The Best Way To Great Oral Care


A good oral care regimen is essential for the upkeep of your teeth and gums. And the best way to remove decay-causing material is by brushing and cleaning between your teeth twice a day.

The basics begin with brushing twice a day. The size and shape of the brush head should allow for a comfortable fit in your mouth and easy reach to all areas. The brush should also fit comfortably in your hand so you can maneuver it easily.

Using a toothpaste that contains fluoride — which helps protect teeth from decay — is another thing you can do for great oral care.

If the bristles are frayed don’t hesitate to replace the brush. And think about replacing your brush after you’ve been sick. Always replace the brush-head every three months.


Great smile

And, of course, visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and oral exams.

Daily flossing between teeth is another good way to remove plaque and food particles between teeth and under the gum line, areas where a toothbrush can't reach.

Maintaining proper oral hygiene can be beneficial to your overall health, so eat a balanced diet and brush and floss daily for an attractive smile.

Plaque: Your Teeth’s Worst Enemy

Every day, your teeth get covered with a sticky film of bacteria called plaque. It's a natural occurrence. After every meal or snack, some bacteria reacts with sugar in the foods to produce acids that can attack and weaken tooth enamel — causing it to break down and open the door to the development of cavities.  

If plaque is not cleaned away on a daily basis, by brushing and flossing, it can eventually harden into calculus or tartar. Brushing and cleaning between teeth become more difficult when tartar collects above the gum line. Gum tissue can also become reduced, swollen and/or may bleed. This is called gingivitis.

The best defense is to remove plaque daily before it has a chance to build up and cause problems. Brushing removes plaque from the large surfaces of the teeth and, if done correctly, just under the gums. So you can help avoid the effects of plaque if you make sure to clean, brush and floss your teeth thoroughly with the right tools every day.

The Better Tool For Oral Care

Knowing that plaque can be the enemy of healthy teeth and gums, choosing the right tools to clean away plaque is a must. Spinbrush ProClean with its dual-action, oscillating brush head and bristles remove up to 70% more plaque in hard-to-reach places than a manual toothbrush.* And Spinbrush battery-powered toothbrushes costs just a few dollars more than a manual brush, and a fraction of the price of many other power toothbrushes.

The Best Way To Get Terrific Results With A Spinbrush Battery-Powered Toothbrush

After you apply toothpaste onto the bristles, put the head of the brush into your mouth. Then turn on your Spinbrush battery-powered toothbrush. This keeps the toothpaste on the brush and not flying off all over your bathroom.

Then simply place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle against your teeth and gums. Gently glide the bristles back and forth against the teeth/gum surfaces, without pressing hard, for about 2 minutes while brushing your teeth.

Brush the outer tooth surfaces, the inner tooth surfaces and the chewing surfaces of the teeth.

Use the tip of the brush to clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, using an up and down stroke.

And don’t forget to brush your tongue to remove bacteria and freshen your breath.

Children under age 3 should use under adult supervision. Do not submerge in water, the unit can be damaged.

Pay Attention To The Brush-heads

For dual-head brushes such as Spinbrush ProClean and Pro Whitening, change the brush-head every 3 months or sooner if the brush is worn or parts are loose. Failure to do so could lead to brush-head breakage, generation of small parts and possible injury. After every use, remove the brush-head and rinse thoroughly with water. Do not use the brush with damaged or loose parts.

For SONIC brushes, change the brush-head every 3 months, or sooner if the brush is worn or parts are loose. Failure to do so could lead to brush-head breakage, generation of small parts and possible injury. Rinse the brush-head thoroughly with water after every use; but, do not remove the brush-head to rinse. Do not use the brush with damaged or loose parts.

And for Kid's brushes, replace the brush every 3 months. Failure to do so could lead to brush-head breakage and that could cause an injury. After every use, rinse the brush-head thoroughly. Do not use the brush with damaged or loose parts.

To that end, we offer replacement heads for all Spinbrush ProClean, Pro Whitening, and ProClean Recharge toothbrushes. ARM & HAMMER Tooth Tunes, Spinbrush Globrush, Spinbrush Kid's and Spinbrush Swirl do not have replaceable heads.
