Getting rid of small food bits gets tricker at times. And regular flossing do get them out but they also damage gums. Thats where a water flosser comes in.
Now water flossing itself is an effective method of flossing. Sime might disagree. But one of the dentist, we talked to said otherwise.
And I quote:
“When it comes to flossing with pressured water, it’s able to reach up to 6 to 8mm inside the gum lining. A Fluid Lavage Technology is what a buyer should look for as it helps flushing the periodontal pockets and brings plaque bacteria aside.
Waterpik Rechargeable Wp-562
This product is very compact and simple to use, a handy water flosser which you can easily carry along with you on your travels.
Battery life is quite good, which can go for up to a week without charging and when charging is required you can fully charge it in 4 hours.
Waterpik is the only water flosser that is clinically proven by American Dental Association (ADA) so no worries, go ahead and buy this product.
It is cordless and waterproof which makes it possible to use in the shower which is surely a plus point.
This cordless water flosser comes with 3 pressure settings ranging from 45 to 75 PSI to comply with your needs. So you can have cleaner teeth and a fresher mouth within a minute.
This portable technology is globally voltage compatible, which means it can easily be used anywhere in the world without any problem. This feature impressed us because we travel alot.
While trying out this product, we found 4 accessory tips, which means the whole family can be benefited from this product.
Along with all these advantages come some disadvantages as well.
The battery can be charged very quickly within 4 hours but if the charger is not disconnected after that, the battery may damage. It should be turned off when the battery is fully charged.
In short, this noiseless device is worth a try.
As for its cleaning action, it was effective and cleaned up to 99.9% of plaque from all the treated areas, whether it was an implant, crown, bridge, or any other dental work.
Another Waterpik product worth looking at is the Aquarius Water Flosser.
This model claims to have clinical certification, top-class quality, and premium design. And overall it seems to do a pretty good job.
It has seven different flosser tops and while comparing to traditional floss, this one is 50% more effective in its job.
Also comes with 10 pressure settings (10 to 100 PSI) and has around 90 seconds of water capacity.
Keep it cared though, otherwise, there is a very good chance, water starts leaking from this thing, and they don’t offer replacement tanks either.
YaFex Cordless DIY Flosser
This pink professional power water flosser can clean your teeth with a very high-pressure water pulse up to 1600/minute. This strong pressure is more than enough to remove the dental plaque from between your teeth.
This small yet effective device takes very little space in your travel bag as well as in your bathroom cabinet as it is foldable. You can use it anywhere, at your office, home, or during your travel.
Its water pressure is adjustable, there are 3 modes-normal, soft, and pulse which makes it suitable for all age groups.
One more plus point is its 2000 mAh lithium battery which will last for about 20 to 30 days when fully charged in 4 hours.
Another thing that attracted us is its stainless steel water hose which is retractable and is so easy to clean. This feature makes it more hygienic as compared to the ones with silicone hoses which become dirtier and smelly when used for a longer period.
This small-sized easy to use and perfect for traveling water flosser could be anyone’s favorite as it is very efficient and pocket-friendly. The one thing that we are concerned about is its color i.e.pink. Although many people find this color appealing but still some don’t like it.
Otherwise, everything else is perfect, we couldn’t find any drawback in this device.
This cordless water flosser comes with a large tank that can hold up to 300 ml of water. Such capacity makes it easier to floss without filling in the water again and again. In addition to it, the open tank and detachable design help in cleaning it from the inside.
It has 3 cleaning modes i.e. Normal: this mode is used for high water pressure, Soft: this mode is for new users and for people with sensitive teeth who need gentle water pressure. Pulse: this mode is for deep cleaning and massaging gums.
All these modes come with a memory function. The Chosen mode for the next use will be remembered by the flosser even if it has been switched off.
This highly efficient product with 800 times/minute high pressure water pulse can help improve your gum health and tooth cleansing.
It is testified that this water flosser can clean 99% of food remains and plaque. We bet that the normal brush at your home won’t be able to clean with such accuracy!
It consists of 4 jet water flossers along with a 360°rotating long nozzle which is why it works so precisely.
Furthermore, the powerful battery is another plus point. No need to charge it daily, once fully charged in just 4 hours, it can last up to 20 days. This up-to-date lithium battery comes with a USB cable and an adapter.
This compact and effective device is suitable for travel also as it comes with a storage bag and extra tips box.
This product works perfectly for braces, implants, bridges, crowns, or periodontal pockets.
This rechargeable Nicefeel’s water flosser could be charged by a power bank or a USB .
In short, it is a great product at a very reasonable price but still, a few customers may experience a little leakage in the reservoir which however is very rare.
Nicwell IPX7 Waterproof
This Nicwell water flosser has upgraded its pulse frequency. Now it is 1400 to 1800 times/minute with a water pressure of 30 to 110 PSI which is good enough to remove any leftover food in between the teeth and helps in maintaining good oral hygiene.
There are different pressure settings according to one’s requirement. If a person just wants to clean his teeth then there is CLEAN(setting) with 1800 times/min strong pressure, for sensitive teeth SOFT (setting) is recommended which is 1400 times/minute, then there is MASSAGE (setting) which cleanses the teeth and massages the gums.
This product is travel-friendly as it is light-weight and cordless but the size is not very small and is not foldable. The tank can hold up to 200 ml of water which is quite enough.
One more plus point is its powerful lithium battery which once charged fully can last up to 21 days. The detachable open tank makes it easier to clean the inside of the tank.
We liked the product as it is very affordable and easy to use. The only concern is about its design which does not allow to fill in water except in an upright position. Other than that it is worth every penny.
2 More you may want to look at:
H2o floss Countertop Oral Irrigator is there. It is silent device that comes with twelve different flosser tips. More people can use it because of that.
There is also a special tongue and nasal cleaner in there as well.
But unlike so many others that we saw, this thing wont leak. But it can still very easily break.
Similarly Panasonic portable dental flosser is also a good device.
This model is light in weight and portable as well thus making it easy for traveling purposes. This cordless water flosser is dishwasher friendly. The collapsible design makes it easy for you to carry this dental flosser in your suitcase. This rechargeable device needs simple 2 AA batteries. The model is waterproof however while washing the batteries must be removed.
The model comes with a single flosser tip, however, more can be purchased upon desire.
The two pressure system has a high-speed and a slower one for sensitive gums or children. The only problem with it is that the water runs out quickly.
After studying the top-standing models, we have concluded that all these classy models, will require you to make slight compromises with certain things.
eg as with the first one in the list eg Waterpik Aquarius Flosser, you might need to get another one after just 4 months. it’s not a sure thing but as we mentioned 3 out of 10 people from our team experienced that, but other than this flaw rest all about this product was fantastic.
similarly, with some, you would need to compromise with the build quality with others you might have to compromise with the battery life, etc.
but, for the usage or the quality of results, all these products are worth purchase.
your purchase will depend on which compromise you can make because we have observed that no matter how good a flosser might be still cons will chase its way.
as for our verdict, we will prefer any flosser that is travel-friendly, has quality result, and has a large water reservoir. with these qualities, we can compromise on the life of the product or any other feature.
