About the product
Brushing alone is not enough! The Waterpik® Water Flosser provides a unique combination of water pressure and pulsations to clean deep between teeth and below the gumline, removing harmful bacteria and debris that traditional brushing and flossing can't reach. Waterpik® created the Cordless Advanced Water Flosser to be its best and most innovative cordless water flosser yet. It’s perfect for people on-the-go or those who want to water floss, but don’t have the space for a full-sized unit. It's also waterproof and may be used in the shower. Advanced features include a new rapid magnetic charge system, an extra-quiet design, electronic pressure control system with 3 settings, 360-degree tip rotation, and an easy-to-fill reservoir with 45 seconds of water capacity. The Cordless Advanced also includes 4 water flossing tips, a travel water plug, and travel bag. The Waterpik® Water Flosser is clinically proven to be more effective than traditional dental floss and it's perfect for anyone with braces or implants, and those with crowns, bridges, and veneers.
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.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Waterpik Cordless Advanced (WP-560) Cordless Advanced Water Flosser
  • I love the 3 speeds. I have a medical condition that causes places on my tongue, to become open wounds. That slow speed helps me!
  • Great flosser - does the job perfectly. Variable speeds as well.
  • It comes with 4 tips: 2 Classic, 1 Orthodontic, 1 Plaque Seeker.
  • Well designed. Good pressure. Variety of tips.
  • This product waterfall is not very smoothie and the Handel is not flexible.Small capacity, I need to bottling two times when I use this.
  • The only reason it's 4 stars is because of the reservoir capacity.
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

What customers say about "Product Dimentions"
Waterpik Cordless Advanced (WP-560) Cordless Advanced Water Flosser
  • Perfect size for a small bathroom counter and works well.
  • This was a perfect choice for a traveling Water Pik. I had no complaints. Of course I had to refill it twice, but that was expected because of the size. It did the job for me. Very satisfied.
  • Love the compact size and quality.
  • It might look bulky but it is doesn't feel like it and looks ergonomic enough for me.
  • Bulky and messy but, gets the job done.
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.

What customers say about "Specifications"
Waterpik Cordless Advanced (WP-560) Cordless Advanced Water Flosser
  • The head can fully rotate.
  • I like that it has a battery indicator that lights when it's low.
  • Waterpik is doing a great job cleaning and massaging my gum.
  • Not strong enough pulse to replace my home model, but ok for temporary use.
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.

What customers say about "Accessories"
Waterpik Cordless Advanced (WP-560) Cordless Advanced Water Flosser
  • Has 3 speed settings and a variety of attachments to effectively clean hard to reach by brushing areas.
  • Comes with multiple tips. Most of the ones with brushes say they'll need replacing after 3-6 months, but the one that's just a clear plastic tube seems like it will last longer
  • Came with a case for extra tips and a convenient bag to transport.
  • It charges very fast and it came with 4 different attachments for different needs. It does not hurt your gums and your mouth feels much cleaner afterward.
  • It is exactly what we wanted. But unfortunately the water pic head attachment now pops out of the device after 10 seconds of use, always. The product is now unusable. I have tried all of the heads that come with the device; they all pop out.
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.

What customers say about "Power"
Waterpik Cordless Advanced (WP-560) Cordless Advanced Water Flosser
  • Charging is quick and easy with the magnetic charge cord.
  • The battery attachment is great.
  • The magnetic charger attaches to the front, just below silver rim of the control panel.
  • The device indicates it current battery status by flashing one time per third of its capacity.
  • It is heavy and ackward to use. The battery only provides enough power for 2 uses before it needs to be re-charged.
  • Battery life is awful
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
