I owned an electric toothbrush 20 yrs ago. I have never owned a Waterpik. I was interested in owning both and assumed an "all-in-one" would be best...
2 buttons (one for brushing, one for pik-ing)
Detachable brush/pik head
2-minute auto-off cycle for brushing (or press for manual off)
Water tank for approx 2 flossing sessions
Adjustable waterpik strength (#7 seems right for me)
Travel case for brush
Seems to be effective. Soft bristles. Loud. Tickles until you get used to it. Very easy to press too hard with the brush.
Seems to be effective. I like #10 for the blasting power but it is too much. I have settled in around #7. I can feel the water shoot through gaps. Feels therapeutic. Have already squirted the wall, the mirror, and my shirt by accident...more than once. One one or two occasions I could not get the pik to work without setting it back on the cradle for a moment (as if to "reset" the toothbrush). The pik pump is loud.
It takes up a fair amount of real estate on my sink even though the design is compact. Brush unit mounts nicely in base for charging. Charging/squirt cord stays connected well while in use or on charger. Water tube coils back nicely--curious to see if it ends up getting permanently stretched out one day. Charge indicator lights on the brush are bright. Power indicator light on base is bright. Our ensuite bathroom has a slider door that we don't close at night--the charging lights are so bright they are distracting at night.
Hard to know the effectiveness without a before/after dental visit. The device is messy and, in my opinion, you should not brush and pik at the same time unless using the lowest pik pressure setting. The non-adjustable charging indicator lights are so bright they bother me at night--to the extent I take the toothbrush off the charger at night and cover the base power light with a towel.
Additionally, the device is too loud for me to use in the morning without waking my spouse (even if I were to close the door).
Nonetheless, the device does what it says it does: My teeth and mouth ***feel very clean*** after use.
I suppose if you want a quality electric toothbrush and a Waterpik, the all-in-one is a decent option, just know that the process can be messy and noisy...and probably won't work if you need to store it on a small or pedestal sink. I'll rate it as GOOD for its teeth cleaning ability but I would only recommend the Water Pik Sonic-Fusion if you are willing to deal with the noise, mess and storage concerns.
I work with foodies who always talk about the importance of a good set of knives for food prep. I bought a 15 piece Henckels set from Best Buy for an incredibly great price. This product did not disappoint. I love them!
I have to say I was excited to get this product and try it! I have owned an electric toothbrush for years and was looking forward to all the new features of this one
The packaging was very well done. It was just enough packaging to get the product delivered. In the box was everything needed to get this product up and running.
The initial setup was simple and I was up and running in a matter of just minutes that was including the initial charge.
I felt like it was very well made and the fit and finish was excellent. The one downfall that I didn’t like was that the water reservoir has wholes built in and to me that just lets dust and other particles get in. Especially if you have it located your bathroom like myself.
The toothbrush itself felt like it didn’t not clean my teeth as well as my current one. It was kind of loud and the timer worked well. One other comment is that it does come with a travel case but there is no way to charge it if you take it with you on a trip.
The actual water flossing was excellent and being able to control the water pressure was excellent. I really felt like this is where this device shined. I loved how well it actually flossed my teeth.
-Very well built and stylish
-Super easy to get setup
-Toothbrush has a 2 min timer
-It has a travel case
-Has a cap for your toothbrush head
-The floss action is great
-adjustable water pressure
-There is no charger for travel
-The toothbrush doesn’t really clean that well
-There is holes in the water reservoir that could potentially let in germs
Overall, I feel that this product is just ok. I do like the flossing feature but that is about it. I would recommend this to a friend if they are in the market for something like this.
I love it that I have the water flosser and the tooth brush together with the flexibility to use them individually or combined. I also like the possibility to set the strength of the water stream.
It works very well for - I feel my teeth and the space between them are very clean with very little work.
Being a longtime Waterpik user dating back to the 1980s, I jumped at the chance to do a Tech Insider Network review of Waterpik's newest oral irrigator, the SF-01 sonic-fusion with its all-in-one water-flossing brush head. Overall, I'm very impressed with the SF-01 and can highly recommend it to anyone looking to step up their oral hygiene program.
First, my hands have fine motor skill problems and limited strength. So, I'm very happy to report that the Waterpik SF-01 is quite useable by someone with hand issues. It's easy to setup, operate, and clean. The fact that the irrigator is integrated into the brush allows you to grip the larger body of the brush instead of trying to maintain control of a slim irrigator tip at the end of a fussy hose coil. The whole concept is great. There's even rows of gripper bumps down the back of the brush body and on the surface of the irrigator's on/off button. The product designers seem to have incorporated every accessibility feature they could into this well designed and easy to use product.
I'm a big guy with a large mouth. And at first, when I was unpacking the SF-01, I was concerned about the small size of the brush head. However, I quickly found out that Waterpik's ultra-sonic technology makes up for the small size of the brush head. It did a great job of cleaning and getting into all the places in my mouth that it needed to reach. In fact, after listening to me praise the smallish size of the brush head, my wife wanted to try it. So we bought a pair of replacement brush heads. When she tried it, she found the small brush size to be a welcome change for her because she is petite with a small mouth. So I guess brush size is relative and makes no difference in effectiveness in this case. It looks like we'll be buying a second SF-01 for her.
