New Philips toothbrush ‘could replace flossing’
Individuals looking to avoid needing potentially painful emergency dentistry could be interested in a new invention from Philips.
According to the Independent, the manufacturer has developed a new toothbrush that reduces the need for flossing by using advanced technology.
The Sonicare AirFloss, which is available to purchase through Amazon, uses a combination of pressurised air and micro-water droplets to clean hard to reach areas.
Set for release on August 1st, the new gadget is said to remove 99 per cent more plaque than its traditional counterparts, reducing the risk of developing gum disease.
In addition, the device requires just one teaspoon of water and one minute of time to perform an effective clean, which is perfect for on the go individuals.
Cosmetic Dentistry Guide advises individuals to clean their teeth regularly with a toothpaste that contains fluoride to ensure oral health is maintained.
Antiseptic mouthwashes should also be used in a bid to remove any plaque-forming bacteria, as well as freshen breath after eating.
