'This thing is amazing': Waterpik's flossing toothbrush is $50 off at Amazon, so don't miss it

What is it?

It’s hard to ignore the fact that next-gen toothbrushes are having a moment. Whether they vibrate, spin or floss for you, these toothbrushes make your plain old manual brush look pretty pitiful. Now, you don’t have to choose, thanks to the Waterpik Sonic-Fusion 2.0 Professional Flossing Toothbrush. This brush uses sonic technology to vibrate gunk off your teeth — and it has a built-in Waterpik to blast out stuff stuck between your chompers.

This device gives you a "just left the dentist" clean from the comfort of your home.

$178 at Amazon

Why is it a good deal?

Even though Waterpik's flossing toothbrush goes on sale frequently, it hasn't been $150 in weeks. Earlier this month, you could snag it for $161. A great deal, but still not as impressive as this one. Did we mention it's at the lowest price since Prime Day?!

Why do I need this?

Here’s how it works: The brush uses the power of an advanced rechargeable sonic electric toothbrush with the tech of the popular Waterpik Water Flosser, allowing you to brush and floss at the same time, or brush and floss separately (really, it’s up to you). Even if you’re a regular flosser—which, kudos—this is up to two times as effective as traditional brushing and flossing for reducing plaque build-up and boosting gum health.

It’s also really easy to use. A simple button switches the unit from sonic brushing to water flossing. The kit includes two water flossing brush heads, a two-minute timer with a 30-second pacer, 10(!) pressure settings, a recharge indicator, a deluxe toothbrush travel case and a three-year manufacturer's warranty.

What reviewers say

This Waterpik-toothbrush combo has an army of fans. “This has to have been the best purchase so far I have bought through Amazon,” one wrote. “It’s weird getting all excited over a toothbrush, but man, this thing is amazing!”

Another five-star reviewer said the brush is even better than using a regular Waterpik and electric toothbrush separately. “How did I live without this?” they said. “I’m absolutely amazed at how clean my teeth are, and I’m more impressed how much food residue it removed from in between my teeth. I had a salad for dinner, and with my old Waterpik and toothbrush, I usually had to break out the floss to get some of the residue out. That was not the case tonight, and I didn’t even have to set the Waterpik on max to remove everything.”

One satisfied shopper reports that the brush easily tackles the tricky stuff, too: “Even washes out those pesky little bits of popcorn which were such a pain to get out after movie night. Love it!”

"The biggest problem is that the unit tips over very easily, spilling the water all over the counter," a final customer said. "They should put suction cups on the bottom to reduce this behavior."
