Waterpik Waterflosser for Kids Review

Flossing properly is not an easy task for children. The Waterpik Water Flosser for Kids (WP-260) is an easy, more pleasant and more effective way for children to floss. The Waterpik water flosser for kids is a model specially customized for ages over 6 years old and up to 12. It has a compact and simple design that makes the water flossing procedure easy. It’s perfect for kids who wear braces or are unwilling to floss.

Waterpik water flossers are the oldest in the industry and are clinically proven to be much more effective than plain dental floss in plaque film reduction and prevention of gingivitis and gum disease. When used on a daily basis together with brushing, the Waterpik Waterflosser for Kids has been proven to be five times more effective than only toothbrushing and three times more effective than regular dental floss in cleaning around braces. It was also found to be 80% more effective than air flossing. Laboratory tests have shown that it can remove up to 99.9% of plaque from areas treated for as little as three seconds. Its advantage over traditional dental care practices is due to the fact that it can remove bacteria between adjacent teeth and below the gum line, where other means are unable to reach. It also offers a stimulating gum massage, improving blood circulation to toughen the tissue.

Its newly designed electrical feature is kid-proof, making it extra safe for use by children. It has easy to use controls on the handle, both an on/off button, as well as the pressure control system. The pressure control system has 3 settings varying from 10 to 80 psi.

It includes 2 unique tips:

  1. The Classic Jet Tip, and
  2. The Orthodontic Tip

Studies have shown that daily irrigation using the orthodontic tip around braces is significantly more efficient than other interdental cleaning techniques or brushing alone. The classic jet tip is used for general cleaning. Both come with a 2-year warranty.

The unit is much more compact than previous designs, taking up less space on the countertop. The pump is also much quieter. It has a reservoir capacity of minimum 60 seconds of continuous irrigation. The reservoir is invertible so it can be used as a cover, in order to hygienically store the device. Alternatively to water, mouthwash can be used instead to water floss with this unit. It comes with 20 removable stickers making it very attractive to children. They can be used to personalize the unit in a fun way that engages children in using it regularly.

There are over 145 customer reviews on this product in Amazon and it has an incredible 4.5 feedback score.

Most parents are satisfied with the product, as it is much more appealing to their children than dental floss. Some adults have purchased the item for themselves and say it works for them as well as the adult versions that Waterpik produces. They report however, that the lack of a reservoir lid is an unnecessary omission. On the other hand, some believe that the adult version is a better investment in the long run. Overall, this Waterpik water flosser for kids seems to be appropriate for its target group and is highly recommended as a way to get your children flossing regularly.

Waterpik Waterflosser Cordless PLUS Review

More efficient and easier than dental floss, the Waterpik Waterflosser Cordless PLUS removes bacteria, plaque film and food debris between teeth and below the gum line. It has a dual water pressure control system that offers a pressure range from gentle to deep cleaning. It also has four specialized tips (similar to it’s big brother, the Waterpik Ultra). The cordless design provides convenience and flexibility.

The Waterpik Cordless Plus is a product of WaterPik, Inc., which since 1962 has been developing and manufacturing domestic oral health care merchandise. The company has gained worldwide recognition over the years among dental professionals.

The Waterpik Cordless Plus Water Flosser claims to remove up to 99.9% of plaque from below the gum line and between the teeth, much more easily and efficiently than dental floss, when used correctly. It is highly recommended for all kinds of dental work, for individuals with:

  • crowns,
  • bridges,
  • implants,
  • braces, and more.

Waterpik is suggested to be used daily for at least a minute to effectively clean the treated areas, massage the gums and improve oral health overall. Results of a clinical study involving orthodontic patients revealed that Waterpik Cordless Plus is three times more successful in removing plaque and food residue than dental flossing and twice as successful in improving gum health in subjects wearing braces.

The dual water pressure control feature embedded in the device, allows controlling the pressure intensity depending on your personal preference. Depending on your needs you can choose a gentle or a forceful water pressure and everything in between. The appliance pushes the water outwards in a pulsating manner in order to stimulate and massage the gums, getting rid of plaque from areas that even regular flossing can’t reach.

