How often should I brush?
We often hear the question how often should I brush my teeth. The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth at least twice a day.
Ever wonder why there is a benefit to brushing twice a day vs. once?
Every time you brush your teeth, you are helping to remove food and plaque (a sticky film that forms on your teeth and contains bacteria). After you eat a meal or snack that contains sugar, the bacteria can release acids that attack tooth enamel.
Repeated attacks can break down tooth enamel and lead to cavities. Plaque that isn't removed also can harden into tartar, making it harder to keep teeth clean.
Did you know you can actually brush too soon?
In choosing when to brush your teeth, you might also consider your diet. If you've eaten an acidic food or drink, avoid brushing your teeth for at least 30 minutes. These acids weaken tooth enamel, and brushing too soon can remove enamel. If you know you're going to eat or drink something acidic, brush your teeth beforehand.
In addition to brushing your teeth, the American Dental Association recommends that you:
- Floss daily
- Eat a healthy diet and limit between-meal snacks
- Replace your toothbrush every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed
- Schedule regular dental checkups

Most people have no clue how much gross stuff is hiding on your toothbrush.
The one item that is supposed to clean your teeth and keep them safe from plaque and other harmful things might have substances on it that can cause several mouth diseases. But there are ways to keep your toothbrush clean from all of these things. Some of these things include:
Clean your brush. You should thoroughly rinse toothbrushes with potable tap water after brushing to remove any remaining toothpaste and debris, also it’s recommended that you soak your toothbrushes in an antibacterial mouth rinse.
Store the brush properly. Leave your toothbrush in an upright position and allow it to air dry. Don't store the brush in a closed container because a damp environment is more conducive to the growth of microorganisms. If more than one brush is stored in an area, keep them separate to prevent cross-contamination.
Buy a new brush often. Toothbrushes should be replaced at least every three to four months or when bristles become frayed and worn, whichever comes first.
Don't share! This seems like a no-brainer, but a large proportion of spouses admit to sharing toothbrushes, meaning that they are also sharing the bacteria on those brushes.
Get a new brush if you've been sick. Any illness that can be transmitted through body fluids should warrant separation of the toothbrush of the infected individual. After being sick replacing your toothbrush is always wise, as the germs can residually keep infecting you again and again.
Wash, wash, wash! W
ash your hands after using the toilet and prior to using your toothbrush

Here are ten fun facts about your teeth that you should know about.
- First, is that the top layer of enamel on your teeth is the hardest part of your entire body.
- Second is that your teeth start to form before you are even born. Milk teeth or more commonly known as baby teeth start to for while the baby is still in the womb, however they normally start to show when the baby is 6-12 months old.
- The third fact you should know is that a human mouth consists of four different types of teeth which include incisors, canine, premolars, and molars. Each tooth plays a part in cutting, tearing and grinding our food so that we can swallow with ease.
- Fourth is that humans only have two sets of teeth in their whole lifetime. There is baby teeth and permanent teeth. Once you have your permanent teeth take care of them. Those are the only ones you have left.
- Fifth, no two people have the same set of teeth, just like your fingerprint your teeth are unique. So learn to love your teeth because they are unique to you.
- Sixth, did you know that over a lifetime your mouth produces over 25,000 quarts of saliva? To put this visually, that’s enough to fill two swimming pools. Saliva has many uses, some includes helping with digestion, and it helps protect your teeth from bacteria in your mouth.
- The seventh fun fact is that the average person spends 38.5 days brushing their teeth over their lifetime.
- Eighth, many diseases are linked to your oral health, including heart disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes.
- Ninth, did you know that one third of your tooth is underneath your gums? This means that two thirds of your tooth is visible.
- Finally, if you happen to get your tooth knocked out, put it in milk and hold it in your mouth. By doing this you are helping your tooth survive longer, and make sure you see a dentist right away.

