I very rarely floss. I know I should, but I don’t do it often. After switching to this brush, dentists have not told me that it looks like I don’t floss anymore! I am NOT saying you can avoid flossing by using this brush, but I take it to mean that it does a way better job than my old manual toothbrush ever did
In short, you get the brush head, these work very well! Only less money. I would recommend these for the compatible Sonicare toothbrush. Thanks to this, I don’t have to buy expensive official brush head products anymore.
At about 4.5 ounces, the Philips Sonicare 2 is easy to use and comfortable to hold. It arrived with a bit of a charge, but the manufacturer still recommends an overnight charge before use. Fully charged, it will run for two weeks. As with most of its rivals, its warranty lasts two years. While there are many brush heads in the Philips range, only one comes with the Sonicare 2. Blue “reminder bristles” change to white as they wear down. This color change serves as a reminder to replace the head, and we think it’s an excellent feature.
Mixing them will cancel the cleaning power of the vinegar since mixing them causes a chemical reaction that eliminates both the vinegar and baking soda. Mixing them creates a type of salt (not table salt), water, and gas (bubbles).
Dentists recommend brushing at least twice a day, so it’s important that you have the right toothbrush to help you get the job done right. Your toothbrush should be replaced every three months, so you have plenty of time to experiment, but we’ve found some of the best ones to get you started.
You know that super clean feeling your mouth has after a visit to the dentist? It’s because they’re able to thoroughly clean your teeth in ways that your manual toothbrush just can’t. Enter the TAO Clean Aura Clean Sonic Toothbrush and Cleaning Station. Using state-of-the-art sonic technology and 40,000 tiny brush strokes per minute, the TAO Clean Aura Clean Sonic Toothbrush and Cleaning Station safely and hygienically cleans your mouth by dislodging debris from your teeth and gums, and efficiently polishing your teeth. Not only that, but because it automatically shuts off after (dentist-recommended) 2 minutes of brushing, your pearly whites are actually getting 80,000 total brush strokes every time you brush your teeth! Do you think you could do 80,000 brush strokes in 2 minutes?
“Toothbrushes are as individual as automobiles. Everyone has a preference. I personally use a Sonicare DiamondClean toothbrush,” says John Comisi, a dentist based in Ithaca, New York. “I like its small diameter toothbrush head, with a 2-minute timer. It comes with a very convenient travel case. Overall, it is probably the electronic toothbrush I recommend most.”
The war on battery life is important because there are still some big gaps between leading manufacturers. There are certain toothbrushes that take 24 hours to charge fully, while others take 12 hours. Once fully charged some devices can last up to six weeks when used twice a day. In comparison, there are still devices that will not last half of that time.

Dental hygienists generally receive their education through colleges and universities, dental schools, junior colleges, and technical schools. The minimum requirement for state licensure of dental hygienists is an associate degree, which takes about two years to complete. The conclusion of any dental hygiene program is a clinical externship, which allows students to apply their skills and knowledge in a dental care setting through supervised patient experiences.

Oil pulling also does wonders. I am a firm believer that there are natural ways to aid in clean and healthy teeth instead of all the chemicals dentists use. My teeth are cavity free and clean and shiny from oil pulling. If you haven’t tried it, I suggest you look it up and try for a couple weeks. Amazing results. No harm in trying, right?
You would be surprised at how many natural home remedies there are for plaque removal. For example, did you know figs are great at fighting bacteria and other nasties on teeth? You just have to eat a handful (three or four) figs all at the same time. Chew them up slowly and deliberately, to give them as much exposure to the gums and teeth as possible. The chewing will kickstart the salivary glands and, as saliva contains antibacterial properties, this is only ever a bad thing for plaque and tartar accumulations.
This is the main focus of this page. Trying to determine which model seems to make a best (most reasonable) choice in terms of effectiveness, functionality, reliability and so forth, while also keeping cost to a minimum.
We could not find any independent studies comparing toothbrush models or brands, and all the ones tested for the fluid dynamics aspect are Sonicare brushes, which are all 31,000 movements-per-minute brushes. Other brands have toothbrushes that move faster, slower, and at roughly the same speed as this. Though the fluid dynamics effect exists, remember that it’s secondary to actual bristles scrubbing your teeth and gums.
