Philips Sonicare, Stamford, Conn, offers the Sonicare AirFloss. Using microburst technology, Sonicare AirFloss is designed to make flossing easier while maximizing interdental plaque removal. It works by using a rapid burst of air and microdroplets that fill up the interproximal area and force biofilm out.

The Sonicare AirFloss features an ergonomic handle and an angled nozzle designed for access to all areas of the mouth. According to the company, the point and click one-button operation can clean the entire mouth in less than a minute, while using less than one teaspoon of water for two full cleaning sessions.