The Electric Toothbrush
Electric toothbrushes are exactly what they say they are; they are toothbrushes that use electric power to move the head of the brush. The first electric toothbrush was created in Switzerland by a man named Dr. Philippe-Guy Woog.
Many dentists recommend the use of electric toothbrushes because they believe them to be more effective than regular toothbrushes. This is because some electric toothbrushes can perform up to 40,000 strokes per minute compared to about 300 that a human can perform.
Current electric toothbrushes run on low voltage power sources which means under 12v. Some of the new toothbrushes have rechargeable batteries, where the user places the toothbrush in a charging station when not in use.
Most of the current electric toothbrushes come with a timer that after about two minutes it will signal the user by either buzzing or even sometimes interrupting the power supply for just a moment.
On top of the timer most electric toothbrushes have a visual LCD screen that not only give the user a timer and encouraging signs such as happy faces.
A typical electric toothbrush consists of about 5 brushing modes which normally include regular clean, whiten, low intensity – medium intensity, massage, and polish.
There are many different models in a variety of colors. Most come with a rechargeable batteries and replaceable bristles.
An electric toothbrush can cost anywhere from $45 to approx. $200. But just like a normal toothbrush it will need maintenance. This includes new heads for the toothbrush which generally can cost between $10 and $35 per pack. Also most toothbrushes require AA batteries which can cost $2 to $5 per pack. This may sound like a lot but in the end the user will receive a much better result.

A product that is used several times a day has a history that not many could have ever imagined… that’s right it’s the toothbrush.
The toothbrush was first invented in approximately 3500BC, which was just simply a twig with an end that was frayed into fibers. This was called the “chewing stick.”
In China in the year 1600 they invented a toothbrush made of hog bristles. Following that, in the year 1780, an England man by the name of William Addis invented a toothbrush that the handle was made from cattle bone, while the bristles were made from swine hair.
The toothbrush looks that we have come to know today was invented by an American man named H.N. Wadsworth in 1857 who was then followed by, Dr. Meyer Rhein who patented a three-row toothbrush of serrated bristles with larger tufts. The bristles were replaced with synthetic shortly after.
In 1938nylon brushes were created with plastic handles. Nylon bristles are less abrasive to both teeth and gums. Daily tooth brushing habits became popular after World War II when US soldiers were returning home and continued to brush their teeth. Brushing their teeth was a mandatory practice for all men serving.
Most toothbrushes that are made today are composed of 25,000 bristles in groups of 40 tufts, and the most commonly sold color is blue.
It is now recommended that brushing teeth for approximately 3 minutes will give the proper dental hygiene. And in January 2003 the toothbrush was selected as the top invention that Americans could not live without according to the Lemelson-MIT Invention Index.

Choosing the Perfect Toothbrush
With so many specialty toothbrushes on the market, how do you choose the perfect brush for you? If you are serious about oral health, invest in an electric toothbrush. Children with baby teeth and adults with extensive restorative work alike can benefit from the intense cleaning an electric toothbrush offers.
Best Electric Toothbrush for Children: Sonicare For Kids
Since children have smaller teeth and mouths, oftentimes traditional toothbrush heads are too big to clean individual teeth. Instead, try Sonicare For Kids, an electric toothbrush designed especially for kids. This toothbrush features a timer, multiple brushing settings, and an ergonomic handle for children’s small hands.
Best Electric Toothbrush for Adults: Sonicare FlexCare Plus
Regular toothbrushes don’t quite get that deep clean feeling. Adults who want a dentist-quality cleaning every day should try Sonicare FlexCare Plus. The bristles are designed to reach back teeth, behind teeth, and in between teeth, which leads to a deeper clean. An interval timer helps you dedicate a proper amount of time to each quadrant of your mouth so you get a whiter smile every time you use it. Sonicare FlexCare Plus has one of the highest user ratings: 92/100.
Best Electric Toothbrush for Braces: Waterpik Ultra Dental Water Jet
Kids and adults with braces know how difficult it is to clean food that ends up between teeth and brackets. Waterpik makes a line of electric water flossers that use water jets to clean hard-to-reach places. Waterpik is up to three times as effective as regular floss and up to five times as effective as a regular toothbrush.
Best Electric Toothbrush for Crowns/Periodontal Disease: Rotadent
Rotadent electric toothbrushes use a 360-degree rotating head with ultra-thin filaments to clean the greatest surface of the tooth and the gum line. The bristles are always in contact with the tooth surface, resulting in an efficient cleaning. They are gentle enough to be used with restorative and cosmetic work and periodontal disease.
Best Electric Toothbrush for Implants: Emmi-dent
Emmi-dent electric toothbrushes use ultrasound technology and special nano bubble toothpaste to clean deep inside gum tissue. The brush oscillates 84 million times per minute, which make the bubbles explode and remove stains. Emmi-dent even kills bacteria around implant anchors deep within the gums.

