• Philips launch new “AirFloss” product

    Posted on March 31, 2012

    Last week Floss Dental was invited to attend the Australian launch of Philips Sonicare‘s new “AirFloss” product.

    “By brushing teeth regularly but neglecting to floss, you are only cleaning approximately 60% of your teeth. That’s equivalent to taking a shower and not cleaning a significant portion of your body.”

    The Philips Sonicare AirFloss in a great new product that uses micro-burst technology to force pressurized air and water droplets in between teeth, mechanically removing plaque. It is specifically designed to break down and remove plaque between teeth and under the gumline. AirFloss prides itself in eliminating the mess and fuss that comes with traditional flossing.

    Although not a complete substitute for flossing, we do believe that it is a good product alternative that will improve gum health for those who choose not to regularly floss because it is so simple and convenient to use. We recommend this product for:

    • People who don’t like to floss manually.
    • Those with multiple implants or bridges to clean those difficult to reach areas.
    • Patients with orthodontic appliances (braces).

    We have been trialing the product in our surgery, and think it’s great.

    We love the AirFloss.

    If you are interested in taking a look at it, or finding out more please drop by our clinic at 86 Mountain St, Broadway NSW 2007.
