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 as residual germs may be lurking.

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, the bacteria react 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.

So it stands to reason that if this plaque is not cleaned away on a daily basis, by brushing and cleaning, it can eventually harden into calculus or tartar. Brushing and cleaning between teeth becomes more difficult when tartar collects above the gum line. The gum tissue can become swollen 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. Flossing removes plaque between teeth. So you can avoid the effects of plaque if you make sure to clean and brush your teeth thoroughly with the right tools every day.

The best way to get terrific results with a SpinBrush™.

Here’s the good news: Even though the SpinBrush™ is a power brush, it’s designed to allow you to brush as you would with any other toothbrush.

After you apply toothpaste onto the bristles, put the head of the brush in your mouth. Then turn on your SpinBrush. 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 and brush back and forth in short (tooth-wide) strokes.

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.

Pay attention to the brushing heads.

Dental professionals recommend replacing your toothbrush every three months or earlier if the bristles become spread out. For brushes with replaceable heads, we recommend the toothbrush head be replaced after three months of use, due to normal wear. For brushes with non-replaceable heads, we recommend the toothbrush be fully replaced after three months, due to normal wear. We recommend you replace the brush or brush head anytime you’ve had a cold or have been ill since germs may be lurking among the bristles.

To that end, we offer replacement heads for the SpinBrush™ Pro-Clean™ . Spinbrush™ For Kids do not have replaceable heads.
