About this deal

One thing we didn’t like about the charging process is that there is no clear signal that the battery is charging. No sound, no flashing light to let you know charging has started or finished. The Waterpik Complete Care 9.0 and 9.5 feature a separate water flosser and sonic toothbrush in a neat countertop unit. The difference between the two is that the 9.0 has a classically shaped toothbrush head (like a Philips Sonicare) and the 9.5 has a round oscillating head (like an Oral-B electric toothbrush). Both are available in white only. However, that's really where the benefits end because you're getting less pressure (80 PSI) than other models, only three power settings, and two tips included. It looks and feels quite cheap and dated compared to their others. If you want a compact flosser, it might make more sense to buy a cordless one with similar settings and a lower price, like this one from TUREWELL. Waterpik and toothbrush combos

Lightweight, cordless and easy to use, the Waterpik Cordless Plus Water Flosser makes it easy to maintain healthier gums. It is a great solution for those who prefer the convenience of a cordless Water Flosser. We asked Dr Praveen Sharma, a scientific advisor to the British Dental Association and specialist in restorative dentistry if dentists advise using a water flosser for teeth. He says: 'As a dentist, the preference would be for mechanical cleaning in between teeth with interdental brushes, where the anatomy allows.As far as the clean goes, we were more than happy with the results. The only people who will be dissatisfied are those of you who use a counter-top model on the highest pressure setting. Mineral deposits in water can reduce the effectiveness of your water flosser over time, particularly if you live in a hard-water area. We also noticed that hard water would leave deposits on the inside of the reservoir. Fortunately these were easy enough to clean remove with a warm water and vinegar solution. Classic Jet Tip– The most commonly used Waterpik flosser head. A stream of water flows through the tip and blasts away plaque from between the teeth and along the gum line. Waterpik has included two Jet Tips in the box of the Cordless Plus.

While the Waterpik unit is easy to wrap your fingers around, it feels quite bulky, especially with a full water reservoir.Waterpik is the only brand clinically proven to be more effective than traditional dental floss or air floss for reducing plaque and gingivitis. And the Orthodontic Tip combined with the Water Flosser is clinically proven to be up to 3X as effective as dental floss for removing plaque around braces and other orthodontic appliances.

The Waterpik Cordless Plus is not waterproof, so you can't use it in the shower. It also doesn't come with any extras like a travel bag. All in all, this is a decent basic model and the different tips are handy if you have gum problems or wear braces. But if you're switching from a different brand you might be disappointed at the level of power.

Will you be claiming the VAT back?

Countertop: A countertop water flosser has a large reservoir base that holds enough water for repeated uses, which means less frequent re-filling. Countertop models may also be more powerful than a cordless water flosser, and you never have to worry about a low battery. Because of the long charge time you will have to remember to place the Waterpik unit on charge once a week, otherwise you risk it dying on you mid-use. Water flossers can be used in combination with interdental brushes where the gaps in between the teeth allow,' says Dr Sharma. Settings:Water flossers come with various settings, some even having up to 10. This can be very useful, especially if your family will be using it as well.Some just have variable power settings whereas others have pulsing ‘massage' settings. A low setting is especially important if you want to use your Waterpik to remove tonsil stones.

If you have ever used a counter-top Waterpik then you will know just how easy it is to steer and direct the handle. The separate water reservoir and pump makes the handle light and easy to maneuver.

If you are torn between the two I would definitely recommend getting the full size version. The two are not really comparable. Water tank in full size only needs filling once and you can change the pressure from 1 to 10. 5 is enough for me at the moment.”

Pressing the power button saw the Cordless Plus roar into action. The sound is roughly twice as loud as your standard electric toothbrush. If you use this water flosser while people are sleeping you will almost certainly wake them up. Cleaning time We fill up the water reservoir on each flosser and time how long it takes for the tank to drain. There are many interdental aids available in the market to help with your flossing and the newest being the oral irrigation devices. Some interdental aids may not be suitable for people with highly sensitive teeth or advanced gum disease with mobile teeth. Beautiful smiles begin with healthy gums and teeth. So, it is important to ensure that the teeth and gums are maintained in a healthy state by brushing regularly and flossing daily. This helps to remove the plaque/tartar that forms on teeth and keeps the microorganisms at bay.
