Philips (the company that makes the Sonicare electric toothbrush) has now come out with the Sonicare AirFloss. This is a great product for those who have a hard time flossing due to tight teeth, small mouths, or braces, or those people who just don’t like to floss. Now you can clean in between all of your teeth in about 60 seconds. The AirFloss has a reservoir which holds water and/or Listerine (if you are going to use Listerine, you will want to make sure to run warm water through the nozzle a couple of times per week to prevent clogging). Place the AirFloss between your teeth, holding it up against the side of your teeth while pointing the tip in between two teeth, and then press the button. The AirFloss will send a quick burst of air and water at the same time and blast plaque and debris out from in between the teeth. Cleaning between the teeth is quick and very easy with this new device. Ask us about the Sonicare AirFloss at your next dental appointment!
