EasyStart – This is a feature introduced by Philips and their Sonicare series. It basically helps new sonic toothbrush users to get used to the high-frequency vibrations by slowly increasing them over time. This is great if you are not used to 31,000 brush strokes per minute. Which you will not be used to if you have been using a manual toothbrush till now.
The researchers say more work is needed to find out if these two different transcription patterns of inflammatory genes are signs of either two stages of Alzheimer’s, or even two types of the disease.
I thought maybe it was just a design difference and not a performance difference, as the gum health is not very good looking compared to the Flexcare+ and that the 31000 vibrations were what counted, but the gum care model was a big disappointment. Unpleasant noise and lower amplitude at the strokes compared to the Flexcare+ and also the handle vibrated, so more an experience like the Oral B, though I think it is still cleaning better than the Oral B.
Keep reading for some handy hints and tips on avoiding plaque build ups altogether. This is the single best way to approach the problem, because prevention is always cheaper than the cure when it comes to dentistry. If you can stop plaque and tartar from building up in the first place, you have a much better chance of keeping all of your teeth healthy.
NOTE: This is an older sonic model. It is still being sold, and there is still warranty on it. However, we can in no way guarantee how long this will last for. Philips may decide to finally remove this item from the shelves. For now, people seem to love it, so it still stays in production.
As with most of the toothbrush models we tested, the battery life indicator on the Pro 1000 is vague: It lets you know when the battery is full (a continuous green light for five seconds after you remove it from the charging base) and when it is “low” (a red flashing light after turning the brush off). Oral-B does not specify how long it takes to get the brush to a full charge, but you can charge it every day without significantly affecting the battery’s capacity as long as you deplete it fully once every six months.
It’s important to note that the DiamondClean is a sonic model, which can tickle or be uncomfortable for sensitive teeth. If you have sensitive teeth, go for the Oral-B 8000 would be our recommendation, even though we didn’t love its usability as much as the DiamondClean. (We actually prefer the rubber grip of the Oral-B 8000 over the smooth handle of the DiamondClean.) But the DiamondClean is definitely easier to hold and maneuver. In fact, our tester who found the DiamondClean ticklish reported that “actually for maneuverability the narrow head of the DiamondClean came in quite handy. It was easier to get around the back teeth than the bigger Oral-B head.”
Then you have another small negative thing is that if you open your mouth too much during brushing, it might splash out considerable amount of liquid from mouth at the mirror, but that is just a sign how efficiently the brush works and it is the same that if you touch your teeth with the plastic part of brush head it feels quite drastic in head, but that is also a proof of the good amplitude and high efficiency of the tooth brush.
I don’t remember that movie but that’s pretty funny. I really don’t know about the acidity and your tooth enamel. I would think that the flavor would not be appealing, though, to brush with. Do you rinse it before brushing? I think if you’re rinsing that would be ok. I’ve also heard about acidic foods and enamel erosion so it might be not be the best idea to brush with a vinegar sprayed brush. That’s just my opinion if it’s something you’re concerned about.
A Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Dental Hygiene offers a more thorough introduction to the field of dental science by including two years of clinical experience into its curriculum. The clinical component of the degree will train students in oral health assessments, oral disease examination, oral cancer screening procedures and filling and periodontal dressing removal and placement. Some B.S. programs may cover topics such as the administration of anesthetics and dental filling material placement. Some courses address dental science theory and may include:
For use with Advance, Elite and Essence Series handles only. E-Series: Slim, angled neck, tapered brush head, and contour-fit bristles; Gets into hard-to-reach areas for optimal results. NEW: e Series brush heads are also compatible with Sonicare Advance Handles
Thanks for your very helpful articles on the Sonicare models. They were really useful for cutting through the fat so to speak. I ended up purchasing the series 3 gum health. Unfortunately I didn’t realize that the user can’t disable smart timer or quadpacer on this model if desired (others with mode button can disable quad pacer). I also didn’t realize that the toothbrush shuts off after two minutes (smarttimer). Not sure if i just missed out on this, or if it needs to be added. Not a huge problem; i may actually need these timers to brush properly for at least two minutes.

