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 145 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great while it works. Makes flossing so easy. Even if you have used floss it still seems to find more. Unfortunately they seem to have a limited life, but fortunately less than the 2 year warranty. Either the switch stops working or the battery fails to recharge. 08 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Even though I always dental floss every night really well, but I have a gap in the gum next to the crown which dental floss does not always remove any food. After using this, it was an effective method of blasting out any food deposit. 29 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple and effective I really like this device, which is really simple to use and effective. I use it twice a day (at least) and it really works well. The first one I had stopped working after about 10 months, but John Lewis replaced it without any questions and so this was excellent. 27 April 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Okay for showering your teeth, but useless as a flosser I returned this item as it was fairly useless as a flosser. The whole point of a flosser is to clean between the teeth and those hard to reach places a brush can't get to. For that it needs a fairly strong directional jet of water and/or air. I've been using a panasonic waterpik which has been fine, but I thought I'd give the sonicare a try. Mistake. The 'jet' wasn't really a jet, more of a 'cloud' of water which sprays all over your teeth, so it's useless for cleaning between teeth, also the head is really badly designed with a 'dish' shape preventing you pushing the tip into the gaps between teeth, bizarre. Finally, the little compartment that you're supposed to fill with water to make it work, is literally the size of a thimble, compared to a sherry-glass size on the panasonic, so the sonicare always runs out before you've finished spraying water over all your teeth. Wouldn't recommend to anyone. Gone back to my Panny. 27 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is so much better than floss! This is one gadget that won't end up in the cupboard. It is so simple to use just move from tooth gap to tooth gap and shoot. The clean feeling starts straight away and using mouth wash means a fresh taste too. Have now bought several as gifts. 26 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Second time - fingers crossed The first one just stopped working after 2 months, from researching it seems to be a problem, the battery just won't hold charge. Anyway great service from JL and got a replacement straight away. When it works its great and works well. We shall see if this new one hold out! 20 April 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by It broke within the the first 6 months For the brief period this product worked for me I was really impressed. I had healthier gums in two weeks and I felt great. However it stopped working one day I tried re-charging it thinking it was the battery but that never worked. 28 March 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Philips Sonicare HX8211/02 Electric Airfloss System The principal is great but the reservoir is very small and what happens if the flimsy cover breaks? 23 March 2016
