Waterpik Complete Care 5.0 consists of two pieces, with one being the comb and the other the brush head. The Complete Care 5.0 is an improved follow up to the excellent first Waterpik system and electric toothbrush/mouth rinse unit. So how far has it come since its introduction? And is it a step up or a step-down?
Firstly, let’s look at how the complete care 5.0 compares to the older model of Waterpik, the wp-900. At first glance the two seem very similar, both using the same cleaning head, albeit a little larger than the older model. The teeth are also roughly the same size, albeit slightly misaligned, which can be fixed by some simple adjustment. As you can see, it’s pretty much a replica of the older model.
Now to compare the new Waterpik complete care 5.0 to the older model of Waterpik we have to take a look at the brushes. The bristles are different, stiffer, and pointier and do not brush as deeply as the older model. This may well be to make the comb easier to use but this doesn’t affect the effectiveness of the brushing, and in fact, maybe an advantage as some people prefer a firmer brush when cleaning their mouths.

The other thing we have to compare is the way the system works. The way that Waterpik complete care 5.0 works is by the rotating brushes on the comb, and the floss head in the travel case, holding two strips of fabric. The floss heads do not move freely on the teeth but are held in place with slight pressure. This results in the water being cleaned between the teeth and in the crevices of the teeth.
The new Waterpik complete care 5.0 also has two additional settings: one for hot water and another for cold water. When used in the shower, this can be a great addition, making it much better than the older model. The hot/cold switch is much better on this model, too. It’s not that easy to turn on and off with the older model, and it was always a hassle to try to get the temperature right. It’s just a much better feature.
Overall, the sonic electric technologies included in Waterpik Complete Care 5.0 are simply fantastic. The design has been refined so that it’s easier than ever to get the full benefit of your toothbrush. There is no more wrapping your arm around the bristles. No more reaching for the bottle of mouthwash or toothpaste. No more reaching for your toothbrush heads to brush out all the flakes. This new model just works, period.
