Panasonic Travel Oral Irrigator Review

When it comes to brushing and flossing, I am nowhere near as good as I should be. I know that we’re supposed to brush at least twice a day, but I have a busy lifestyle, and I can’t always manage the best oral hygiene routine. This is especially true when it comes to flossing because I don’t want to spend time picking between my teeth all the time.

Recently, however, my dentist recommended getting a water flosser. It’s the same thing that he uses to clean out my teeth and mouth during my bi-annual cleaning, and he said that it is a great way to improve my oral health without struggling with floss. After some convincing, I finally caved and got the Panasonic Travel Oral Irrigator. At first, I was a little hesitant, and it got my face all wet, but after a couple of tries, I finally got the hang of it, and I have to say I wish that I had known about this sooner.

If you want a quick and easy way to clean your teeth without cutting your gums with dental floss, the Panasonic Travel Oral Irrigator is for you.

Panasonic Travel Oral Irrigator

Why should you choose Panasonic Travel Oral Irrigator:

Portable Design

I take a lot of trips for work, which means that I need a travel kit that can fit in my bag and take up as little space as possible. The Travel Irrigator is compact and highly portable, meaning that I can take it with me wherever I go, and it works great all the time.

Two Pressure Settings

One of the best features of this water flosser is that it comes with two pressure settings. If I have seeds or fibrous foods stuck in my teeth, I turn it to high pressure, and they come out with ease. If you have more sensitive gums, the lower setting works great and doesn’t hurt at all. Overall, you can get the results you want without any pain or hassle.

100% Waterproof

Sometimes I’m running late for a meeting, which is part of the reason I skipped brushing in the first place. With this device, however, I can fill it up and use it in the shower, meaning that I can kill two birds with one flosser. Also, if I ever drop it in the sink or the toilet (it only happened once), I don’t have to worry about it shorting out or dying on me.

Large Water Tank

Part of the reason I chose this model over other ones that I saw was that the water reservoir is bigger than most. Many water flossers only can maintain pressure for twenty or thirty seconds. This bad boy, however, can last up to forty seconds with one filling, meaning that I can take care of my whole mouth and still have a little left to spare.
