Waterpik WP-563UK

Obliterates Tartar and Plaque

The Waterpik WP-563UK relies on its outstanding performance and sheer power to improve your oral health. The biggest selling point of this product is easily its highest pressure mode. Delivering about 1250 water pulses per minute, the model doesn't leave tartar a chance. It removes plaque as well as any other water flosser. The instrument extracts and clears away all of the debris stuck around your teeth and the gumline. Its power allows the device to rid your mouth of bacteria and food particles better than just about any other model.

But, of course, if you have sensitive gums and you simply cannot afford to utilise the highest pressure mode, the model has you covered with soft and pulse modes.

As it is always the case with these flossers, the soft mode will allow you to improve your oral hygiene without putting too much of a stress on your teeth and gums. And the pulse mode can be used to massage the latter. By stimulating gum tissue, the instrument in question provides an extra layer of health benefits that you simply wouldn't get from any other oral care device.

It doesn't necessarily concern the powerful performance of this cordless water flosser directly but one downside of this product is that the power button is a tad too sensitive. It's not the end of the world but there's a good chance you will accidentally turn off the device from time to time, a mildly annoying issue that will hopefully be resolved in the next iteration of this model.

Review of Waterpik WP-563UK Cordless Advanced Water Flosser

Keep It Organised

Since the instrument is also being advertised as a water flosser for braces, the plaque seeker and the orthodontic tips that come with it are an always welcome addition to the overall package. The latter makes it a hell of a lot easier to clean around the braces, while the former is just noticeably better than the classic jet tip at removing plaque from braces and other types of dental implants.

Speaking of the overall package, the manufacturers supply the Waterpik WP-563UK with a tip storage case, in addition to the usual carry bag. Its a really convenient extra accessory as it will help you keep your tips organised and away from bacteria and dust.

Aside from that, we also liked the sleek charger. Using the rapid inductive charging technology, it magnetically connects to the unit and takes no more than 4 hours to get the battery back to 100%.

In short, you could definitely make an argument that the Waterpik WP-563UK is the best cordless water flosser for braces. At the very least, it is certainly one of the better flossers for people whose gums and teeth aren't particularly sensitive. It isn't the most sparing instrument but it will improve your oral health like no other device.

Panasonic EW1211W Dental Care

Ideal for Travelling

The Panasonic Dental Care Rechargeable Oral Irrigator combines portable design and efficient flossing performance. It is relatively smaller than many other appliances, but it is still functional enough to provide you with a decent dental care on the go (see what other flossing alternatives exist).

To begin with, the device is fitted with 2 standard tips. The nozzle rotates when in use, providing you with gentle yet effective cleaning. This water flosser comes complete with a recharge indicator and a charging base, which can also be wall-mounted if you are not planning to take it with you. The working time after one full charge is about 15 minutes, which makes this device perfect for taking on the road with you.

The water tank capacity of this oral irrigator is not that big, though. You can fill it with only 130 ml of water, which gives you about 35 seconds of continuous work. Some users point out that they have to refill it a few times during one session. However, as we mentioned before, this flosser is very portable, hence this slight inconvenience is only caused by the small size of the device.

Review of Panasonic EW1211W Dental Care Rechargeable Oral Irrigator

The Power of Two Natural Elements

What makes the Panasonic EW1211W oral irrigator special is its technology which combines two natural elements – water and air. Besides such unusual technology, this model possesses three modes to meet the needs of every user. The first one is a common water floss which works best for removing plaque, bacteria, and food particles. The second mode is a water floss with air, which not only cleans your teeth but also massages gums to improve blood circulation and maintain good gingival health. The last mode is similar to the second one, however, it works gentler on gums. That’s why it is best used by children and people with sensitive gums.

The pulse frequency is about 1500 times per minute, which makes it a decent rival to professional flossers, used in dentists' offices. Do note that it’s easy to choose the necessary mode since all control buttons are on the handle. Added to the convenience of use is the irrigator’s waterproof body that lets you use it when taking a shower. This very feature will be highly appreciated by those who don’t like to spend a lot of time on routine actions every morning.

In conclusion, the Panasonic oral irrigator won’t leave you without dental care while travelling. The device is compact, functional, and effective. We are sure that this oral irrigator will live up to all your expectations and become a great alternative to more expensive electric flossers.

Morpilot 200ML 4 nozzles

Travel Companion

Every water flosser on our list falls under the portable category. That said, this Morpilot model still manages to stand out in that regard. It's just a far more convenient device than the majority of similar options and there's a lot that contributes to that convenience.

First things first, the model comes equipped with a UK plug adaptor, so you won't have any issues charging the instrument anywhere around the mainland and the majority of its surrounding isles. But it is a portable device after all, so you won't have an access to the right type of socket.

Fortunately, the model has you covered on that front either. In addition to the usual AC plug adaptor, you also get a USB charging cable, so you can plug the flosser into your laptop, a power bank, or an array of different electronics and charged it from them.

Another part of the package is a travel bag, a nice little container that will help you transport the flosser and keep it safe on the road.

