Product Description

Product Description

Panasonic’s EW1270 small, handy, oral irrigator is ideal for both home and travel use. It is easy to use, just add water and simply pour out the remaining water after cleaning. Brushing alone is usually not enough and so Panasonic’s ultra compact oral irrigator is an easy, effective way of cleaning plaque from the gum margin and the gaps between your teeth, rinsing the mouth clean. The oral irrigator’s angled nozzles allow you to access all areas of the mouth, even where the toothbrush cannot reach. You will be surprised with the results. The oral irrigator is 15cm long when packed and weights 345g (including batteries –2 x AA LR6 1.5v batteries are included in pack). When in use it extends to 22.5cm in length. It has a 165ml tank volume for use with water only as it is not suitable for adding mouthwash and the item comes with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty. With a Panasonic oral irrigator you can optimize the care and health of both your teeth and gums by thoroughly cleaning plaque and food particles from between the teeth and massaging the gums. In addition, the build up of plaque contributes to dental cavities, bad breath and gum disease and so by using an oral irrigator these effects can be significantly reduced.

1 x EW1270W830 Ultra Compact Water Flosser; 2 x AA batteries

My dentist recommended the water pik but after reading numerous reviews I was so put off by the rechargeable battery problem that most people seemed to encounter, I decided to spend the extra money on this product. I've not been disappointed. This is so much easier than trying to use floss, you've just got to remember to put it in your mouth before switching on, otherwise you get soaked! Also when filling with water - make sure the water's warm as it's a bit of a shock to your teeth if the water's cold. Buy one of these and you won't be sorry - it's my new favourite thing!

I had previously bought the Waterpik Ultra Cordless oral irrigator, but after two tries with products that died within 90 days of purchase, I decided to try out the Panasonic. It's a clever design which minimizes space and is portable (I travel quite a bit). Plus, it uses AA batteries, as opposed to the internal rechargeable battery of the Waterpik. The water jet is strong enough to get rid of gunk between the teeth yet not too strong that it causes irritation to the gums.

Overall, I give this product high marks. It's easy to use, reliable, and great for cleaning those hard-to-reach places between the teeth.

I bought one of these about 3 weeks ago. I previously used a portable Waterpik irrigator, which I liked initially, but the battery didn't last very long before it completely lost the ability to hold a charge. I gave up on irrigators for a while, but decided to get another after having trouble with bleeding gums (despite brushing at least twice daily, and eating a low sugar diet). After reading around, I discovered that the battery issue is a common problem with the Waterpik, so I decided not to buy another one, but to look for an alternative instead. I don't currently have a shaving socket, so opted for a portable unit rather than a mains operated one, and after reading the mostly positive reviews for the Panasonic EW1270, I decided to give it a try.

On the whole, I'm very happy with my purchase. After my experience with the Waterpik, I especially like the fact that it uses normal batteries, rather than needing to be charged up. Batteries were supplied with the unit, but I'm now using rechargeables. The tank is fairly small and needs to be refilled mid-use, but that's to be expected with a portable unit (I recommend using room temperature water, rather than cold water from the tap, especially if you have sensitive teeth). I also like how it can be compacted for travelling. Some reviews I've read say it's very messy to use, but I haven't really had that problem - a bit of water gets out, but it's easy to minimise spraying when you get used to it.

The only thing I really don't like is that it only comes with one nozzle. Other brands often offer multiple nozzles (generally colour coded), so more than one person can use the device, but I had to purchase extra nozzles separately to enable my husband to use it too.

My old faithful Braun died 3 years ago. With wonky teeth, I had looked at the meagre offerings to replace it. Panasonic UK should be proud to include this as a product on their website as, having taken the plunge to purchase, it is wonderful, powerful and transportable.

I know about the awful Waterpik (standard and de-luxe). My partner has endured many replacements from Argos and Boots due to the battery problem and they are clumsy and awkward to clean after use.

I expect good reports in future from my hygienist and dentist.

I've tried a couple of oral water irrigators. This is by far the best of any I've tried. I like the idea of putting in fresh batteries when it powers down as others have simply become unusable. Well worth the spend.

I had bleeding gums for over a decade when my new dentist recommended trying a water jet device. I have now used this product for about a year and within weeks of use there was a noticeable improvement. I use it, if I remember, after every meal. Together with more careful teeth cleaning using interdental brushes, I am sure the use of this product contributed to the fact that I no longer have bleeding gums and haven't had for several months. I am very happy with it and my dentist is very pleased with the results. He told me it was not a substitute for using interdental brushes or flossing but supported good oral hygiene. I use rechargeable batteries in it with each charge lasting about three weeks. Clearly the duration of use will depend on the type of rechargeable batteries being used. Based on my experience I would certainly recommend it.

Waterjets are a great idea - especially if you have complicated bridgework where flossing is no fiddly and takes ages. Alas the legendary Braun's of some years ago no longer seem available and Waterpik get bad reviews, so Panasonic may be the best bet ?

I started off with the Pamasonic EW-DJ40, which has internal rechargeable batteries. These claim 15 minutes of operation on one charge, but within a few months I noticed even this modest capacity was diminishing - and that if travelling for more than a few days, I would have to carry the charger with me. 8 months from new, I found the mains plug was connecting only intermittently and needed careful placement to stop the charger cutting out (unavoidably, it gets WET - so the terminals were corroding). 14 months from new, the motor stopped altogether. Before binning it, I conducted an 'autopsy' and found that water had somehow leaked into the device and corroded the batteries and circuitry. I also noticed that the batteries were NiMH (not LiOn) and of modest capacity (2200mah perhaps ?). All in all, it seems to me, this was doomed to be a short life device, to make its 2nd birthday.

Short of alternatives, I duly switched to the EW-1270 - which is similar to the EW-DJ40, but takes 2 x AA batteries. So far, so good ! It's rare that the 'external battery version' should outperform the rechargeable one, but this design decision keep mains electricity away from the device and also allows you to replace the main wearing part - the batteries. Even on Alkalines, Panasonic claim 20 mins of battery life, plus you have to option if travelling to fit single-use Lithiums (expensive!) or your own NiMH rechargeables (of higher capacity that the Panasonic ones). In short, I'm well impressed !
