The Piccolo is a radically new flossing device that is a companion to your toothbrush. It will help prevent tooth plaque forming under teeth braces and leave you with Piccolo fresh breath.
It is the softest method of flossing available and is designed specifically to be gentle on teeth and gums, yet thoroughly brush your teeth to promote healthy teeth and gums.
It is powered by a single 1.5V AA battery (primary or rechargeable) and is fully automated.
It is quick and easy to use, and like an electric toothbrush, requires no particular hand dexterity or skill. People with poor hand dexterity such as with arthritis, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and particularly men with large hands, were considered during the design of the Piccolo dental technology.
Flossing will take between 1 to 2 minutes for your whole mouth and teeth can be cleaned from both the front and the back and is suitable for all the family and particularly people with bridgework, braces or with hard-to-access oral situations.
The Piccolo dental technology comprises a handpiece (available in 5 colours) and a replaceable tip. Inside the replaceable tip is an advancing, rotating, very soft filament that when placed between your teeth at the gumline, will pull itself between your teeth disturb plaque formation and extract debris. It does not require insertion pressure and by placing the tip at the inter-dental gap and squeezing the hand piece it does all the work for you.
The filament is grooved and has a unique action on the surface of the tooth. It gently shears the sticky bio-film from the surface of the teeth with minimal contact pressure then extracts it together with food particles. This is the only product for dental health to offer this benefit. It is unique to The Piccolo dental technology and patented world wide.
If the sticky biofilm is not removed regularly it hardens over time to become plaque.
The filament gyration covers irregular inter-dental spaces both large and small and leave you with a clean mouth, healthier gums and Piccolo fresh breath.