The model does not trail behind when it comes to the battery life. Charge it via USB or the old way, you'll still get up to 2 weeks of everyday use from that single charge. It weighs less than a pound and a small frame allows the flosser to fit nicely in your hand, turning the mundane morning routine into something a bit less tiresome and annoying.

Review of Morpilot 200ML 4 nozzles Water Flosser for Teeth, Braces, Implants

Simple Maintenance

There isn't much to cover here on the performance front. You get the usual 3 flossing modes. The soft one will be great for some of the more sensitive gums, the normal one will provide a more thorough clean, and the pulse mode will stimulate your gums by massaging them with a nice pulsing stream. Some customers remark that the normal mode feels a tad underwhelming compared to similar models but we can't say if you personally will be able to notice much of a difference.

One thing that is definitely worth some attention is the fully-open design of the water tank. It may not sound like much but, with it, it is noticeably easier to clean the limescale and bacteria that settles inside the tank. Plus, you can fill it two different ways. You can take the whole thing off and pour the way the usual way. Or, you can remove the protective side cap and fill the tank without removing it from the flosser.

To sum it up, the Morpilot water flosser for braces will prove to be a great travel companion. It is much more convenient than the majority of similar flossers and a bit more practical than most of its competition. Plus, the water tank is large enough to ensure almost a minute of continuous oral hygiene.

Philips Sonicare AirFloss

Enjoyable and Effective Flossing

The Philips SoniCare devices are famous for their effective teeth care. If you need a powerful appliance to keep company to your Sonicare toothbrush, you should buy this flosser from the same brand. This device will be a huge help in places where the toothbrush can’t cope. Not only will it improve the condition of your oral cavity, it will also be a great deal since the device is compatible with all standard Sonicare chargers.

To make your dental care routine easier, the Philips irrigator is complete with a simple and easy to grip body. The control button is comfortably placed on the handle so you're just a single push away from starting your flossing.

For even more convenience, the slim head is slightly angled, thus it is able to clean hard-to-get places quickly and efficiently. It will take you around one minute to clean your whole mouth. This flosser comes with one standard tip and one bonus nozzle.

We wish that this appliance had a slightly higher water tank capacity since it can fit only 10 ml of water and requires a few refills during the use. However, we would call it a con, but not a deal breaker, because the device is still effective in use.

Benefits of Oral Irrigation

Oral irrigation with warm water is a good way to maintain the health of teeth and gums. However, you can make this procedure even more effective by using a mouthwash which benefits your oral health in the following way:

- It speeds up the healing of tiny injuries caused by a toothbrush.

- It boasts anti-inflammatory and anti-cavity qualities.

- Regular use of mouthwash can prevent the appearance of oral diseases.

You can use mouthwash together with an oral irrigator, and one of the most suitable models is the Philips Sonicare AirFloss Rechargeable Power Flosser. Due to the guidance tip and angled head, it is possible to direct water flow to the needed area for better and more effective treatment. The flosser also effectively cleans between teeth preventing plaque and odontolith development. It is possible due to the microburst technology! The quick burst of airflow pressure consisting of microdroplets penetrates deeply between teeth, thus providing good dental hygiene.

In short, if you want your teeth and gums to be healthy, it’s time to leave your doubts behind and buy the Philips oral irrigator. It will make the overall condition of your oral cavity much better, and the process of flossing easier and more enjoyable.

BROADCARE Ultra Fine Water Flow

Designed for Regular Use

What you'll see right away is that this flossing device is rather compact, so you'll be able to easily travel with it wherever you need. However, despite its small dimensions, the Broadcare water flosser produces a very powerful jet of water which allows effective cleaning of even small amounts of food that may have been left in your mouth.

Typical of other flossing devices, this one works in three modes - normal, soft, and pulse - so you have the option to choose how strong you want the flossing to be. To make the use even more convenient, the device comes with a memory function, which retains the last flossing mode.

As the Broadcare irrigator is designed for use by two people, it comes with 2 standard tips. The tips are quite tough so you may expect to see your gums bleed a little at first, however, this should soon go away as you start flossing your teeth on a daily basis.

The Broadcare flosser comes with a detachable water reservoir with a 150-ml capacity which, while not the biggest, is more than enough for thorough flossing without refills. The only disadvantage some users notice is that the water level can be hard to see, however, it shouldn’t be a big deal since you can actually feel when the water is gone.

Review of BROADCARE Ultra Fine Water Flow Water Flosser

Power-Saving and Quiet

The Broadcare Water Flosser is fitted with a built-in filtration system, allowing you to use tap water and make the flossing process hassle-free. The waterproof body of the flosser adds to the safety of the device, so you can keep it on the sink right next to the tap or even use it in the shower.

The rechargeable battery and LED indicator further contribute to the convenience of use, not only providing you with enough time to floss the entire mouth but also informing you about battery discharge in advance. This model also features a 2-minute auto-timer function. It will help you control the time of the procedure and save the battery.

The device is also very quiet. With the noise level lower than 75 dB, this flosser will allow you to take care of your teeth any time during a day without worries of disturbing your family.

