Product Profile: Philips Sonicare AirFloss Pro and FlexCare Platinum

Technology improves efficacy of oral health aids.

Inspired by oral health professionals, Philips designs products that are easy to use, clinically proven, and preferred by patients. Two recent Philips Sonicare innovations are the AirFloss
Pro interdental cleaner and the FlexCare Platinum power toothbrush.


Getting patients to adopt a consistent flossing routine is a common challenge, and the new Philips Sonicare AirFloss Pro is designed to help inconsistent flossers improve their gingival health. At the press of a button, AirFloss Pro delivers three bursts of air and liquid micro-droplets to disrupt and remove plaque along the gumline and between teeth, effectively removing up to 99.9% of plaque biofilm in the treated areas.* Additionally, the AirFloss Pro has been shown to reduce gingival bleeding and gingival inflammation after just 2 weeks of use.**

AirFloss Pro has been completely redesigned to be more effective. It features a new high-performance nozzle with unique flow characteristics and a triple-burst setting, which bursts three times interproximally for a more effective clean. Inconsistent flossers also will appreciate that it takes just 60 seconds to achieve a deep interdental clean.


FlexCare Platinum includes Sonicare’s best interdental brush head and an intuitive pressure sensor to deliver enhanced performance and better cleaning between teeth. The InterCare brush head has extra-long bristles, along with bristles of alternating lengths, for a deep reach between teeth and improved gingival health. The innovative pressure sensor gently pulsates the handle when too much pressure is applied to help guide proper technique. In addition, FlexCare Platinum offers three intensity settings and three modes, including the new 3-minute Deep Clean mode for an exceptional clean. As for results, FlexCare Platinum removes a significant amount of plaque interproximally and in hard-to-reach areas, greatly reducing gingivitis and gingival bleeding.

** When used in conjunction with a manual toothbrush and antimicrobial mouthrinse in patients with mild to moderate gingivitis. AirFloss is designed to help inconsistent flossers develop a healthy daily interdental cleaning routine. For more information, visit
