Philips' air flossing device targets noncompliant patients
Flossing never has been a popular activity, and while some patients may floss regularly to preserve that healthy smile, most are just not motivated. At the California Dental Association fall session in San Francisco, Philips showcased a new flossing device that does away with string and gives dental practitioners a unique option for wooing noncompliant patients. Launched earlier this year as part of the company's Sonicare product line, the AirFloss uses compressed air to accelerate microdroplets of water or mouthwash to disrupt and remove plaque in between teeth where a toothbrush cannot reach. The AirFloss can clean the entire mouth in 60 seconds, according to the company.