In addition, the four specialized tips ensure thorough cleaning of the entire mouth. The tips are:

  1. Plaque Seeker Tip,
  2. Orthodontic Tip,
  3. Classic Jet Tip, and
  4. Tongue Cleaner.

The Plaque Seeker Tip is a unique tip designed to eliminate plaque around dental work such as implants, crowns, bridges and other hard to reach places. The Classic Jet Tip gets the pulsating water below the gum line to improve the health of the gums. The Orthodontic Tip is ideal for the ones wearing braces as it was found to be probably the most competent plaque cleaner around braces. Finally, the Tongue Cleaner helps freshen your breath by removing bacteria that can accumulate on the tongue’s surface.

Another useful feature of this Waterpik is its cordless design that enables mobility. There are no extra costs involved and no need to replace the batteries. The built-in batteries are rechargeable. By using the enclosed charger between uses, you ensure that you never run out of power. As a result, this water flosser is much smaller than regular Waterpik units, thus taking much less space on the countertop (and ideal for travel). It comes with a two-year-warranty.

The cordless Waterpik has over 1,000 reviews on Amazon, so it is one of the most popular models, and has a modest 3.6 star out of 5 rating (I say modest because the regular Waterpik Plus Water Flosser has an incredibly high rating).

Be aware that there have been some issues with the power supply, causing a few units to stop working properly before too long. This means you may need to expect to be in touch with Waterpik and potentially make use of the warranty we spoke about earlier.

The majority of users, find it more effective and much more pleasant than flossing using a dental floss (no more bleeding gums!). Most recommend it as a travel unit rather than for everyday use.

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser Review

The Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser is our former top pick for the #1 best water flosser. It really is hard to go wrong with this unit. (The only reason we’ve changed our minds it because Waterpik has UPDATED it and made it into the amazingly high quality, #1 best selling Aquariussee our review here!)

We were shocked to see the nearly 5,000 reviews on Amazon from users of the Waterpik, and even more surprised to see that even with all of those people, it still has a very high 4.4 out of 5 star rating. We have found that Amazon ratings are a very good way to measure the quality of a product, and over 3,000 perfect ratings simply can’t be wrong!

So, other than being one of the top, best selling flosser you can buy, it is the only one that can legitimately claim to be 50% more effective at improving gum health than plain old dental floss. They have commissioned studies to be able to make that claim, and you can tell after using the unit just how good it is, because you’ll come away with a totally refreshed feeling in your mouth that brushing, flossing, and even mouthwash can’t deliver.

We liked that this comes with 6 different tips, which are all able to store easily on top of the water reservoir in a small lid compartment. They’re kept out of the way, but easy to access for whatever you need.

The tips included in this package are:

  • Classic Jet Tip (x2) – Great for general use, will work for most people’s needs
  • Toothbrush Tip – General use, convenient for brushing and flossing simultaneously
  • Plaque Seeker Tip – For harder to reach places, great for implants, bridges, and crowns
  • Orthodontic Tip – Good for general use, but specializes in getting rid of plaque around braces
  • Pik Pocket Tip – Specialized for periodontal pockets and furcations, gets deep below gum line

For maximum versatility, not only do you get a wide array of different tips, but the Waterpik Ultra also has 10 pressure settings, so no matter who you are or what your needs are, you should be able to find a set up that works for you. This is one of the best units there is when it comes to versatility and we are big fans of products that allow for quality use by the most amount of people. There’s more of a chance this will work for you, plus it’s great for households that have multiple people using the unit, all who have differing needs.

We really liked the fact that it has an easy to use pause button that allows you to stop the flow of water when you press it. This is good for not making a mess if you need to remove it from your mouth, or if you are changing from top teeth to bottom teeth. Solves that problem of extra water getting everywhere.

Another great feature is the nozzle swivel. Unlike other units where you have to move your hand and arm around to get in all the different places, with this Waterpik, you simply turn the nozzle head with your fingers on an easily-maneuverable swivel. It’s much easier to use than some models and it’s just nice to have something that should be a common sense addition to any unit.

The Ultra wins on all levels and as a water flosser in general, it really was the best until it was improved upon even more! We, along with most of its users, highly recommend it as your choice for oral irrigator. Top level, you simply will not find many better units than this to meet your needs and the needs of your family. The three year warranty should help, too.

The Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser is one of our top choices, and we hope you check it out for yourself.
