The Piccolo is a radically new interdental cleaning (flossing) device that is a companion to your toothbrush.
It is the softest method of interdental cleaning available.
It is powered by a single AA lithium 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 arthritis, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy etc.) and particularly men with large hands, were considered during the design process.
Cleaning between your teeth will take between 1 to 2 minutes for your whole mouth, and teeth can be cleaned from both the front and the back.
The Piccolo is suitable for all the family and particularly people with bridgework, braces or hard-to-access oral situations.
How it works
The Piccolo 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 thread itself between your teeth to disturb plaque formation and extract debris.
This self-threading does not require insertion pressure, just place the tip against the interdental gap, squeeze the handpiece and 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 biofilm from the tooth surface with minimal contact pressure and extracts it together with food particles.
If the sticky biofilm is not removed regularly, it hardens over time to become plaque.
The gyrating filament covers irregular interdental spaces both large and small, leaving you with cleaner teeth, healthier gums and fresher breath.
