clorox wipes on the handle after each use, I suppose it's possible to share the machine (not tips) with any family member??

If you have different heads it could be used by more than one person. But I would not share the same heads with anyone because they do go in your mouth. It comes with about 6 or 7 different types of heads and you can order more from the manufacturer.

No, because it's complete different idea. Tiny water stream clean up all hidden spaces in your mouse. I use it 2-4 times a day for 5! years and can't live without it.
Also my gum stop bleeding aftrer first week. You can brush and floss your mouth few times, but right after it you use water pick and find plenty of food residue in sink.

The unit I got came with a few different attachments.

From the images on the box, I woudld think they come pretty standard. These include: Plaque Seeker, Classic Jet, Toothbrush, Orthodontic, Pik Pocket, & Tounge cleaner.

Keep in mind though that the heads are all really small, and you should still use an actual toothbrush (with toothpaste) and not just the Water Pik alone.

You can use it with mouth wash, but even after a few uses the taste of the mouth wash remains. I would not use it with mouth wash unless you plan to use it only with mouth wash. The instructions say you can, use mouthwash with the pik, but say it may shorten the life of the pik.
