5.0 out of 5 stars High end teeth cleaning, 13 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Philips Sonicare HealthyWhite Toothbrush and Rechargeable Airfloss Double Pack (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This combo set of Sonicare toothbrush and Airfloss offers a high-end teeth cleaning experience. However, the Sonicare experience is considerably different from other models, such as Oral B, and not everyone will necessarily prefer it. The Airfloss is an excellent option for people who really don't like flossing, although inter-dental brushes probably deliver an overall better clean.

Airfloss
I've been using an Airfloss now for more than a year, and it's resulted in a dramatic improvement in my oral hygiene. It works by pumping a short burst of air and water through a nozzle at high pressure, which clears out any material between the teeth. It takes about a minute to go all round the mouth, leaving it tingling and fresh. After a couple of weeks, I stopped using Sensodyne toothpaste, and haven't had trouble with sensitive teeth since.

Sonicare
The Sonicare is a very high speed electric toothbrush which lets out a high-pitched whine, though I'm fairly sure that, despite the name, it's the movement of the brush and not the sonics that actually clean the teeth. Like Oral B models, it vibrates differently after a certain period to tell you to move to a different part of the mouth. The toothbrush has two settings, the second being longer with a polishing phase for the front of the teeth after the main phase. The experience is much smoother and subtler than Oral B brushes, but Philips doesn't offer a floss-action head. Philips claims a dramatic improvement over manual brushing, and my experience bears this out. Compared with other high end electric toothbrushes, Philips doesn't make any claims, and my experience suggests that they're more or less equally good.

Overall, this is a good way to acquire both products, but it's the Airfloss which really makes a difference compared to others on the market.
