How to Keep Your Electric Toothbrush Effective For A Longer Duration

Thorough brushing of the teeth is the first step in achieving a healthy dental care routine. Over the past few years, the increase in dental technology has helped in providing people with various features that will make their oral care journey a simpler ride. 

An Electric Toothbrush not only helps in eliminating more plaque than a manual toothbrush but also offers more comfort & ease in usage. Additionally, one can select the toothbrush that best suits their individual oral care requirements, giving it a personalized touch. 

While an electric toothbrush offers effective care, it is essential to ensure proper maintenance of your dental solution for long-lasting effectiveness. In this blog, we'll take you through some of the important points that you must consider to keep your oral care solution functioning for a long time. 


1] Replace the Brush Heads: It is recommended by dentists and dental professionals to replace the toothbrush heads after every 3-4 months. This will result in providing more efficiency in removing plaque by thoroughly cleaning every area of the mouth. Regularly replacing your brush heads will also help in maintaining the hygiene levels of your electric toothbrush. 

If the bristles of your brush have frayed out, it's your indicator to replace it with another one. ORACURA provides you with various brush heads for you to replace in order to keep your oral care solution as new as ever. 


2] Replace the Product's Spare Parts: ORACURA's sonic electric toothbrushes are supported with a warranty period to ensure a higher life span of your oral care solution. However, in case of any damage or misplacement of any of the spare parts, one can always replace the same to ensure the smooth functioning of their electric toothbrush. This will ensure that your oral care solution is always up and running. 


3] Avoid Brushing Too Hard: A large number of people believe in the notion that brushing harder & for a longer duration will help them in attaining a cleaner & thorough cleanse. This is absolutely false! In fact, brushing too hard can actually cause more harm than good to your teeth. It can damage the enamel i.e. the outer layer of the teeth and also cause various gum diseases. 

Moreover, brushing vigorously can cause the bristles of your toothbrush to fall out of place, causing severe damage. Thus, it is always advisable to brush gently and use a toothbrush with soft bristles to ensure healthy teeth and gums. 


4] Store it Properly: If you want your electric toothbrush to stay functional for a long duration, then it is important to store it properly after every use. Make sure you rinse your toothbrush thoroughly before storing it in a clean, dry place. 

Do not keep your toothbrush very close to other oral care products as the germs can spread across very easily. It is always advisable to keep a safe distance between multiple oral care solutions to maintain proper hygiene levels. For a more detailed explanation, here's a blog on how to properly take care of your oral care solutions.   

Follow the above-mentioned points to keep your electric toothbrush effective & useful for a longer duration.
