The Philips Sonicare AirFloss provides you with an easy and effective way to clean between adjoining teeth. Its improved yet simple design can help you complete your flossing in only 30 seconds with unexpectedly good results. The device is handled by a single button and a guidance tip makes sure that the cleaning is targeted.

Many people skip flossing because is difficult and time consuming. However, the ones that do not include flossing in their daily oral hygiene routine are at risk, because they let bacteria build up between the teeth causing bad breath and eventually plaque. By using Philips Sonicare AirFloss, your dentist will be impressed at your next visit and you will only need to have spent 30 seconds a day on your pearly whites.

The Sonicare AirFloss is based on microburst technology combined with auto-burst to clean more effectively and more quickly. This micro-droplet technology initiates a brief burst of air under pressure and micro-droplets of water (or mouthwash) in order to clean deep between adjacent teeth where a toothbrush is unable to reach.

It has been shown that this technology, although it is very gentle, is very effective as it removes up to five times more plaque than a regular toothbrush. As a result, Sonicare AirFloss can considerably improve gum health in two weeks time, while at the same time help prevent the formation of cavities between teeth. The appliance is tender on teeth and gums and safe to use on dental work such as orthodontics, implants, veneers etc.

The air bursts can be initiated either manually by pressing the single button of the device or with the auto-burst feature, which enables you to clean your whole mouth in only 30 seconds, simply by holding the button down moving the guidance tip from space to space. This way it will release automatically a burst of pressurized air and the micro-droplets in one second intervals. Then again if you wish for more time you can go back to a simple press of the button for a single burst and so forth.

The device has an ergonomic handle that is easy to hold. The handle features a thin, angled nozzle designed to access easily all areas of your mouth. There are replacement nozzles available in different color tips that enable hygienic sharing of the same device. The guidance tips allow easy and exact positioning of the nozzle between teeth. A tip fits at the small gap as you guide it along the gumline finding the best spot for optimal results. For maximum efficiency you should change your nozzle every 6 months.

The guidance tip makes it easy to find the tight spaces between teeth and place the tip at the appropriate angle for maximum cleaning. Simply guide it along the gum line until the tip fits into the groove between the teeth. Replace your AirFloss nozzle every 6 months for optimal results.

The reservoir is at the handle of the AirFloss. It is easy to fill either with water or with your favorite mouthwash. This will add to the effectiveness of the process leaving you with a fresh feeling and cool breath. A single treatment requires less than a teaspoon of liquid. So, while it’s not quite water-free, it relies much more on the air than water, hence why we don’t consider it a traditional oral irrigator.

The product is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which has been designed to last for two weeks. It has a battery indicator light positioned on the power button which flashes when the battery needs to be recharged. All Sonicare products fit the standard Sonicare charger so that there is no need for multiple chargers. The Phiilips Sonicare AirFloss package includes the handle and the nozzle, as well as the charger base.

The product has about 200 reviews on Amazon and a 3.5-star rating. It is certainly a different experience than a flosser such as the Waterpik Ultra or this Panasonic model, but if you want the ease of not using much liquid, this is still certainly a solid unit, especially if you get it on sale at
