► Note
There may be some liquid remaining inside the main
appliance (tank, water suction tube, etc.), but this is remaining
distilled water that was used for the performance (water flow)
test, so there are no health concerns.
► Before using the appliance
Initially bleeding may occur even with healthy gums. This is
caused because the gums are not used to such stimulation.
The bleeding will normally stop within 1 or 2 weeks of use.
There may be a problem with the gums (periodontal disease,
etc.) if the bleeding continues for over 2 weeks. In such cases,
stop using the appliance and consult the dentist.
