Do You Hate Flossing? This One Is for You!

Philips-Soniccare-AirFlossLet’s get real. Do you floss every day? I mean every day? I keep those floss sticks next to my computer so I can try and remember to do it but overall, I don’t, so I too hear the groans from my dentist twice a year about my lack of. Thankfully someone has come along to try and help us get more consistent with it. PHILIPS Sonicare AirFloss ($89.99 @ target.comwalgreens.com) is sort of like a Waterpik that I used to use when I had braces as a teen but not as messy with the water squirting everywhere.

How this works is that it when the tip is inserted between two teeth, you press a button and it jets a quick burst of water and pressurized air (45 mph, they claim, wha???) to dislodge any food and also existing plaque.

I was first curious as to what I own dentist would think of this but in reading the fine print on their website, they worked with dental professionals in creating this product. Phew!

So no more sore tips of fingers from floss being wound too tight around fingers or making sure you make a perfect letter C with the floss around each tooth as I now have the AirFloss. And I love that it takes about 1 ½ minutes to complete both the top and bottom teeth after brushing!

Will you be trying this one out?
