The phrase "remember to brush your teeth twice a day" has been playing around our ears since young. I gotten so comfortable with brushing my teeth that I think flossing is just an extra step.
After being invited to the launch of Philips AirFloss, I got to learn from Datuk Dr Sean Paul who works in LivingWell Cosmetic & General Dentistry that flossing once everyday can help reverse the early stages of gum disease by removing the bacterial plaque.
Many had issue with flossing as they face gum bleeding in the beginning stage. According to the experts, continuously flossing everyday will reduce the bleeding and help the gum to regain its health back. Hence, Philips is introducing the latest addition to the Sonicare family, AirFloss.
The Philips Sonicare AirFloss uses microdroplet technology to make cleaning in between teeth as easy as 1, 2, 3. Not only that, it helps to maximise plaque removal and improve gum health as well.
The rapid burst of air and water from the AirFloss is directed using a nozzle guidance tip. This will ensure the targeted cleaning between teeth. Also, AirFloss enable you to floss your entire mouth in a minute! Each full cleaning session only requires one teaspoon of water or mouthwash.
Philips Sonicare Airfloss is priced at RM699, available at selected electrical stores, dental clinics and soon in branded retail outlets and on the online store www.blipmy.com.
Personally, I do think the AirFloss is really expensive for someone who earns low to middle income. However, it is possible for them to save up and invest on a tool for a long term care. Plus, it's important for us to take care of our health right?
