Sonicare® AirFloss: An Easy Way to Clean Between Your Teeth, Anchorage, Alaska

Although flossing is important in a dental care routine, some people still skip this vital step. For many, it feels like an uncomfortable hassle, and they might figure their mouths are clean enough without it. However, the Sonicare® AirFloss can improve your oral hygiene by offering the benefits of flossing without the need for pushing thread between your teeth.

What Is the Sonicare AirFloss?

Created by Philips, the Sonicare AirFloss is a device you can fill with water or mouthwash to spray between your teeth. Using a combination of air and liquid, the nozzle applies gentle pressure against your gums.

dental careIf you do this for a full minute, you’ll get rid of the plaque and tartar that accumulates in the crevices. The standard Sonicare AirFloss model has all these capabilities, but the AirFloss Ultra also lets you choose from three different settings: single, double, or triple bursts. This allows you to customize your dental care routine. 

What Are the Advantages?

Clinical studies have shown that Sonicare AirFloss is just as effective as string floss at performing the same job. In two weeks, people see a remarkable improvement in gum health. The device is easy to use and incorporate into a dental care routine. It’s low maintenance, too; just replace the nozzle every six months to keep it working.

The Sonicare AirFloss is highly recommended for anyone who has trouble flossing consistently for any reason. It’s a greater cost up front, but it can save you money on teeth cleaning and prevent oral health problems in the long run.
