The Philips Sonicare AirFloss, marketed as the latest in “interdental cleaning” is a superb little gadget. Think back to your last dentist visit, no doubt the hygienist advised you that more flossing is required. It’s not an easy task to floss, and one that most gentleman have the time to commit to, making the AirFloss even more valuable. The device is proven to remove up to 99 per cent more dental plaque from between teeth than brushing alone, a staggering number.

It possesses a unique microburst technology, which during Philips consumer testing; 86% of users found easier to use than floss. AirFloss works by using a rapid burst of air and water droplets that can reach up to 45mph to fill the interproximal area between teeth and force plaque and bacteria out. This rapid burst is directed using a nozzle guidance tip that ensures targeted cleaning between teeth and the one-button operation cleans the entire mouth in less than a minute, while using less than one teaspoon of water for two full cleaning sessions. Pretty clever stuff.

The device is easy to use, with its ergonomically designed handle and angled nozzle to access all areas of the mouth and comes with a cordless, rechargeable handle.

“We understand the struggle that many consumers face finding time to regularly clean between their teeth,’’ says Jodie Bridge, Sr Marketing Manager, Philips Oral Healthcare. “Sonicare AirFloss was developed to improve oral health with an easy-to-use device that consumers will love to use daily.”

Get yourself a quality electric toothbrush, Philips would suggest the Sonicare – which we reviewed here. Some fine toothpaste, may we suggest Marvis Mint (£5.50) and the Philips Sonicare AirFloss (RRP £100), for a solid oral care routine.
