Using AirFloss Pro

Interdental cleaning with Philips Sonicare AirFloss Pro takes three simple steps

  • 1. Fill

    Use with water or antimicrobial mouth rinse for targeted treatment

  • 2. Point

    Hold down for continuous automatic bursts, or press and release for manual burst mode

  • 3. Clean

    Micro-droplets of air and liquid disrupt and remove plaque

Mode of action

Philips Sonicare AirFloss Pro uses compressed air to accelerate micro-droplets of water (or mouthwash) between teeth. The micro-droplets of air reach speeds of 111 mph/180 kph. At this speed the micro-droplets are hard and can physically disrupt plaque from the interproximal space.

In addition to the physical disruption of plaque, the compressed air and water-droplets also help push the plaque out from between teeth. While the air and micro-droplet technology is effective, at these parameters it remains safe and gentle for the user.

New triple burst technology

Philips AirFloss Pro delivers three bursts of air and liquid micro-droplets to disrupt and remove plaque along the gumline and in hard-to-reach areas.

A new and improved high performance nozzle

Features a softer tip for better comfort and a wider spray to cover more interproximal tooth and gum surface.

How does the use of Philips Sonicare AirFloss Pro compare to oral irrigators?

Philips Sonicare AirFloss Pro is not an oral irrigator. Below are a few facts about the differences:

  • AirFloss Pro uses the mechanical action driven by high-speed liquid droplets to remove plaque. It does not work by the same principles of using water to flush throughout the mouth as oral irrigators
  • AirFloss Pro is designed specifically to clean in between teeth as an added advantage over brushing. Oral irrigators are designed for flushing the whole mouth, not specifically for cleaning in between teeth

Clinical support

In addition to a significant number of development studies, the following studies have been conducted as of September 2014 to validate the performance of Philips Sonicare AirFloss Pro:

  • Plaque and gingivitis clinical vs floss (Sept 2014)
  • In-vitro study measuring the removal of plaque biofilm by Philips Sonicare AirFloss Pro
  • 2-week in-home use test vs. floss and Waterpik
  • Clinical and non-clinical safety assessments

Further studies are progressing focusing on comparisons to floss and oral irrigators.

The science behind Philips Sonicare AirFloss

In vivo and vitro studies into the efficacy of Sonicare AirFloss

Our in-vitro testing of plaque removal was performed with water, Listerine and Breath Rx. All showed at least 99.98% plaque removal from treated areas. With regard to our clinical study, consumers tell us that they are significantly more satisfied with the AirFloss Pro experience when used with a mouthrinse. We know that it’s this combination of efficacy and compliance that will ultimately lead to results and the formation of a healthy habit. We therefore chose to use antimicrobial mouthrinse with the AirFloss Pro in the clinical.
