Although flossing is highly recommended by the majority of dental health care professionals as a method of daily oral upkeep, it can sometimes be time consuming and, as a result, discourage some from taking the extra time to get it done. Those with that sort of reluctance regarding flossing might be aided by the Sonicare AirFloss, a new device from Philips, according to Gizmag.
The news source reports that the product uses pressurized air and water delivered in bursts to quickly and efficiently clean the spaces in between the teeth typically only reachable by flossing. Such areas are well-known as primary points for plaque and tartar to build up, and consequently, for bacteria that cause gingivitis and other forms of periodontal disease to significantly affect oral health.
Like the majority of electronic dental products, the innovations offered by the Sonicare AirFloss do not come at a particularly low cost. Its suggested retail list price, according to the news source, is to be $89.99, which some may not find to be cost-effective when compared to buying regular floss on a more continuous basis.
According to the American Dental Association, those wishing to use alternatives to flossing are advised to consult their dentist, to learn the best methods for cleaning the gums without causing them injury.
