Water flosser recommendation?

26
Posted 30th Jan
Been looking for a water flosser for a while, had a look at all the usual brands.. Oral B, Panasonic and Waterpik.

They seem to have a lot of decent reviews but then there also seem to be a lot of reviews saying how they fail after a few months.

Anyone have one they are currently using and would recommend?
Thanks!

I've had both a Philips Airfloss and a Panasonic, and can wholeheartedly tell you to go with the Panny. It's cheaper, takes standard AA batteries (get some decent rechargeables) and fires a constant stream rather than a geriatric splutter like "blast". It's much better.

Tbh I’ve tried the Phillips and you’re better off flossing regularly. It’s no substitute.
I had a Philips airfloss that was pretty decent for about a month but then it died. I looked into getting a replacement or another brand and none of them had very good reviews when it came to longevity so I just went back to regular flossing instead!

I have the Fairywill Water Flosser. Currently £29.99 on Amazon, but if you get the VIPOn app, there's regular discount codes for them. Think I paid less than £10.

It works perfectly fine. Holds enough water, has enough power, constant stream of water and rarely needs charged.
Been using this one twice a day since May , no issues , recharges very quickly with a standard plug , £22.99 on amazon , amazon.co.uk/gp/…c=1
No idea what they are like, but look good

I agree with this^

Durability isn’t great though. I dropped it once from a fairly small distance, and it snapped on the inside, rendering it unusable.
I tried one I got of amazon from a deal at Christmas time and used it (or tried to use it) once. Messy is an understatement, I wasn’t prepared at all for the splash back of water onto the mirror and I looked like I had been caught out in a rain fall once it had finished. There must be a knack to using them but regular flossing it is for me.
Phillips airfloss is amazing

Yep there’s a knack I was the same but now it’s second nature to me. Just don’t look in the mirror.

Definitely takes a little practice but once you have it worked out it’s worth it !
I got a 20 quid one off Amazon to test the waters, so to speak. I still have it 3 years later. Charge lasts about 6 months when using it twice a week.

I've looked at my order and It's not available anymore, but it's identical to this one. amazon.co.uk/iTe…-17


Mine is a MARNUR one, but you find it a lot with things like this, one Chinese company makes a standard one and then 10 other companies with English sounding names put their name on it.

Thanks mate

No probs. I was in the same boat as you and thought I'd try out a cheaper one first to see if I actually bothered with it. Highly recommend it anyway. I might try a more expensive one when it dies, but for £20 I've definitely had my money's worth.

Did you use it with your mouth open?

I know some manuals recommend you can leave your mouth open and let the water just constantly run out, but it's easy enough using with your mouth closed and rinsing out every 10 seconds or so. And you can just feel along your teeth with the head to know where the gaps are as opposed to trying to see them.

Yes I did and was looking into the mirror I will definitely give it another try tonight. Thanks for tip