I've read on the Internet that a few people think the SF-01's oral irrigator is a little on the wimpy side. But, I found that to be totally wrong. While the SF-01 seems to have a little less water flow rate than my last Waterpik system, it is completely adequate to the task. I think the SF-01's water stream is a finer stream than my last Waterpik, but performs just as well disloging food particles from between teeth and under gum lines.
I usually set the Pressure Control dial on 7, but I thought I'd crank it up to the maximum rate of 10 to see if it would do an even better job. I couldn't take it and quickly dialed it back down to 7. In fact, you can injure your gums using any oral irrigator with the pressure set too high.
Like I said, the SF-01's irrigator stream is a fine stream and is actually a little hard to see especially in a white sink basin. To really see it in action, I set it on 10 and pointed the SF-01 irrigator stream at the water stream coming from my bathroom sink faucet. Do that and you'll be able to see how well the SF-01's pressure, pulsing, and flow actually knocks the faucet stream all over the place. That's a really good way to see how effective the pulsing is.
We always use reverse osmosis water in our Waterpiks. We find the machines last years longer than they would with the harder water we have here in the Midwest. We do add 3 ounces of mouthwash in the reservoir with the RO water. Makes for a refreshing dental irrigation session. With this new all-in-one Waterpik I first brush for two minutes with toothpaste, then when the brush automatically shuts off after the two minutes, I press the switch to start the water flossing irrigator. Then I irrigate until the reservoir is empty. Finally, I rinse the reservoir with about an ounce of RO water and turn the irrigator back on to flush any remaining mouthwash water from the system. Our waterpiks have lasted for years using RO water exclusively. I expect no less from this new sonic-fusion machine.
Being that the brush heads are the only consumable on the SF-01, I feel it's worth mentioning that Waterpik might be risking sales of this nice sonic-fusion machine when customers find out they have to pay $24.99 for two replacement brush heads. They are unique on the market because the irrigator water channel must pass through the brush head. But, unfortunately they'll be hanging in the stores right next to other brands of replacement brush heads marked at a tenth of the price of the sonic-fusion brush heads. Waterpik might want to revisit their replacement brush head pricing.
In summary, we're very pleased with all aspects of this new all-in-one brushing/water flossing systems. So much so that we're buying another Waterpik SF-01 sonic-fusion despite the high cost of the replacement brush heads.
Second week using this brush and so far my feelings are so so. One note of advice, do not brush and floss at the same time or you will end up losing the toothpaste on the brush because the use of the floss will wash it all away! So either brush first and then floss or vice versa. I rarely floss my teeth regularly (once a week at the most). So the water floss is definitely better than nothing. You should lean over the sink to do it though. On the side, there is a knob that lets you control how hard the water should come out. My advice would be to start low and then as your teeth get used to it, dial it up so to speak. But I have flossed before and so I know what that feels like. Water flossing helps. It’s easy to use. You can get your back teeth (hard to do with a floss) and your gums feel great. And again, they make it super easy. This is really the kind of thing that’s great for people who have a hard time flossing, may want to do this in addition to flossing because it helps your gums. To get the best effect from the flosser, you need to have the setting set to at least 6. But using it at this setting sometimes makes a mess if you are not really careful or if you are new to the Waterpik and just getting used to it.
1. Duo Floss/Brush Combo - It's nice to have all in one so you don't have to switch from toothbrush to flosser
2. Floss - Works well like any other floss pik
1. The toothbrush is okay, but it's definitely not as strong as the regular sonicare toothbrushes which I happen to have and have been using for more than 5 years
2. Too bulky to travel with
3. The floss unit is cumbersome, the cord is too short and resulted in a bit of a mess with the whole unit dropping on the floor and spilling water everywhere! So I had to hold the unit with my hand for it to stay in place in order to use the floss option.
Overall review: It's a nice idea but definitely needs some work. $150 is a significant investment. But given you brush your teeth 3 times a day or more, you will get your money's worth out of using it.
I struggle with this review because it a cool gadget but it has a lot of not so good features.
Good: cool factor, the color, holds water, charges quickly, it brushes your teeth and rinse your mouth all with one push of a button.
Not so good: having to refill the water often, the brush is too soft, only comes with one brush, if you want to use the water you have to stay hooked up to the base, so you want walk and brush, the water part can get messy and depending on your hand position it takes focus to turn it off. I’ve used it at level 6 and I have about 7 seconds before my mouth is gushing with water. Maybe I’m doing it wrong.
I still enjoy using it.
I have had a water pic for years and found myself not using it as much as I should. To me this is the perfect solution to making sure I use my water pik every day.
Fill the reservoir as any water pik and then utilize the flossing toothbrush attachment to do both flossing and brushing at the same time. There is a setting for the Sonic Fusion to signal you to switch from each quadrant of your mouth every 30 seconds so you are sure to brush and floss your whole mouth each time in a two minute period.
The heads are interchangeable (for different people in the household to be able to use) and should be replaced at regular intervals. Overall the Sonic Fusion works great and helps in maintaining oral hygiene which is more and more important.
A:AnswerI really like this because it's all in one unit.It has a daily for the water pick so you can set it at what you want on force of water,I mean a dial to turn.i dont think this is great for long travel though nothing to take for charging except big unit so when I fly it will stay at home.
A:AnswerThe Sonic-Fusion does not contain a battery in the water flosser portion. To use the flossing portion it will need to be plugged into an active electrical outlet. However, it is global voltage and can be used with 220v.
