Chairside Connection: Introducing Philips Sonicare cordless power flosser

Aug. 11, 2022
The new cordless power flosser from Philips is 150% superior at removing plaque than string floss. Why wouldn't you recommend it to your patients? Dr. Mark Hyman sure does.

Do you take advantage of some of the amazing research-based technology that helps us treat our patients better? This wasn’t always available to us in the earlier days of dentistry. Now we need to stay aware of what's available and what will work best in the hands of our patients.

A great example of this is the new Philips Sonicare cordless power flosser. Dr. Mark Hyman recommends it to many of his patients, uses it himself, and explains why it's such an excellent product.

It's 150% superior at removing plaque than string floss, and it covers nine times more surface area than string floss. It works well even if patients don’t have the water stream set absolutely perfectly because there are four streams of water. It has customizable settings so patients can make it as comfortable as possible for themselves.

Dr. Hyman says it’s a good investment for dentists to buy and give to some of their patients.
