waterpik-replacement-tips-imageToday we will be reviewing over 11 Waterpik tips, which in total are compatible with up to 21 water flossers. I have been receiving emails from people asking “where can I buy waterpik replacement tips?” Well in this article you will not just learn where to buy waterpik replacement tips but also which waterpik attachments you should buy for which model and for what purpose.

There comes a time when your waterpik water flosser does not do the job as much as it used to, it also doesn’t look so precious anymore. Basically, everything that used to be cool about it aint cool anymore.  Don’t be driven to despair, just yet. The only trouble could be your old, moldy waterpik flosser tips. Solution? Just replace them with one of the new ones below and your teeth will appreciate it!

Before rushing for a purchase, you may also be wondering when do you tell if it’s time for tips to be replaced. Here are some signs to help you figure that out!

5 signs it’s time to replace your waterpik tips

  • The pressure has suddenly dropped. These little babies has pores on them, with every use they open up and the pores turn into holes. Hence, the pressure is no longer as intense.
  • Noticing some blackish dirt accumulating on your tip? Hard to remove or can’t be cleaned at all? Much like tartar. You don’t want that going inside your mouth, time to replace it!
  • Did you break or crack your current tip? Don’t waste any more time, scroll below and find an appropriate tip for your waterpik water flosser.
  • Does the water dribbles out instead of a strong, steady stream? Replacement is required.
  • Between 3 – 6 months of use, depends on which tip it is. (Check at the end of each tip summary below for replacement time recommendation).

waterpik-low-pressure-jet-replacement-tips

These are low pressure Waterpik 360 replacement tips designed for use on the sensitive areas of your mouth such as when you have gum inflammation. They are also a best choice for children, as children normally frown upon the high pressure of the Water flosser. The low pressure will also help them get the tip as close as possible when cleaning without hurting their delicate gums.

These tips are kind of fragile, so if you go on and buy for kids, buy a couple more just to be on the safe side. They are also colored differently, but you may notice it on the image.

[box type=”warning”] Note: These are LOW PRESSURE tips, so the stream will be very weak for most people. If you’re looking for high pressure tips for your Waterpik 360, get the first tips we featured on this list.[/box]

Computable with:

WP-360 ONLY.

Waterpik 360 replacement tips are not recommended for use with any other Waterpik model. Even though some reviewers on Amazon mentioned that they worked with the WP-100 unit.

It is recommended you replace these tips every 6 months.

5. Periogen 90 Degree Tip for WaterPik Ultra WP100 (1 in a pack)

 

The 90 degree tip is not manufactured by Waterpik, even though they should have it on their arsenal of tips. Fortunately, Periogen (the company behind the making of this tip) decided to take a standard high pressure tip, bended it to form a full 90 degree angle.

This tip will come useful on places that are hard to reach with standard tips, like behind the rear molars and incisors.

Please note: This is not a replacement tip for your standard provided tips, but would make a great addition.

The 90 degree bend makes it easy to access hard to reach parts of the mouth. But that does not mean it doesn’t come with few disadvantages.

Because of the sharp bend, it will (or may)…

  • Get clogged quicker than usual.
  • Produce lower pressure than the standard high pressure jet tip.
  • Disturb the flow of the stream.
  • Need to be replaced more often than normal.

Despite that, you will find this tip as a big improvement compared to the 45 degree tip when it comes to reaching comers of your mouth. If you own the Periogen tartar removing cream (mentioned above), then you’ll find this tip useful when you need to apply it.

Computable with:

  • WP-100

It has not been tested with other recent Waterpik flosser, but if you eager to get it, you could give it a shot if you own one of the following:

  • WP-660
  • WP-260

It could work with others too.

It is recommended you replace these tips every 3 months.

waterpik-orthodontic-tipsThe Waterpik Orthodontic tip helps in cleaning hard to access plaque that is hidden inside and around braces or orthodontic brackets.

11. Waterpik Replacement Tongue Cleaners (2 in a Pack)

waterpik-replacement-tongue-cleaners

Just because the Tongue cleaner is listed at very end of this list does not mean it is the least important replacement tip. Actually, scientific studies show that 70% of mouth odor is caused by bacteria on the hard-to-reach area at the back of the tongue.

The contoured spoon shape of the waterpik replacement head tongue cleaner traps and removes that bacteria and then uses the pulsating sprays to wet the tongue and sweep it away. So this tip is specifically designed to remove the bacteria that causes bad breath.
