Okay, I admit - I hardly floss. Yes, I hate flossing more than anybody can imagine and I won't do it regularly. And apparently, 63% of Singaporeans have the same thought as me and think that flossing is too time consuming. This was from a recent survey conducted by Philips and it also showed that 88% wish there was a product available that could make brushing more effective for them because there is nothing like a nice smile, coupled with a set of good teeth.
So like it or not, flossing forms a very important part of oral hygiene and to make it a more efficient and less irritating experience, Philips has introduced the Sonicare AirFloss.
The Philips Sonicare AirFloss features microburst technology that delivers air and microdroplets of water to remove plaque between teeth. This device is safe and gentle for implants, veneers, and orthodontic brackets too.
To get started, just fill up the reservoir with water.
Then quite simply, the process is all about Point and Press - place the tip of the nozzle between your teeth and press the activation button. A burst of air and water will be shot in between your teeth for an effective yet gentle cleaning. Repeat with all the other spaces between your teeth and you can be done cleaning of your entire mouth in 60 seconds, while using less than one teaspoon of water.
I have used it for about 2 weeks - that is how long one charge of the AirFloss lasts by the way - now and for me, this is the best way to floss, ever. I love how effective it is in blasting away any debris and built-up food between my teeth. And best of all, it is so easy and fun to use! So for a person who rarely flosses to one who now uses the Sonicare AirFloss daily, I think that itself is the best testament.
And if your excuse is a lack of time for not flossing, there is no excuse now because the Sonicare Airfloss is waterproof too! So it is absolutely safe to floss while in the shower - saving even much more time for busy parents.
And since the Philips Sonicare AirFloss is able to clean in-between all teeth in 60 seconds, Philips is launching the Philips Sonicare 60 Seconds Challenge!
Just head on down to the Philips Sonicare Singapore Facebook Page and click on the “60 Seconds Challenge” application to participate. Broadcast what you can do in 60 seconds that improves your life as much as the Philips Sonicare AirFloss does and submit your challenge via a write-in, photo or video.
The public will then vote on the challenge they like best (1 vote per day) and you can share your entry with your family and friends and ask them to support your challenge by voting. 10 lucky finalists will make it through to the second round, where they will then perform their challenge in video format, and submit to Philips.
The videos will be posted on the Facebook application and be subjected to a public vote. And the last one standing will walk away with an AWESOME Grand prize - a 60-second shopping spree at the Philips Singapore (Toa Payoh) Showroom! The winner will be given a gift box and anything that you can fit into it is yours to keep. And yes, I have been assured by Philips that the box will be of a substantial size.
But there are other prizes to be won as well - the 10 finalists will each receive one unit of the Philips Sonicare AirFloss, while one lucky voter will receive one unit of the Philips Sonicare AirFloss during each of the two phases of voting.
So if you are drooling at the thought of adding more Philips products to your home for FREE, brainstorm something that you can do in 60 seconds or less that can improve your health like the AirFloss can and submit your challenge at the Philips Sonicare Singapore Facebook Page now!
