Hopefully all your trips to our dentists and hygienist will have taught you the importance of flossing. Without using interdental aids (which means inbetween the teeth), you're actually missing out on cleaning 40% of your tooth surfaces. Infact, not flossing is even worse than not brushing your teeth. Your saliva and tongue get rid of most things that are hanging around in your mouth, but the only way to clean inbetween your teeth is to use an interdental aid.
We advise most patients to use either floss or Tepe Brushes to clean interdentally, as they are quite easy to use, readily available on the market, and do a great job. However, we know some people struggle to reach certain areas in their mouths, especially right at the back. This is where the Sonicare Airfloss comes into play.
This fantastic little device uses microburst technology that applies a quick burst of pressurised air and micro-water droplets to clean deep between teeth where a toothbrush can't reach. You can affectively floss your whole mouth in 30 seconds.
It's important to get rid of debris between your teeth as this is what leads to gum disease, bone loss and eventually, tooth loss. Poor gum health can also lead to infections and can be very painful.
