A 19-year-old female asked:
is the tip of the waterpik water flosser supposed to be touching me at the edge of my gums or should there be room between the water floss and my gums?

No: Allow a small distance between your gum and the tip of the instrument so the water stream will remain focused. It makes the instrument more effective. That said if you're more comfortable letting it touch it will still do a good job.
