About the product
If flossing isn’t a regular part of your oral care routine, you’re not reaching the bacteria that can build up between teeth, causing plaque and bad breath. Cleaning between your teeth has never been easy or enjoyable, but we all know that it should be part of our daily regimen. Philips Sonicare AirFloss Rechargeable Electric Flosser offers an easy, fast routine to help prevent cavities and improve long term gum health between teeth. Advanced technology gently removes plaque between teeth with a rapid burst of air and micro-droplets to deliver a quick 30 second cleaning routine. To use AirFloss, simply fill the reservoir with water or mouthwash, point the guidance tip between your teeth, and activate to clean. The new auto-burst function gives the option to release timed bursts for a quick and easy cleaning routine. AirFloss can be used with water or mouth rinse for the ultimate, fresh experience and it produces less than a teaspoon of liquid per whole mouth clean for less mess. AirFloss removes up to 5x more plaque between teeth than manual brushing alone, and helps improve gum health in as little as 2 weeks. It also helps prevent cavities between teeth. This device is safe and gentle for implants, veneers, and orthodontics. Start using AirFloss today and get excited for your next dentist visit.
Water Pik's Complete Care combines superior Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush technologies in one product and is up to 70% more effective than Sonicare® FlexCare. Now all of your brushing and flossing needs can be accomplished with one convenient device that saves counter space and power outlets. So don't just brush, go complete. The easy and more effective alternative. Clinical research confirms that the Waterpik® Water Flosser is significantly more effective than string floss, Sonicare® Air Floss and Air Floss Pro for removing plaque, reducing gingivitis, and improving gum health.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Philips Sonicare AirFloss (HX8211/03) Rechargeable Electric Flosser
  • Wonderful product, quiet, fast, efficient!
  • t's fast! It's easy to use! It reaches those spaces far back in your mouth.
  • The reservoir is so small that if you need to puff between any of your teeth a second time, you will need to refill it.
  • Convenient to use, but the water reservoir is kind of too small.
  • The tiny reservoir doesn't even hold enough liquid for a single use, which is surprising, because each pulse -- paced at about a second apart -- uses so little water that it's thoroughly ineffective
Waterpik Complete Care (WP-900) Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush
  • The toothbrush is nice, too, with two speeds. I'm very pleased with the entire system.
  • This particular model also comes with a two-speed sonic toothbrush, and that is also great.
  • Has speed features for sensitive gums.
  • Have more than one speed for both sids the brush and the water hose. I highly recommended it.
  • The toothbrush is great, there's two speed settings and it's timed so you know when to switch locations in your mouth to get the 2 mins of brushing time.

What customers say about "Product Dimentions"
Philips Sonicare AirFloss (HX8211/03) Rechargeable Electric Flosser
  • I like this compact flosser.
  • I wanted a compact flosser and this works great for everyday use.
  • It’s compact & unobtrusive
  • Very poor design.
Waterpik Complete Care (WP-900) Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush
  • Great purchase! Would buy again because the toothbrush is sturdy, the water container is exactly the right size, and it is quiet.
  • This is a real spacesaver and both toothbrush and waterpik work very well.
  • simply for saving space on my rather limited-size countertop.
  • The size is fairly compact for the 2 items in one unless you don't have a lot of counter space.

What customers say about "Specifications"
Philips Sonicare AirFloss (HX8211/03) Rechargeable Electric Flosser
  • Gizmo does exactly what it says, sends a burst of high-pressure liquid that cleans quite well.
  • Good, I wish is was more of a constant flow of water but the pulses work too.
  • I do not like the “bursts” of water. I’d rather have a stream. It makes a mess of the mirror even with standing back.
  • It's just a single, extremely small burst of water or mouthwash.
  • Not a lot of liquid is moved with each "pulse" and the reservoir is super small, so I had to refill even before I was done with all my teeth.
Waterpik Complete Care (WP-900) Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush
  • Using the waterpik is easier than flossing and the sonic toothbrush with timer is awesome!
  • The timer helps him to brush for appropriate amount of time, so that has helped him.
  • I've used both for a month and am pleased with the ease of operation as well as performance.
  • It has been a joy to to use this product It is well made and performs with excellent
  • The sonic toothbrush is weighty and has an easy to read LED charge display.

What customers say about "Accessories"
Philips Sonicare AirFloss (HX8211/03) Rechargeable Electric Flosser
  • This is my second Sonic Air Flosser. I prefer the first air flosser's "tip", The new tip cannot be directed as well
  • The only thing I have against it is that the tip does not stay on good so I have to hold it while using.
  • The only problem that really happens often is the attachment tip. There's a perforation along the bottom or where the tip connects to the motor/pump. The tip breaks frequently.
  • Had to replace the tip as the first one broke after a couple months.
Waterpik Complete Care (WP-900) Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush
  • I was amazed at the abilities of the WaterPik with a different heads, and the timer that is on the toothbrush is been an excellent addition.
  • The flosser does not take up a lot of space, keeps the toothbrush charged, and conveniently stores accessory tips and brushes.
  • Easy to use and the accessories makes this unit complete.
  • The footprint is bigger than I would like and the extra accessory heads seem overkill to me.

What customers say about "Power"
Philips Sonicare AirFloss (HX8211/03) Rechargeable Electric Flosser
  • I use it at night only, and the battery holds up decently well
  • While it doesn't replace floss, it is powerful enough that I got a clean bill of health after three weeks of use.
  • I bought this in August and by the end of September it stopped working. I tried to drain the battery and recharge it for 24 hours-nothing.
  • Poor battery quality
  • After a short period of time the on/off switch stopped working. couldn't turn it off -had to wait for battery to die
Waterpik Complete Care (WP-900) Water Flosser and Sonic Toothbrush
  • It is compact, yet powerful enough to get the job done.
  • The water floss is really powerful but at the same time, it's adjustable.
  • The reservoir is large allowing for a longer cleansing time and I have several choices as to the intensity of the power.
  • Very powerful brush, motor /pump noisy and loud.
  • Do work your way up the power settings on the unit, the water pressure can get pretty high and damage your gums if they are not in good shape.
