Using dental floss as part of your daily dental hygiene routine can help prevent gum disease by removing unseen food and plaque from between your teeth. Plaque is a thin, sticky film made of bacteria. When it builds up it can cause irritation and inflammation to the gums. Anytime we eat or drink sugary foods we are at risk of a plaque attack. Drinking a glass of water after mealtime can help to reduce the acid caused by plaque in between brushings.
For daily maintenance and to reach all those tiny spaces in-between teeth we recommend using the Philips Sonicare AirFloss.
95% of users tested experience improved gum health results in just 4 weeks! For those who find manual flossing to be too fiddly, the AirFloss helps to remove up to 5x more plaque between teeth than manual tooth brushing alone.
