For those of us who value healthy gums but hate flossing, a high quality electric toothbrush and a great water flosser are necessary tools — so finding both of those things in a single product is cause for celebration. It’s an even bigger party today: The Waterpik Sonic Fusion, a combination electric toothbrush and water flosser recommended to us by nine dentists, orthodontists, and dental hygienists, is cheaper than it has ever been before. With its large water tank, built-in timer, and adjustable pressure for sensitive teeth, the Sonic Fusion lets you save time by brushing and flossing all at once. As you brush, a tiny spigot sitting within the vibrating bristles sprays bursts of water into hard-to-reach areas, washing away tiny food particles. And according to Dr. Jacqueline Fulop-Goodling, an orthodontist at New York’s Dr. Smiles whom we spoke to about the best water flossers, “It removes the harmful bacteria and debris deep between teeth and below the gum line that traditional brushing and dental floss can’t reach.” Maybe most important, it’s actually … kinda fun? Nobody has ever said that about flossing.
