Flossing is undeniably an important activity when it comes to oral health.
Here at Electric Teeth we therefore aim to test the various products that can make flossing simpler and easier.
As time goes on, we’ll be testing as many different products as possible so that we can offer the best advice on which ones you should buy.
Below we’ve included links to the water flosser reviews that we’ve completed so far, plus links to some of the disposable flossing accessories that we’ve reviewed.
Editor’s note: Water Flossers , dental water jets, electric flossers and oral irrigators are essentially the same thing. Technically speaking, the various products may work slightly differently to one another, but they have the same goal: to dislodge plaque and food from between the teeth and around the gum area using pressurised water.
Philips Sonicare AirFloss
The AirFloss is the water flosser offering from Philips Sonicare.
Currently there are 2 main models available, the AirFloss (view on Amazon) and the AirFloss Pro (view on Amazon). There are also different colour variations of each model. We explain and list the differences in our Sonicare AirFloss Review.
We were really impressed by the AirFloss, so much so that we gave it a 5/5 rating.
Over the space of several years it works out at approximately the same cost as buying disposable flossers, and the added convenience alone makes it worth strong consideration.
Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser
Waterpik is one of the leading names in the water flosser space.
While they do manufacture electric toothbrushes as well, their main focus is water flossers and therefore they have an extensive range compared to others.
We weren't quite as impressed with the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser (view on Amazon) as we were the Philips AirFloss, but it's still worth considering if you have sensitive gums or other gum conditions and don't get on well with traditional tape floss.

Disposable Flossing Accessories
Oral-B Glide Floss Picks
Available generally in packs of 30 these are not the cheapest flossing solution. Whilst prices vary, at the time of writing, a pack of 30 on their own cost £4.99 which works out at 16.6p per floss pick.
With some clever purchasing decisions you can essentially bulk buy and we were able to get 6 packs of 30 picks for £23.99 from Amazon. With purchasing 180 picks, the unit cost drops 13.3p which is considerably cheaper.
