Panasonic EW1211A Dental Water Flosser Review

For many people, flossing their teeth is a chore. I know that it was for me, and I never liked doing it. Sometimes I would go days without cleaning just because I didn’t want to deal with it. And don’t even get me started on flossing. Every time I would floss it would be a painful experience, so I never did it. That is until I got some serious news from my dentist. After multiple cavities, he told me that if I didn’t start taking care of my teeth that I would need dentures in a few years. The thought of losing most of my teeth was a major wake-up call, and I knew that I needed to act.

That’s when I found the Panasonic EW1211A Dental Water Flosser. I tried flossing the old fashioned way, but it hurt too much, and I bled everywhere. A water flosser can clean out between teeth effectively and painlessly, meaning that you can take care of your mouth without it being a hassle.

If you want to keep your teeth clean without having to cut into your gums every time, then this device is for you.

Panasonic EW1211A Dental Water Flosser Overview:

Three Pressure Settings

The first thing I noticed about the  Panasonic EW1211A Water Flosser is that it has multiple pressure settings. My dentist told me that the reason I hated flossing was that my gums were sensitive. Well, with the water flosser, I can get between the cracks without hurting myself, and I can adjust the pressure to be as powerful or relaxing as I need. Whether you have extra sensitive gums like me or need something a bit more robust to get between your teeth, the EW1211A has you covered.

Handheld Cordless Design

When I first started looking at water oral irrigators, I noticed that many designs had a big, bulky cord and were attached to a large water tank. That didn’t look appealing to me, which is why I went with this model instead. All you do is fill the compartment with water (or mouthwash) and then you’re ready to go. A rechargeable battery lets you clean your teeth without having to worry about a cord getting in the way. You could say that the EW1211A is very “handy.”

100% Waterproof

Another thing I like about this water flosser is that I can take it into the shower with me. Since I started using this device, I’ve been cleaning my teeth twice a day, so I love that I can multitask and shower and clean my teeth at the same time. Also, you can even wash it in the dishwasher when it starts to get dirty, meaning that you will always have a clean, pristine machine.

Two Flosser Nozzles Included

While having different water pressures is a fantastic way to ensure that your teeth get as clean as they need to be, what really makes  Panasonic EW1211A Dental Water Flosser effective is that it comes with two different flossing nozzles. If you need to reach into nooks and crannies, you can swap out the nozzle to get the best angle. Usually, I use one for my molars and then the other for my front teeth, but you can customize your experience to meet your needs.
