Whether you are maintaining whiter teeth after a treatment, want your toothbrush to help whiten your teeth or to improve your oral health overall, Philips Sonicare can help.
Want hot white teeth in a week? Try Philips Sonicare HealthyWhite – proven to remove everyday stains in just two weeks, with regular use of the clean and white mode. This mode effectively removes stains such as coffee, tea and red wine, for naturally whiter teeth. The dynamic cleaning action also removes plaque, cleaning each tooth surface, for a brighter and healthier smile.
Want fresher breath and healthier gums? Philips Sonicare AirFloss is an effective, easy and gentle way to clean in between your teeth in just 30 seconds. It uses Microburst technology to remove plaque from in between teeth with a quick burst of air and micro-water droplets. Studies have shown that when used with a manual toothbrush, Sonicare AirFloss removes up to 99% more plaque between teeth than brushing alone and it can be used with mouthwash to enhance the overall experience of freshness and oral health benefits.
Did you know that if you brush your teeth but don’t floss, you’ll only be getting 60% of your teeth clean? This is because 40% of your tooth surfaces are in between your teeth, where bits of food can easily get caught. Flossing helps you reach in between the back teeth, which are difficult to brush. If you don’t floss bacteria can build up and cause plaque, bad breath and infection. By keeping your mouth healthy you’ll also keep your breath fresher – perfect for all those congratulation kisses!
5 top tips for healthy teeth and gums
Dental Hygienist Mhari Coxon gives us her five top tips for having a perfect smile on your wedding day…
Brush your teeth well
Brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Using a Sonicare toothbrush helps to ensure you brush well and for long enough every time.
AirFloss the teeth you want to keep
Cleaning in between the teeth is important for tooth, gum and general health. Try to clean in between the teeth once a day every day.
You are what you eat
Eating a healthy balanced diet is important for our health generally. Watch for hidden sugars in food. Honey, dried fruit and syrups are also high in sugar. It’s best to keep sweet treats as part of a meal and to drink plain water between meals.
Visit your dentist regularly and ask for advice
If no one has ever shown you, next time you visit your dentist, take your toothbrush and ask them to show you how to use it well. It really can make an amazing difference with no extra effort or time.
Don’t brush after eating
When we eat, our mouth becomes acidic for around 20 minutes. If we brush in this time, we can cause wear on our tooth surface permanently.
