Best water flosser – up your oral health game with these 4 excellent devices

Published by Finn Hayden

Dental hygiene is so important, yet so often overlooked. Many of us will neglect our dental hygiene until it's too late and becomes an expensive and stressful issue.

One thing that your dentist will often tell you to do to maintain dental hygiene is to floss more. But although flossing seems like a pretty straightforward thing to do, it can actually be really fiddly and far from simple. We usually find that the floss is too slippy to grip properly, and we'll often accidentally cut our gums by flossing too hard.


This is why water flossers are so great - you can get all the benefits of flossing without any of the fiddling around. We wanted to round up the best water flossers that you can buy in the UK as of 2023, let's get into it:

Waterpik Cordless Advanced

Waterpik has emerged as one of the leading brands in the water flosser space, and we're not surprised by this at all - not only is the technology cutting-edge, but it's also available to buy at a very good price. There are currently a few different types of water flossers that you can buy from Waterpik, but the Cordless Advanced variety is the best that we've tried. This water flosser has 3 different pressure settings so you can find a pressure which feels comfortable, and it also has a 45 second water capacity and a flow rate of 300ml per minute of use. It's really quiet to use which means even if you're the first one up or the last one to bed, you can use this water flosser without waking everyone else up in the house. And it only takes 4 hours to fully charge this device, and you can fill it up from the tap very easily. We're very impressed with this product, and we're not surprised to see that Waterpik is sitting with an 'Excellent' rating on Trustpilot. Learn more and buy it here -

Philips Sonicare Power Flosser 3000

Philips is a big brand in the dental hygiene space, with an impressive range of electric toothbrushes. So we're not surprised to see that the brand has launched a water flosser, and we're not surprised to see that it's a great product. The Sonicare Power Flosser 3000 has an X-shaped tip which separates the water flow into 4 jets, meaning that the flosser covers more surface area and provides a deep clean. You can choose from 2 different flossing modes - one which is more consistent for general flossing, and one which uses pulsing to provide a more intense flossing for a deeper clean. This product currently has a 4.3 out of 5 rating on the Philips website, and 87% of the people who have used this product would recommend it. Learn more and buy it here -

Concho water flosser

We really enjoy using this water flosser from Concho - it has 8 different settings, including a low, medium, and high setting. These settings allow you to change the water pressure from 20psi all the way up to 120psi. It's really comfortable to use and once charged it lasts for days. It also has 6 different jet tips which get the water into all the areas of your teeth. We really think this is a great water flosser and it seems that others agree as the product has a rating of 4.2 out of 5 from more than 100 reviews on Amazon. Learn more and buy it here -

Waterpik Cordless Plus

The basic water flosser from Waterpik might not have as many features as the advanced model, but it's still an excellent flosser. And at less than £60, it's also very affordable. You also still have the same flow rate of 300ml per minute, and the same reservoir capacity of 45 seconds. Instead of 3 pressure settings like with the advanced model, you have 2 to choose from - low and high. Although this is the basic model of the Waterpik water flosser, we still think it's an excellent product and will be fine for most people who just want an effective water flosser for everyday use at home (this product is a little larger than the advanced equivalent).

Hangsun water flosser

The highest-rated water flosser that we could find on Amazon was from a brand called Hangsun, which isn't actually a brand that we're too familiar with. But there is no denying the popularity of this product - it's listed as 'Amazon's Choice' and it has a rating of 4.3 out of 5 from more than 9000 reviews. It's definitely an impressive product, as it has 3 different settings which is more than some of the really expensive models had. You can choose from Normal, Soft, and Pulse depending on what type of clean you want. This is actually the cheapest water flosser that we could find too, at less than £25 to buy via Amazon.