This phase is continuous throughout treatment, allowing the dental professional along with the patient to monitor the patients oral health status and assists in recognizing the need for change or amendment to the previously formulated treatment plan, according to the patients specific needs. Treatment is monitored using accurate periodontal charting and clinical observation of hard and soft tissues by the dental professional. The results of the periodontal charting and clinical observation dictates what follows the non-surgical periodontal phase. The three generalised outcomes that may result are essentially;
These are great affordable replacement brush for your Sonicare electric tooth brush! They fit and work well.. the gap in between the brush and handle is normal for moving components.. the bristle on brush are soft and has a replacement reminder when the color of brush fades over time.. the different color on the base of the brush is very helpful so you don’t get it mixed with someone else toothbrush!
If I still had insurance that allowed a dentist, I would go in a heartbeat! Unfortunately, that isn’t going to happen. I am lucky to have enough money for gas a week before I get another check. I will do anything not to get bad teeth until I can get on my feet again after I finish school.
Storing your toothbrush upright (bristles up, handle down) after use is very important. This allows the water to drain from the bristles easier and all the water and particles collect at the bottom of the handle of the toothbrush. Also you may notice that a nasty scum collects at the bottom of containers that do not have a drain at the bottom, and you do not want your bristles touching that scum that could cause your bristles to collect mold and bacteria.
The Oral-B Pro 1000 is many consumers’ first choice of an electric toothbrush. It is inexpensive, it cleans well, and it is easier to use when compared to most high-end models that come with smartphone apps and Bluetooth connections. As all other Oral-B models, it is oscillating, so that makes it a bit slower when compared to our top choice – the Sonicare 2 Series. When tested, we found the Pro 1000 is also not as gentle on the gums. We believe that to be due to the harder bristles on the brush head.
This affordable toothbrush is available in soft or medium varieties, depending on your preferences. The “soft” variety has firm bristles, so it is a hybrid between soft and medium. The colors in your pack of six toothbrushes will vary. This pack is one of the “most wished for” items on Amazon and has outstanding reviews online. Colgate also has great specialty toothbrushes, like the Colgate Max White Full Head Toothbrush with whitening benefits and the Colgate 360 Enamel Extra Soft Health Sensitive Toothbrush for sensitive teeth.
This is what happened to me as well, sounded great at first but then all of these people are saying that they regret their choice of becoming a Dh. But then again, I’m sure every occupation will have the same type of opinions about it.
These are professional dental tartar scraper they come with three or more pieces the mains ones are a dental pick which cleans particles between the teeth it works like a dental floss, the dental scraper is a metal hook which is used for scraping the plaque and tartar from your teeth and under your gum and last we have the dental mouth mirror which is used to help you see difficult area in the mouth. These tools are not easy to use so it advisable to watch videos on YouTube how to use them yourself , or have someone with experience use them on you . Also use a tartar softener such as the two discussed above before using the pick and scraper to make the job easier.
From the guide- Oral-B Pro 1000, $65. This brush is functionally and physically identical to our Deep Sweep 1000 pick, save for being a different color, and was our previous pick. If you can get it cheaper than the Deep Sweep 1000, this is a good brush to get.
You can also control tartar and plaque build-up with a hydrogen peroxide based mouthwash or cleanser. If you cannot find this type of product in your local pharmacy, it is pretty easy to knock a batch together yourself. Just take one tablespoon of antiseptic mouthwash and add three tablespoons of (3% only) hydrogen peroxide solution. You must make sure that the substance you use is of a suitable concentration or you could damage your teeth.
If you have any questions or concerns whatsoever about the health of your teeth, you need to take them to the one person who is perfectly poised to provide an answer or a solution. Your dentist is there to give you as much advice as you need, whether it is about treatments, pain relief, dealing with cavities, or pressing ahead with things like braces and dentures.
There are several commercially available toothbrush sanitizers on the market. Although data do not demonstrate that they provide a specific health benefit, if a consumer chooses to use one of these devices, the Council recommends that they select a product cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Products cleared by the FDA are required to provide data to the Agency to substantiate cleared claims. Examples of claims that have been cleared by the FDA for these products include:
The right toothbrush for you depends on your personal preference—do you want a classic brush that costs a couple bucks at the drugstore? Or do you want to shell out for an electric toothbrush that does some of the work for you? According the American Dental Association, they both work equally well to clean your teeth. But a powered toothbrush might help you ditch some of your bad brushing habits—like not going for long enough and failing to hit hard-to-reach spots—and a 2014 Cochrane review of gave powered models a slight edge over the classic toothbrush.
