Activated charcoal is a natural way to remove tartar and plaque it uses can date back to over 3000 year, long before we had toothpaste to brush our teeth. It has a number of medical uses such as removing poison and toxins from our body ,whitening teeth getting rid of bad breath and removing tartar which we will be looking at.
Capable of removing up to 10 times more plaque than a manual brush, whilst achieving 2 times more surface contact, the Gum Care brush head makes use of all the sonic vibrations passed out by the brush handles motor. It whips toothpaste into bubble and drives them deep between your teeth and along the gumline for gentle and effective cleaning.
Sorry I’m a bit confused. Are you saying you’re not pleased with our review because we didn’t include the voltage information and whether or not the toothbrush will work while traveling abroad? Not being snarky, just trying to get a better idea of why you’re disappointed with this.
For many years, people have been using baking soda as a cleaning substance for teeth. It is slightly abrasive so it pries and files nasty stuff from the surface of enamel. All you need to do is take (only) one tablespoon of baking soda. Add a pinch of salt. Then, dampen a toothbrush and dip it into the mixture. Clean your teeth as you usually would and rinse thoroughly.
Why: The DiamondClean Smart has some handy sidekicks—its connected app and smart sensor suite. It keeps track of where you brush, where you miss, and where you need to pay more attention. It removes up to 100% more stains in 3 days,** removes up to 10x more plaque* and leaves gums up to 7x healthier in 2 weeks*.
DiamondClean – The DiamondClean Sonicare toothbrush head is one of the most popular brush heads in the Sonicare range. It is able to remove up to 7 times more plaque than you would be able to clean using a standard manual toothbrush. This brush head is so effective at removing plaque and stains that within just 1 week of beginning to use this brush head, you can expect to have removed 100% of the stained from your teeth. There are no other brush heads on the market today that can offer you such great results when it comes to cleaning your teeth for a whiter smile.
That includes the way it looks (although you can just leave the decorative stickers off), and the way its brushing timer (which you can’t turn off) functions and sounds. If you’re an adult and considering this brush, you really must use the link below to learn more about it so to make sure you want to put up with these features.
That’s a big deal. It gives you a much wider range of styles to choose from. And these heads are more convenient to change (a nice feature if you share a brush), and make it easier to keep things clean.
Dental hygienists must graduate from an accredited dental hygiene program based in an institution of higher education. Hygienists must also be licensed in the state in which they practice. Requirements for licensure vary from state to state, but generally include successful completion of an accredited entry-level program, successful completion of the written National Dental Hygiene Board examination, a state or regional clinical examination and a state jurisprudence and ethics examination.

It’s up to us to move the saliva around our mouths to remineralize all our teeth rather than give the microbes hanging around our lower teeth such easy pickings for the minerals to build their plaque condos. We made a video tutorial called ‘Mouth Probiotics’ that details how to use saliva to optimize our oral health.
Readers ask us this question all the time. The truth is that a lot of brands add unnecessary features to their toothbrushes in order to increase the price. In fact, most electric toothbrushes priced $69 and up will perform more or less the same. As long as their brush strokes per minute are similar, so it will be their performance.
I’ve decided to go all-out and use a combination of electric (sonic) toothbrush and a Waterpik. I noticed that Waterpik sells a combo package that appears to be targeted at consumers like myself. Do you have any comments on the Waterpik brand sonic toothbrush?
Otherwise, you’re basically saying, “this one works better for me, for the things that I like,” i.e. it makes your mouth feel cleaner (to which I will add that you’ve provided no evidence other than “it feels cleaner to me”). That is great for you if that’s what you care most about. I think most people would prefer the brush with clinical evidence backing it up.
“My favorite electric toothbrush is from Rotadent,” says Kourosh Maddhi, a cosmetic dentist based in Beverly Hills, Calif. “It has very soft bristles, thus minimizing damage to the gum.” The brush automatically shuts off after 2 and a half minutes of use, and the charge lasts up to 3 weeks.
Q: How did the noise on the Sonicare Series 2 compare with the other Sonicare brushes you tested? The reviews on Amazon seem to indicate that it’s significantly louder and that the heads don’t fit as well.
There are certain accessories, such as charging stations and power cords, which all electric toothbrushes come with. Some models come with extra brush heads, which could be useful because eventually, you will have to replace them. But, other accessories, such as travel cases, can prove to be quite expensive and end up never being used.
In their earlier work, the researchers showed how certain mechanisms regulated by vitamin D3 help clear amyloid-beta, the abnormal protein found in sticky plaques that clog up the important communication space between brain cells in people with Alzheimer’s.
There are a number of ‘travel case’ style units, but this one is much better made than most of them. It’s also FDA registered. Note: this works well for both electric brush heads as well as regular toothbrushes. It’s designed to be for travel purposes, but you can of course use it at home too – it’s got little feet that mean it doesn’t slide around so won’t easily get knocked off the counter top. As a travel unit it runs only from batteries (2 x AAA). The UV treatment starts as soon as you close the case and runs for about 5 to 6 minutes. You should get at least a months use out of 1 set of even average batteries.
One of the main contributions of the new study is that it shows key differences between the macrophages of the Alzheimer’s patients and of the healthy controls, and that within the Alzheimer’s patients, there were differences in macrophages.
Having shiny white teeth can be a real confidence boost and there are few nicer compliments that ‘you have a lovely smile’ or ‘your teeth look great’ and what if you can achieve this without having to undergo cosmetic dentistry.
