Philips Sonicare Airfloss Review – Should You Buy It?

The Philips Sonicare Airfloss is a stylish and thoughtfully designed dental flosser which is incredibly intuitive to use. Unlike other water flossers on the market, it uses a unique combination of pressurized air and microdroplets of water to dislodge food particles and plaque from hard to reach areas (view on Amazon).

Philips strives to improve people’s lives through meaningful innovation, and they have been doing that since 1891. If you’re looking for an established and reputable company, it doesn’t get much better than that. And their Sonicare Airfloss is proven to remove 5x more plaque than just brushing alone.

There are hundreds of different water flossers on the market, and many aren’t cheap. It can be difficult to know whether you’re spending your money on a quality product or a scam.

As more and more products hit the market, it is so important to do your research to ensure you are getting a well-priced product that will actually deliver results.

In this Philips Sonicare Airfloss review, we’ll unpack all the things you need to know when deciding if the Airfloss is right for you.

Should you floss before or after brushing?

When it comes to dental care, flossing is often the forgotten friend. Whilst we all know we should brush our teeth twice a day, flossing is often neglected.  And this is despite the fact that there are a huge number of benefits of flossing. Put simply, brushing alone does not clean the spaces between teeth.  As a result, food and saliva cause a buildup of plaque in those forgotten spaces.  Sounds grim, right? But it gets worse. Just having that built-up plaque can lead to tooth decay and inflamed gums (also known as gingivitis, or gum disease) which is where flossing comes to the rescue.

Dental professionals recommend flossing from the age of twelve, but don’t answer the age-old question: when should you floss? Floss before or after brushing? Even professionals weighing in on the matter can’t seem to agree. This article is here to help.