To accomplish this with a Sonicare, you simply need to: 1) Pick a brush that has Sonicare’s best brushing action (as discussed above), so this task is as easy for you as possible. 2) Use the brush until that point when you have effective cleaned your teeth (stop when your teeth are clean, not necessarily once the two minute timer has signaled).
There are no surprises here; brushing is the number one treatment for plaque prevention. If you brush properly after every meal (wait half an hour after eating), you can significantly reduce your chance of developing unsightly tartar patches. You need to be brushing for three minutes, with an even amount of pressure, and covering every part of your mouth.
Picked up this unit a few weeks after a dental cleaning. After 5 1/2 months of using it the tartar that would normally be on the back of my lower incisors was virtually nonexistent. The dental hygienist probably spent half the time she normally does scraping and picking. She noticed a big difference.
You should expect to spend between $50 and $150 on a good electric toothbrush. In most cases, the $50 electric toothbrushes are the best option, even when you buy a model made by one of the two most popular brands: Philips Sonicare and Oral-B. The most expensive models often have more brushing modes, travel accessories and sometimes smartphone apps, but it’s unlikely you’ll use more than the normal cleaning mode, regardless of what you spend.
Also, on that note, you can disinfect BETTER with first soaking in vinegar, than soak it in hydrogen peroxyde, but dont use them together (dont mix them in a container together, it could turn into acid…)

The other problem with the Cochrane report is that though it’s conducted by a nonprofit, it includes in its survey studies that are conducted by companies testing their own toothbrush products. Unsurprisingly, we’ve never found a study published by P&G’s Oral-B that has found its electric toothbrushes inferior to another brand; the same goes for Philips’s Sonicare. This doesn’t necessarily apply to every study, but it applies to a gross majority of the toothbrush research available. But caveats about biased research aside, scientists do consistently find that an electric toothbrush is significantly better at removing plaque and reducing gingivitis in the average person’s mouth.
Sterline also offers the widely marketed UV clean technology that is supposed to kill 99.9% of bacteria on brush heads. Arguably, once the brush heads are stored inside the case, the UV lights are activated and leftover germs are eliminated. This is something that we are not completely sold on. It has nothing to do with the brand, but with the technology itself. There is very little academic research to support these claims, and frankly, we could not find any that is reliably associated with well-known faculties.
Counter oscillating – Is the last type of electric cleaning motion that toothbrushes come equipped with. The idea of this design is to allow each tuft of bristles to rotate in the opposite way of its neighbor. For instance, while one tuft may be rotating clockwise, its neighboring tufts could be going in a counter-clockwise direction.
Dentists diagnose and treat problems with patients’ teeth, gums, and related parts of the mouth. They provide advice and instruction on taking care of the teeth and gums and on diet choices that affect oral health.
I have an ancient and long-ago discontinued Oral B Sonic Care Complete brush that I refuse to give up. I have duct tape on the band and have to pay a fortune for the proprietary brush heads on Amazon but honestly, no matter what other Oral B brush I buy, nothing compares to the old tried and true. So many new ones make my head vibrate from the inside out or the brush heads are wrong shape for my mouth. I really hate when any company discontinues a good thing.
Eat apples and melons. Eating an apple or some melon directly after a meal will help to clean your teeth naturally and prevent plaque from building up on the surface of your teeth. This will also help to keep gums healthy and prevent them from bleeding.
1. Allow for the AC adapter to fit flat against the wall as opposed to sticking straight out. It looks awkward permanently sticking out of a bathroom outlet. I wound up purchasing and installing an outlet with USB ports so I can skip the adapter and plug the charger directly through the USB port. It is a little less conspicuous.
We also looked at each toothbrush’s warranty. Most of the models we tested have two-year warranties, though the Health HP-STX and the Pursonic S500 only have one-year warranties. The warranty reflects the projected life of the electric toothbrush, particularly the battery, which holds less charge as it ages.
