The Best Cheap Water Flossers For Sale on Amazon in 2019

It's hard to say whether a water flosser is better than traditional string floss.

Most of the clinical studies that I've found have ties back to the manufacturer of a single product. As you might imagine, these studies conclude:

A.) The product is awesome; and

B.) The product is more effective than its competitors.

I ignored those studies. Unfortunately, the other studies that examine the effectiveness of "oral irrigators" have weakly-worded conclusions like "could be useful." 

My two cents: Ask your dentist if he or she recommends a water flosser for removing plaque or maintaining gingival health. If so, here are the best-reviewed water flossers that have sold for $50 or less in the past year:

A few customers caution that this flosser doesn't last much longer than its two-year warranty.
