Philips Sonicare HX8211/02 Electric Airfloss System

Product information

For those who don’t floss consistently, the Philips Sonicare AirFloss is an easy way to start cleaning between teeth. AirFloss can be used with mouthwash or water and features unique air and micro-droplet technology to help remove plaque in hard-to-reach areas.

Improve gum health
Most adults suffer from gum disease at some point in their lives. Thankfully, AirFloss is clinically proven to improve gum health in just 2 weeks. Its unique cleaning action removes hard to reach particles of food and plaque trapped between the teeth, preventing gum disease, and gently stimulates the gums.

Clever technology
The innovative AirFloss uses Philips' breakthrough Microburst technology that applies a quick burst of pressurised air and micro-water droplets to clean deep between teeth where a toothbrush can't reach. The AirFloss nozzle has a guidance tip to ensure targeted cleaning between teeth.
Once you line up the nozzle, simply press the button and quick, targeted bursts of water will be released automatically as you move the tip along your gum line, allowing the tip to settle between each tooth momentarily, cleaning between each tooth in turn. It's so simple, the AirFloss cleans between all teeth in less than 30 seconds.

Professional cleaning
Developed together with dental professionals, the Philips Sonicare AirFloss gently and effectively improves oral health. Microdroplets of water are accelerated by pressurised air to disrupt and remove plaque in between your teeth. And with a two year warranty from Philips, you can trust this technology with perfect peace of mind.

How to use:

  • Fill the reservoir - It just needs two teaspoons of water or your favourite mouthwash for two full uses
  • 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 you teeth for an effective yet gentle clean
  • Repeat - Place the tip of the nozzle between the next set of teeth and repeat, all the way to the back teeth
  • Rinse Airfloss - To clean Airfloss after use, simply remove the nozzle and rinse under water

Key Benefits:

  • Activation is as simple as a touch of the button
  • Provides easy access to all areas of the mouth
  • Much more ergonomic and handy than bulky oral irrigators
  • Charges for daily use for up to two weeks
  • Guidance tip glides along gum line until the tip settles in between teeth

Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product Does what it says. A powerful jet of air and water blast the debris in the tight gaps between teeth that a toothbrush can't reach. Much easier than flossing. Makes a noticeable difference to gum health and a reduction to bleeding gums when brushing in about a week. Could do with a larger water reservoir. 08 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The Tender Trap? For those of us with closely packed teeth, where trapped food debris can cause extreme discomfort, this device shifts what the toothbrush is generally unable to do, even if it is battery/electric powered. Simple, quick and very effective, the only problem is the life expectancy; this is the second purchase, the first having lasted less than 4 years with the handle replaced once by Philips FOC, the result of a gradual split in the plastic seam below the button, hence only four rather five stars. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job well This is my. Second one, the first damaged in a fall. Otherwise great, especially for close teeth that are almost impossible to floss. It gets in between and leaves the teeth feeling really clean. 17 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does what it is supposed to do... and does it well. This has met our expectations. It cleans between the teeth and can get where flossing can't. It's also much quicker than flossing. Changing heads is a little awkward because the head fits extremely snuggly in to the body of the hand held bit. It takes quite a bit of force to remove the head and it's important to pull it outwards in a straight line so as not to snap it. If it wasn't for this slight issue (which could present a problem for a frail person) it would get 5 stars. 17 November 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not sure how effective The advertising prompted me to buy this product but after 4 weeks, I am really not clear about its efficacy. I used it (together with a Sonicate brush) prior to recently visiting my dental hygienist who commented that it was not removing debris from between teeth as would have been expected. It might be just a bit gimmicky and certainly some of the web reviews lead to the same sort of conclusion. 15 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Would recommend trying. I like it. Very pleased with this product. Advised by hygienist to try an airfloss system as I found it difficult to use other flosses. Pleasant to use and so much quicker. 04 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Works really well. Well designed product, easy to fill, easy to use and very effective. Due to the nature of water flossing it is a little messy but if it wasn't I doubt it would be as effective. I don't use it with mouthwash so it is easy to clean up afterwards as it is only water. I was a little concerned that because it was rechargeable it wouldn't be as effective as those that plug in but it does the job and isn't too noisy to use late at night when there are other people in the house. As it is new I can't comment on how reliable it will be as there seems to be a lot of reviews that suggest they stop working, but as it comes with a two year guarantee I hope they are in the minority. 07 October 2015
