Anyone who has been to the dentist is familiar with being asked if they floss regularly – and being admonished if they admit to not doing so. There’s no question as to whether regular flossing is an important part of maintaining good oral health – it is. But using normal dental floss simply doesn’t agree with everyone.
It’s costly; it might shred, or get caught in the gaps between teeth; sometimes it causes gums to bleed; and the many miles of used floss and associated packaging stay in landfills and the environment for a great number of years.
Fortunately, there’s an advanced alternative: The Philips Sonicare Airfloss HX8211/02 Power Flosser. Keep reading to learn more about this exciting new way to clean between your teeth – without all the discomfort and waste.
Here’s a rundown of the features
- Fast: autofire mode cleans between all the teeth in just 30 seconds
- Effective: removes up to 99% more plaque and debris between teeth than manual brushing alone
- Microburst technology: compressed air and high speed water droplets powerfully but gently clean deep between teeth
- Safe: a gentle way to clean and massage along the gum lines and between the teeth
- Long battery life – up to 2 weeks of use between charges
Philips Sonicare AirFloss Reviewed by Brian Ferguson
The Sonicare AirFloss has been proven to remove up to 99 percent more plaque from between teeth compared to brushing alone – even when using a manual toothbrush. If you haven’t made the switch to an electric toothbrush (which is superior to its manual counterpart), consider upgrading your old dental floss to a Sonicare AirFloss.
Helps Treat and Prevent Gum Disease
Gum disease is a potentially serious disease that attacks the gums and bones which surround the teeth. In advanced cases, it can even cause teeth to loosen and fall out. Despite being largely preventable, most adults fall prey to it sometime in their lives. Fortunately, the AirFloss Power Flosser has been clinically proven to remove hard to reach food and plaque particles from between the teeth, stimulating the gums to help them grow and preventing gum disease.
Enjoyable and Easy to Use
Flossing isn’t what most people consider a “fun” activity – but the Philips Sonicare AirFloss is so easy and pleasant to use that 96 percent of people who were previously classed as “inconsistent flossers” continued to use the AirFloss four or more days each week after one month – a rate of compliance which far exceeds regular flossing.
Advanced Technology for Excellent Results
Philips incorporated Microburst technology into the AirFloss – an innovative process which sends quick bursts of micro-water droplets and pressurized air in between teeth where no brush can reach – just like ordinary dental floss, but more effective, and without any discomfort.
It’s easy to take aim at plaque and bacteria – all that’s necessary is to position the guidance tip of the Power Flosser between two teeth and press the button. As you move along your gum line and briefly rest the device between each tooth, water bursts are automatically released. The whole process takes less than 30 seconds. The slim, angled nozzle head means you don’t need to kink your wrists in order to get into those difficult to reach areas.
Microburst technology means the Airfloss requires only a small amount of water in its easy to fill reservoir. Less water equals less mess – and the benefits can be enhanced if mouthwash is used instead. (Philips cautions users to avoid mouthwashes containing Isopropyl Myristate, which could damage the device.)
If you already have a Philips Sonicare toothbrush (excluding the DiamondClean), the Airfloss can use the same charging base, reducing bathroom counter clutter.
Philips HX8211/02 Sonicare AirFloss Conclusion
The Philips Sonicare AirFloss wonderfully complements any Philips or other brand of electric toothbrush. Its advanced design means your teeth can have all the benefits of manual flossing – but better, faster and easier, with less waste and more comfort.
