STAMFORD, Conn., April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- For the 75% of Americans who struggle to floss consistently, getting a full mouth clean is as easy as going from "zero-to-sixty" with the NEW Philips Sonicare AirFloss Pro. Philips Sonicare, the #1 dental professional-recommended power toothbrush brand in the United States, is unveiling a faster, easier and more powerful way to clean between your teeth. The Philips Sonicare AirFloss Pro is an interdental tool that cleans your entire mouth in just 60 seconds[i], and is clinically proven to be as effective as string floss at improving gum health[ii].
Rutledge Wood, seasoned auto racing analyst and host of History Channel's Top Gear and Lost in Transmission knows what it takes to go from zero to sixty.
