Oral Care Product Buying Guide

 

Do you know how important our 32 permanent teeth are to our lives? They accompany us throughout our lives and cannot repair themselves.

Therefore, in order to eat good things in the future, oral care is a must!

Daily oral care is not just about brushing your teeth and using mouthwash, because brushing can only clean the surface of the teeth,

and mouthwash cannot remove the dirt between the teeth. Therefore, dental floss, interdental brush or water floss should be used for interdental cleaning,

so we select a variety of electric toothbrushes and water floss so that you can experience comprehensive oral care.

 

Sonic Vibration Electric Toothbrush

Refers to the vibration frequency of the bristles being similar to or the same as the sound waves, instead of cleaning the teeth with sound waves.

Under the vibration of sound waves, the toothpaste and saliva on the bristles produce a lot of foam in the oral cavity.

However, the volume of sound emitted by sonic vibration electric toothbrushes is usually larger.

Rotating-Oscillating Electric Toothbrush

Driven by an electric motor, the friction between the bristles and the teeth is used to achieve the cleaning effect.

Generally, the higher the frequency of brush head rotation, the higher the price.

Some low-priced electric toothbrushes cannot even replace the brush head. In addition, it should be noted that if users have gum sensitivity,

they should pay attention to the fact that the electric toothbrush may rub the gums and cause discomfort.

Smart Shopping Tips for Electric Toothbrushes:

Toothbrush head

Like ordinary toothbrushes, users should choose the softness and hardness of the bristles that suit them. If the bristles are too hard, they may cause oral injuries. The brush head of an electric toothbrush needs to be replaced every three months to avoid the growth of bacteria, but at the same time, it is necessary to pay attention to the cost of replacing the brush head.


Charging Method

There are rechargeable or battery-type electric toothbrushes on the market. Rechargeable electric toothbrushes are suitable for home use and can save battery costs. The battery-in electric toothbrush does not have a charger, so it is more suitable for travel.


Mobile App

Some models support a dedicated mobile phone application, which can not only remind the brushing time, but also can automatically sense and track the coverage of the brushing action to guide the user in the complete brushing process.


Oral Irrigator

Also known as dental flusher and interdental cleaning machine, it uses jets of water (or mixed air bubbles) to clean hidden parts of the teeth,

such as interdental gaps, gingival sulcus, and other places that are difficult to clean with a toothbrush.

How to Use Oral Irrigator

Before use, pour clean water into the water storage tank of the water floss, then lean your face against the wash basin, put the nozzle in the mouth, aim at the position of the teeth or between the teeth, and then start the water floss to clean the teeth with the water jet from the nozzle. Process In the middle, the nozzle should be moved slowly along the teeth to clean all the teeth and between the teeth, and the lips should be slightly closed to prevent splashing during cleaning.

After each use, the remaining water in the water storage tank should be poured out, and the water teeth should be activated to drain the remaining water, and the nozzle should be cleaned and wiped dry to prevent the growth of bacteria.

 

Smart Shopping Tips for Oral Irrigators:

Power-driven and Cordless Oral Irrigator

The water storage tank of the base type water floss is installed on the base, and the handle is connected with a pipe. The water storage tank has a large capacity and therefore a large volume. It must be directly connected to the power supply during operation. Pricing is higher than that of cordless water floss.

The water storage tank and the handle of the rechargeable water floss are designed in one piece. The water storage tank has a small capacity. It can be charged with a small charger and can be used for one to two weeks at a time. The price is relatively cheap.

 

Water column impact

The impact force of water floss sprayed by water floss is not as large as possible, but generally water floss which does not reach the pressure of 500 mmHg can not clean to the deep part of the periodontal.

 

Capacity of Water Storage Tank

The larger the capacity of the water storage tank, the longer the continuous use time. Generally, the 600ml capacity is operated under strong water pressure, and the operation can be maintained for about 2 minutes. Therefore, the cleaning may not be completed, the clean water has been used up, and the water needs to be filled again to continue cleaning.

 

Personal Nozzle

In addition to standard nozzles for water floss, there are also different types of nozzles suitable for periodontal pockets or braces and maintainers. If you share water flossing with your family, due to hygiene issues, it is recommended that you have to prepare your own water flossing nozzle instead of sharing nozzles.
