The Sonicare AirFloss is part of a new system designed to clean your teeth more thoroughly, known collectively as oral irrigators. The oral irrigator (or water jet) is a portable device, designed to be used at home, which works by using pressurised streams of pulsating water and air, or mouthwash, which remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and below the gumline. This then helps to dislodge biofilm (plaque) from gaps between the teeth, the gum margin and periodontal pockets. An oral irrigator can also be used on orthodontic appliances and people who have crowns and bridges. Oral irrigators were first invented as an alternative to dental flossing as many people found it difficult to use floss as they could not reach areas in the back of the mouth.
There are two main benefits of using an oral irrigator. Firstly, the device is an easy and effective way of cleaning your teeth as the water streams can reach far back into the mouth and in-between the teeth themselves. And studies have shown that just a 60 second blast is enough to clean teeth in all areas of the mouth. Secondly, tests have shown that by using an irrigator along with your daily brushing twice a day, you can remove 99% more plaque than if you only used a manual toothbrush.
Sonicare AirFloss does all the things an irrigator should do. It features the microburst technology that delivers microdroplets of air and water to remove plaque biofilm between teeth, and it’s proven safe and gentle on gums and teeth. With one-button functionality and a guidance tip that ensures targeted cleaning interproximally, patients using Sonicare AirFloss can quickly clean the entire mouth within the standard 60 seconds.
