AIRFLOSS
BY PHILIPS S ON ICA RE
is simply an easier way to clean between teeth. As
dentists and hygienists, we have always recommended
to our patients the strong one-two punch of brushing
and flossing to keep gingival tissues healthy and to
prevent or control periodontal disease. We know the
importance of removing food particles between teeth,
but many of our patients do not use floss on a regular basis. This means that they are not reaching the
bacteria that can build up between teeth that cause
plaque, bad breath, inflammation, and infection. Since
we are now aware of the connection between periodontal inflammation and diabetes, heart disease, and
stroke, we must find an alternative to flossing. Philips
Sonicare has introduced a new, effortless alternative — Sonicare AirFloss. The revolutionary microburst
technology delivers a quick burst of air and water to
effectively, yet gently, clean between teeth. Sonicare
AirFloss is proven to remove up to 99% more plaque
between teeth than brushing with a manual toothbrush
alone. To use the charged unit, add water or mouthwash to the reservoir, place the tip in the interproximal
area between the teeth, and apply gentle pressure. As
the tip rests between the outside (buccal/facial) surfaces of teeth, press the activation button. Then move
the AirFloss to the next interproximal area and repeat
the process. It takes only about a minute to clean
between teeth without the hassle of floss. In fact, 86%
of patients who flossed inconsistently found it easier to
use than floss. Sonicare AirFloss is tough on plaque,
yet has proven safe and gentle on gingival tissue,
teeth, and enamel.
