Philips Sonicare AirFloss® Pro
The focus on technology in my dental practice has helped pinpoint highly effective techniques in delivering treatment to patients, whether I’m placing an implant or advising oral hygiene habits based on a patient’s medical history. For patients with arthritis and other conditions hindering their manual dexterity, electric toothbrushes are a helpful tool to keep up their oral hygiene habits at home. However, as effective as electric toothbrushes are, cleaning interdental and interproximal areas is still a concern. The AirFloss® Pro bridges this hygiene gap, giving my patients a proven and efficient way to overcome difficulties with flossing. This interdental cleaner can be used with mouthwash or water, and the little bursts of liquid and air help clean each interproximal area from plaque and debris.