No matter how you look at it, the price of this device is much lower compared to the high-end professional tools. Hence, the Broadcare oral irrigator can be a nice alternative, especially so if you aren't particularly interested in stationary models. With the Broadcare flossing device, you can take care of your teeth at home, at school, on a business trip, and elsewhere. Get this and keep your teeth healthy on a budget.

What Is a Water Flosser?

People, taking care of the health of their teeth, often contemplate an idea of buying a water flosser, a special device designed for cleaning oral cavity and removing particles of food with high pressure of water. Here are the reasons why you shouldn’t postpone this decision and go order it already today. Water flossers are irreplaceable for people, wearing braces, implants or crowns. Water flossers are also a must for those whose gum sensitivity is very high. Unlike regular toothbrushes, they do not trigger bleeding and ensure that cleaning is done in a gentle way. As you can see, water flossers aren’t just a useless novelty. For some people, this is the only way to take care of their oral hygiene. For this review, we’ve decided to pick cordless flossers. The beauty about cordless water flossers is that they can be taken along on trips. As opposed to corded models, battery-powered flossers do not need to be charged and hence, don’t put you at a risk of not finding an outlet for it while being abroad. Besides, as a rule, all cordless models are waterproof and totally safe for use in the shower and bath.

Water flossing, however, by no means is a substitute for brushing. Therefore, make sure to include a good toothbrush in your regular dental routine.

Best Cordless Water Flossers 2017

What Features to Compare

Firstly, you need to decide in what way you are going to use your oral irrigator. There are two Types of irrigators to choose from: stationary and portable. For home use, you should better buy a stationary one. This type has a fairly compact size so that it can be easily put instead of the soap dish. If you travel a lot, look for portable irrigators. These models are suitable for use in the baths where there is no outlet. Despite their shorter lifetime and small capacity, yet they can be a great device for you.

The next thing to consider is Cleaning Technology which is determined by the characteristics of the water pressure. The irrigators that work by means of the constant water flow supply are known to be effective yet a bit outdated. They are often replaced by the devices that perform pulsating cleaning. Pulsation of the water jet is usually short, almost imperceptible, but effective when it comes to cleaning the plaque. The other technology used here and there in irrigator production is the micro-droplet technology. Thanks to this technology, the water in the tank is saturated with the oxygen, and the water flow directed in the oral cavity is more effective while killing pathogenic microflora.

Construction peculiarities include cleaning velocity modes, a volume of the tank for the liquid, a number and types of tips. The ability to control the water jet pressure is implemented in all irrigators and is very important. The presence of interchangeable tips will be a huge advantage. Some models are equipped only with a standard tip, others have additional. The capacity of the liquid tanks is different in various types of irrigators. Portable irrigators have a smaller volume. Also, you can find water flossers without a tank that should be connected directly to the faucet and come into force by the pressure of water at the tap.

Many irrigators can be equipped with Additional Functions. For example, rotating tips, a timer, a directing tip for a proper water pressure, the possibility of adjusting the water pressure level and some other characteristics. These features can make irrigators more effective and useful.

Did you know?

Nowadays the market is full of toothbrushes, flossers, irrigators, and their electric analogues for your oral cavity. Needless to say that flossing is as an important part of your everyday dental care routine as brushing your teeth. However, some people try to avoid it. Why is that so?

For some people, taking a piece of string, wrapping it around the finger, and putting it between the teeth may seem like quite a process. Thankfully, with the help of electric and cordless flossers, this won’t be such a problem anymore. That’s why we would like to share some facts on maintaining oral hygiene.

Why is it so important?

The plaque and bacteria can build up in the hard-to-reach places between your teeth which increases the risk of different diseases (dental caries, gingivitis, etc). This may cause the destruction of the tooth, gum bleeding, and a number of other unpleasant sensations. The bigger the number of bacteria in your oral cavity, the more vulnerable your teeth and gums become. Visiting the doctor and getting a professional cleaning is, of course, important. However, brushing your teeth and flossing at home every day are essential steps that help to keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy.

How to floss teeth properly

Brushing teeth and flossing seem like such common and familiar everyday things to do that some just do not pay attention to do it properly. When brushing teeth, no matter if you’re using a manual or an electric toothbrush, try to remove as much plaque as possible. The ideal time for the procedure is about two minutes. You should brush equally thoroughly on the outside and the inside of your teeth, and the top as well.

Remember not to push too hard to avoid gum bleeding. Don’t forget to repeat the process every morning and evening. And don’t forget to clean the tongue as it tends to have a lot of bacteria on it as well.

When flossing, use only waxed thread, so it won't get stuck between your teeth. With it, you will be able to remove the particles of food between your teeth. You should be gentle with the flossing as well in order not to irritate or cut the gums. If you use an electric device, it can spare you of even more plaque and get rid of tartar, and it won’t take you longer than a couple of minutes. It is best to floss in the evening before bedtime.

It is also important to monitor your eating habits since drinking too much tea or coffee can adversely affect your dental health. Try to avoid too much sugar as well as it feeds the bacteria in your oral cavity. Remember that vegetables and fresh fruits will do wonders for your teeth, providing you with the necessary amount of useful substances and making your teeth healthy and white.

So, keeping your teeth healthy is as essential as any other part of your body. Try to always remember to keep them in good condition.
