The Nicefeel water flosser includes the best things of two worlds, compared to other devices in our review and will be great for daily use.

First of all, the unit features two modes (pulse and floss) that make it a great combination device in terms of being the best bang for your buck. Additionally, the device features dual insulation and an IPX7 waterproof rating of the flosser, which is surprising to see as a feature in a budget-friendly model.

With a capacious 1400 mAh lithium battery, the device can operate for several days straight without the need to recharge. The charging process takes around 3-4 hours on average using the supplied charging cable and adapter. Likewise, the indicator lights on the side of the appliance will show the current charge level so you will always know when it is time to charge the flosser.

What is more, the flosser is equipped with a sizeable 300 ml water tank, which allows for up to 2 minutes of uninterrupted flossing. This feature makes the flosser ideal not only for occasional flossing but for day-to-day use as well.

Philips Sonicare AirFloss

Take Full Advantage of Water Flossing

Flossing teeth with warm water is a good way to keep your teeth and gums healthy. However, it can get even better if you add a mouthwash to your morning routine. Flossing with a mouthwash provides a few great benefits, with the most remarkable one being its ability to reduce inflammations and help gum and teeth diseases. But to achieve the best results, it's recommended to use a mouthwash together with a water flosser.

If you do not have a water flosser yet, we recommend you to consider the Philips Sonicare AirFloss Rechargeable Power Flosser.

The strength of this flosser is that it allows you to easily target the needed area of your mouth due to its guidance tip and angled head. On top of that, it effectively removes food debris and cleans between teeth to prevent the appearance of plaque and the development of odontolith. This has become possible thanks to the power of microburst technology consisting of hundreds of microdroplets that penetrate deep between teeth to thoroughly flush out all food remains.

So, if you want to keep your teeth and gums healthy, cast off your doubts! With the Philips Sonicare AirFloss Rechargeable Power Flosser, you'll be able to take full advantage of water flossing.

Panasonic EW1211W Dental Care

Power of Two Natural Elements

The feature that differs the Panasonic EW1211W oral irrigator from some other models is that it takes advantage of two natural elements: while one of the pulps of the device generates water flow, the other one saturates it with oxygen. Additionally, it features three cleaning modes which allow it to meet the needs of different users. The first mode is used to remove plaque, bacteria, and food remains. The second one, which combines the mixture of water and air, allows massaging gums, which is important for improving blood circulation, and helps prevent gingivitis. And the third one is aimed at users with sensitive gums. It combines water with air as well, but unlike the second mode, it works on the gums more gently. Switching between the modes is done by using control buttons on the handle of the device. It's also worth mentioning that the Panasonic EW1211W has a waterproof design enabling you to use it in the shower and cleaning it under water without having to worry about damaging it. All this makes it a valuable purchase for anyone who takes their dental health seriously.

An Ideal Family Option

What Is a Water Flosser?

Water flossing is an important part of oral hygiene that has many benefits, so it's not surprising that dentists all over the world advise making it part of a regular routine. Flossing using water doesn't take up a lot of time yet allows for removing up to 99.99% plague and food debris that might've got stuck deep in the pocket of the gums. However, the biggest benefit is that it significantly reduces the chances of ever getting periodontal or any other dental disease. Plus, it almost excludes inflammations of the gums if done regularly. So, if you are a person that takes care of yourself and wants to have great dental health, a water flosser is a must on top of regular flossing.

A water flosser is a simple-to-use device that like electric toothbrushes can be corded and cordless. Usually, it consists of the main unit with a motor, water reservoir and a tip. Some flossers offer several replaceable tips so that they could be used by the whole family. Flossers work by spraying water along the teeth and gums to remove the food stuck in the pocket of the gums. They don't replace toothbrushes or string flosses and should be used additionally to complete oral care. What is nice about flossing is that it is quick and requires only very little manual work, which makes it quite enjoyable.

What Features to Compare

Types

Firstly, you need to decide in what way you are going to use your water flosser. There are two types of flossers 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, they can be a great device for you.

Cleaning Technology

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 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 are saturated with the oxygen, and the water flow directed in the oral cavity is more effective while killing pathogenic micro flora.

Construction Peculiarities

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.

Additional Functions

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