The latest in high-tech oral health dental products has been launched this week by Philips Electronics. It’s the Sonicare AirFloss — a new way to remove bacteria and plaque through a combination of air and water.
By shooting blasts of air and water at the teeth and gums Philips claims the Sonicare AirFloss will remove up to 99% more dental plaque than brushing alone. Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the Airfloss can send water and air at speeds up to 45 mph — cleaning the entire mouth in less than a minute.
As reported by GizMag, electronic flossing doesn’t come cheap. The Sonicar Airfloss’ suggested retail price is $89.99.
Here’s the promotional video on the device –