Roughly speaking, sonic toothbrushes are somewhat similar to regular ones. Their purpose is to quickly move back on forth over the exterior of the teeth in order to scrub away plaque and food debris. Where they differ, however, is the speed of movement with which they operate.
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.
If you do not press the Flexcare+ to hard against your teeth it feels like a really professional cleaning tool at the dentist in a positive way, 2 times every day. Buy!! I will be very surprised if you ever regret it. Most probably you will think, why did I not buy this before and why does not more people know about it as it is such a difference. This product is crazy good I would say and I am picky about products and Philips have made me disappointed several times last 10 years, but not this time. It is an amazing product.
Tracy: What if a person has no dental insurance and has kids that she needs to spend her money on, so there is no way she can afford to go to a hygenist or dental professional? What suggestions do you have? Should that person just do nothing and hope for the best?
For the jock itch part (its fungal) I take a large cup like from 7-11 and use as much Apple Cider Vin as you want with warm water and pour it on the area.. after a few treatments in the shower, issue goes away.
Soaking your toothbrush in antibacterial mouthwash for ten minutes after your illness ends may kill germs that might cause a return of the illness; however, it is a better idea to simply replace the toothbrush.
Single-tufted brushes are a tool in conjunction with tooth brushing. The tooth brush is designed to reach the ‘hard to reach places’ within the mouth. This tool is best used behind the lower front teeth, behind the back molars, crooked teeth and between spaces where teeth have been removed. The single- tufted brush design has an angled handle, a 4mm diameter and rounded bristle tips.
Hun, there are free dental clinics out there… For free.. They take place annually, you just have to research them. If your issues are extremely bad, go to a hygiene school. The one locally offers discounted dental care. I volunteer for the free clinics every chance I get.
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.
As we noted earlier in this guide, brush heads are a matter of personal preference of size, shape, and material. A number of third-party brands make replacement heads for Oral-B toothbrushes that tend to be much cheaper. There are some reports in user reviews that these aftermarket brushes sometimes do not fit or are of a lower quality than branded brushes, and the heads tend to be rated lower. Pay close attention when shopping for brush heads to what is “Oral-B” vs. “Oral-B compatible.”
Speaking of your tongue, use it regularly to feel around and locate any plaque. Our tongues are great ‘plaque detectors’, and we can use them to find any spots we have missed or have not brushed effectively.
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.
We’d trust WaterPik to make a quality electric toothbrush. As compared to Sonicare you are more limited in brush head styles. However, the small pointed Interdental Tip is a design not duplicated in the Sonicare line and could be a valuable aid for some.
This is one of Oral-B’s high-end level electric toothbrushes. As such it comes with a lot of shiny and gadget-like options that are meant to make brushing a fun activity. As a matter of fact, this model is so advanced, it comes with its own app available for iOS and Android. Bluetooth connectivity allows the user to track their daily usage and get real-time feedback. The Focused Care feature, as Oral-B call it, is meant to aid users to implement the specific brushing instructions given by their dentist.
A person could conclude that the best brush to buy is simply the one that can best overcome any damping effect. And due to the constant improvement of products, that’s most likely to be the newest, latest model available.
hahahahahaha. my dentist recommends Sonicare, and I’ve had two in my lifetime now (I’m on my second one, which is almost 5 years old and going strong – the one before that lasted I think 7 years?) worth every penny, especially when purchased at Costco.
To become a dental hygienist, you’ll need either a 2- or 4-year degree in dental hygiene. Most programs are two years long and lead to an associate’s degree. They are offered through community colleges and technical colleges.
I have never experienced electric tooth brushes until i come across this post. Anyhow i feel they are doing great in arriving at the corners, which would be useful than manual brushing. Your share truly helped me to come up with good knowledge. I generally lean toward the
Simple to replace, click on and off and the ever so useful reminder bristles, that change from blue to white over 3 months are present even on the for kids range of heads, so you or even your child can monitor when it’s time to replace.