With the Sonicare line, buying a higher priced toothbrush doesn’t equate with getting a different brushing action. But there are some design and performance differences that may make a noticeable difference in your overall brushing experience.
November 14, 2017 – To keep up with new brands and changing technology, we’ve completely revamped our electric toothbrush review from 2015. This time around, we expanded our top picks from one to four to accommodate more budgets and levels of features. We also updated our methodology so that it’s consistent with current research on oral hygiene, and sent 16 toothbrushes home with a team of testers to get real-life feedback. Ultimately, we replaced our original top pick, the Oral-B 7000, with the more-streamlined Philips Sonicare 2, which is $25 cheaper and includes all the key features recommended by dentists to actually improve your brushing technique. If you’re in the market for an electric toothbrush that includes a similarly robust set of features as the Oral-B 7000, we recommend the Philips DiamondClean, which our testers found easier to maneuver, and comes with an intuitive, informative app.
“I like the Oral B Braun brush for its circumferential action on the tooth surface,” says David Tecosky, a Philadelphia-based dentist. A pressure sensor lets you know when you’re brushing too hard, and an in-handle timer pulses every 30 seconds to signal that it’s time to move to a different part of your mouth.
According to Waterpik, the Sensonic SR-3000 isn’t just a sonic toothbrush; it’s state-of-the-art technology. It does clean powerfully yet gently. The Waterpik is ideal for people with orthodontic work, as the brush heads have rounded bristles (instead of angular or flat ones). Although the Waterpik operates in only one mode, three brush heads are included: one for “general” cleaning, one for “precision,” and one for “trouble spots.” The brush weighs 6.8 ounces, placing it on the heavier side of the scale. Our testers thought the sculpted body did much to make it ergonomic. Some owners, however, find it too big to hold comfortably.
The advanced ergonomic handle gives the Sensonic a smooth and sleek look. The blue rubber grip that runs down horizontally is perfectly positioned. Whether you are left or right handed, your fingers will always rest on the grip. This is perhaps the most comfortable toothbrush that we have tested.
Tomatoes and strawberries are rich in vitamin C which is excellent for oral health. You can rub these fruits directly onto your teeth and let it sit for 5 minutes. This way the tartar buildup will soften.
If you don’t fancy rubbing vegetable glycerine on your teeth, you might prefer something a little simpler. You can rub orange peel directly onto your teeth and this will help to fight tartar building microorganisms on the enamel. You can also mash up the peel (though this may take some time) and apply it to the stained areas. Leave to rest and then rinse. You should find that this noticeably whitens the teeth.
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.
These are excellent replacement brush heads for the Sonicare toothbrush. I tried an off-brand replacement before that did not fit the toothbrush. These fit perfectly and very snug! I’ve been using it for about a week now and I’m still very pleased with my purchase. They are a little softer than I’m use to, but I don’t mind…especially when consider that an 8-pack is only $14 compared to a 2-pack of the Sonicate brand for between $20-$30! If you’re looking for a high-quality, inexpensive replacement, look no further.
“Excellent toothbrush!!!!!! I had one of these years ago. It died, then I went to an off-brand electric until it died. What a mistake. I purchased this brand again. What a difference in the way your teeth feel after brushing. Super clean. If you’re a heavy coffee drinker like I am, then you need this brush. Excellent!!!!! I don’t think it’s rough as some of the other reviewers claim. It’s an electric, and it works really well. Even if it dies after a year’s use, I’d buy another quickly. Your dentist will love you for it. And long-term, it may just save your teeth for old age. Cheaper to replace this brush than to have expensive dental work done, in my opinion. Take care of your teeth. You’ll need them a long time!! Would I purchase again??? You bet.”
The use of vinegar will slowly dissolve the calcified deposits. Therefore, yes it would remove them overtime. As would rubbing strawberries on your teeth and leave it there for 5 minutes before rinsing. They dissolve the calcified deposits with their respective weak acids, acetic acid for vinegar and citric acid for the strawberries.
Sterilized.. maybe but I hate to have to tell you it’s probably not clean in the sense most people are thinking. Soap leaves a residue that may or may not be harmful. Of course this depends on the soap your using.
Per the ADA’s recommendations, the only necessary thing in toothbrushing is a basic toothbrush that you use properly. As of September 2017, five models from Oral-B have received the ADA Seal of Acceptance (including our pick).1 But regardless of the manufacturer, powered electric toothbrushes have been shown to provide superior dental care to manual toothbrushing—they remove more plaque and reduce gingivitis at statistically significant rates.2 If you find yourself struggling to meet two minutes, if you tend to brush unevenly, or if you find manual brushing to be too much labor, upgrading from a manual toothbrush to an electric one that automates these elements would make sense.
I’m a hygienist and when I was in school all my patients had free dental care and my “student loan” paid for most of it we also went to low income schools taught kids how to floss and brush and gave supplies. So give professions some credit it’s not just professions want your money. I share my education to keep people healthy. But some info here isn’t correct. Baking soda and peroxide are fine you’re okay to use.. acidic will cause perminent damage to teeth overtime. And the scaling people cause notching and damage teeth if not done correctly I see it all the time. And you aren’t getting under the gums which is the most damaging part. So if you try you can find schools for free these students need clinic hours. SJVC is one for example. Your teeth and health are worth the time. Floss and brush. Watch youtube videos to see it done correctly. Home remedies are fine but this one isn’t accurate.
Plaque is a sticky bacteria that sticks to your teeth. When plaque is not removed through brushing and flossing, it turns into tartar. Try one of our toothpastes which reduces plaque and tartar build up.
