|ideal for people with braces, not very expensive, easy to use and operate||replacing the tips is an ongoing expense, weak tips, not that powerful because it runs on AAA batteries||it's not that powerful, but it's portable and easy to pack|
|comes with a sonic toothbrush, easy to use||can be messy to use, can develop molds, not that powerful after a few months,|
|makes flossing easy, non-flossers can be convinced to floss everyday because of this||does not get to areas in the back of the mouth, not as strong enough to clean in between teeth,||great for cleaning between teeth but doesn't take the place of floss for reaching under the gumline|
Bottomline – Not Top-Rated
Surprisingly, ALL these cordless water flossers from Waterpik (WP-360W, WP-440, FLW-110, and FLW-220) were given a low rating by consumers who tried and tested these products. Compared to their Waterpik countertop counterparts, this score is not impressive.
Should you get one? Based on the ratings and not-so-good feedback, we say consider other brands of cordless water flossers first such as the 2nd Generation – Oral Irrigator by ToiletTree Products and the Panasonic Oral Irrigator EW-DJ10-A.
