How To Take Care Of Your Electric Toothbrush

Daily brushing and flossing are the important measures that one needs to take for oral health in order to prevent various diseases such as tooth decay, cavities, gum problems, and more. However, are our manual brushes and thread flossers sufficient to ensure absolute cleaning of the mouth? In today's fast-paced modern lifestyle, it is essential to upgrade one's dental regime and switch to advanced oral health products.

Always remember to cleanse your teeth & gums with the best electric toothbrush and dental water flosser® to whisk away all the stuck food residues and germs from hard-to-reach corners of the mouth. These modern dental products are easy to use, more convenient, and offer utmost efficiency along with higher plaque removal than regular manual brushes and flossers.

Having said that, it is equally important to take proper care of your modern oral care solutions. In this blog, we'll give you a detailed explanation of how to properly take care of your electric toothbrush.

1] Rinse The Brush Head: After brushing, always ensure to rinse your toothbrush with plain water and thoroughly clean the same before storing it. Rinse the brush head with water and run your fingers over the bristles. This will ensure that there are no leftover food residues stuck on your toothbrush.

2] Don't Over Brush: Brushing too hard or over brushing can actually damage the teeth and can wear down the enamel i.e. the outer protective layer of the teeth. It also results in gum recession and sensitivity in the teeth. However, along with impacting one's oral health, over brushing can also harm the health and condition of your electric toothbrush.

The excessive pressure on the toothbrush due to over brushing can lead to the bristles getting frayed out more quickly. This will make the electric toothbrush less effective in cleaning the gums & teeth thoroughly. Thus, it is always recommended to brush gently using an electric toothbrush with soft bristles.

3] Replace Brush Heads: It is advisable to replace your electric toothbrush heads after every 3-4 months. This helps in maintaining the overall hygiene level of your dental care product, thus ensuring a better cleanse with every use.

ORACURA® offers easily accessible separate brush heads for their electric brushes that an individual can purchase to keep their smart brush as new as ever for a long duration.

4] Proper Storage: It is extremely important to ensure the proper storage of your electric toothbrush. Always remember to NOT store multiple dental care tools very close to each other. This is because germs and bacteria can spread very easily from your oral care products. Thus, always maintain a safe distance between your smart brush or dental water flosser®.

Along with this, make sure that you store your products in a cool and dry place. Store the toothbrush in an upright position in a place where it can air dry itself. One should also wipe the base of their electric toothbrush with a clean cloth at regular intervals in order to keep the product hygienic and fresh at all times. 

Make sure you purchase the best electric toothbrush for you and your family depending on your preferences, requirements, features needed, budget, and more.
