Does Oral-B make a water flosser and where can you get it?

Yes, Oral-B does make water flossers.

However, their range is limited, and not as good, compared to the likes of Waterpik.

If you want a water flosser, I strongly encourage you to take a look at our best water flosser post. This will give you a list of tried and tested options that are available to purchase.

Should you want to know more about the Oral-B water flosser range then read on.

Oral-B Aquacare Water Flosser

What water flossers does Oral-B make?

At the time of writing, to my knowledge, Oral-B is currently manufacturing 5 different water flossers. There are:

The Aquacare 4 and 6 are cordless water flossers.  

What this means is that they have a water tank and rechargeable battery built-in.  You do not have to be connected to a physical power source to use it.

The MD20 and Oral-B Health Center options are countertop units that need to be connected to power to function.

The OxyJet MD20 is a traditional water flosser that most of us picture.

The Health Centre versions as the same thing, but they have an electric toothbrush provided in the box too.  Think of these as a bundle and a complete solution for your oral health.

The configuration of the Health Center is such that the charging stand for the toothbrush is built-into the whole unit, rather than being separate.  This means that both the water flosser handle and the toothbrush dock to the health centre.

All bar the Health Centre’s are available in the UK.

You can source the Health Centre units from Central Europe and use them in the UK, providing you have the correct power adapters.

The Aquacare 4 and 6 are the newest models, first introduced in 2019, whilst the other OxyJet models have been around for quite some time.  That said, whilst the OxyJet water flosser element has been around for a while, the health centre bundles do contain newer style toothbrushes.

Oral-B has sold a number of different variants within the UK.

The names and part numbers of these include:

  • AdvancePower WaterJet
    • Models: MD3, MD30, MD31, OC3, OC30, OC31, OC301

    • Model: MD19, OC19, MD20, OC20, OC21
    • Type: 37249

All of the current models use the OxyJet nozzle.  This is a proprietary product, working only with Oral-B made irrigators.

The nozzle fits to the top of the Aquacare cordless units or to the handle on the OxyJet countertop units.  It allows the water to flow from the handle of the irrigators and pushes the water out through the tip.

A grey slider switch just under the head of the nozzle allows the jet of water exiting to be changed from either a continuous and more powerful jet of water or a softer, rotational flow of water.

Truth be told, whilst many of Oral-B’s products are very good, the OxyJet is a bit of an exception.  Don’t get me wrong, it does work.  But, performance, quality and reliability are not great.  

You may be able to cut Oral-B some slack because the OxyJet design is quite old now, but the newer cordless Aquacare models really are not that much better.  They look nice and on paper sound ok, but in practice, they just don’t function as well as Waterpik or many of the other ‘cheap’ brands that you find online.

Where can I buy an Oral-B water flosser?

If you really want to buy an Oral-B water flosser over and above our recommendations in the best water flosser article, then Amazon is one of the best places to buy them from.

They are not widely stocked, but online seller Chemist 4U has the new Aquacare models.

You can find them on eBay too. Just be aware there is a higher likelihood of it being a European import or having been used previously. 

If you are after the OxyJet nozzles, you can buy those on Amazon.

Oral-B water flosser reviews

I have reviewed the models that are available within the UK.

The following links will take you through to my own hands-on review.

Conclusion

Oral-B’s range of water flossers are limited within the UK, but you do have a few options.

They are satisfactory, but in truth you can probably get better oral irrigators from brands such as Waterpik.
