Philips says that its new Sonicare AirFloss can remove up to 99 per cent more dental plaque
Dental professionals inform us that cleaning between the teeth is essential to good tooth and gum health but regular flossing can be at best time consuming and at worst painful. Philips has introduced a new member to its Sonicare range of dental care products at IFA 2011 that dislodges interdental plaque and bacteria with rapid bursts of air and water. The cordless Sonicare AirFloss is about the same size as a standard electric toothbrush and features an angled nozzle with guidance tip for precision placement.
Philips says that its new Sonicare AirFloss can remove up to 99 per cent more dental plaque from between teeth than brushing alone. The lithium-ion battery-powered device works by sending quick blasts of pressurized air and water droplets through an angled nozzle towards the teeth at anything up to 45 mph, forcing plaque and bacteria out from their respective hiding places. Benefiting from one button operation, it’s said that the whole mouth can be spring cleaned in less than a minute.