Philips Sonicare has added one more toothbrush to their arsenal of pearly white cleaning machines. Well, maybe it isn’t so much an addition, as it is an upgrade to their very popular FlexCare model electric toothbrush. The Philips Sonicare Flexcare Platinum has gotten an upgrade and an a facelift, and our teeth couldn’t be more ready.
Once you get started brushing the Sonicare FlexCare Platinum, just let the brush guide you. The pressure sensors will alert you if you are brushing too hard, while the Quadpacer and Smartimer prompt you to move to different parts of your mouth, for an overall better and more thorough brushing experience.
While we have never been let down by Sonicare toothbrushes in the past, the FlexCare Platinum is no different. It is a well rounded toothbrush that offers a new brush head that is guaranteed to get in deep and sweep out that dirty mouth of yours. That said, we’re actually the most disappointed with the FlexCare’s price. Certainly these toothbrushes last a good long while but for the price, it would have been nice if the FlexCare Platinum included a few more bells and whistles. In comparison, the Sonicare DiamondClean retails for just $20 more now and includes a USB charging case and glass, at almost the same price-point. That said, the FlexCare does come promising a battery life of 3 weeks, which means that most travelers won’t need to to have a USB charging case for charging on the go anyway. It’s also important to note that the FlexCare offers a more traditional design than the Sonicare Diamond clean, and it is also geared towards gum care with its specialized brush head. That said, when it comes down to your teeth, both brushes offer superb care. However, the DiamondClean offer a more sleeker and more modern design , and it also comes with more premium accessories.
Price gripes aside, the Sonicare Flexcare Platinum is an excellent toothbrush with a very modest, but much needed facelift from its predecessor. For $179, it’s as if you are getting a dental hygienist’s cleaning at home everyday.
Better yet, Buy it at realtoothbrushdeals.com for $149.99!
Buy it NOW! at realtoothbrushdeals.com!
The Good: The Sonicare FlexCare Platinum’s facelift includes improved dedicated buttons on the brush handle that is complimented with a porcelain-like finish. New and improved brush heads make this a plaque killing machine.
The Bad: For the price, it would have been nice if Philips had included a few more extras.

Once you go Sonicare, you never go back. That is because after brushing with Sonicare, brushing with a manual toothbrush just doesn’t give you the same satisfaction as with brushing with an electric toothbrush. I’m no stranger to Philips Sonicare line of electric toothbrushes, having used them for several years at different price points. Their latest is the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean, the Cadillac of electric toothbrushes.
In the Box:
- 1 Sonicare DiamondClean Toothbrush
- 2 DiamondClean brushheads -
- Dual charging system which includes a charger glass and USB charging travel case.
The Sonicare DiamondClean Toothbrush is the ultimate cleaning machine for your mouth and is the top tier brush amongst the rest of the Philips Sonicare line of electric toothbrushes. There is no denying that the DiamondCare has a similar look and specs to the Flexcare. However, having used the Flexcare for 3 solid years before it recently died, there is no denying that this brush works and looks a whole lot better.
The DiamondClean feels absolutely wonderful to hold in your hands, like gentle porcelain that begs to be held and cradled. Whomever was in charge of designing this absolutely gorgeous toothbrush certainly deserves an ‘A’ for making toothbrushes sexy.
The DiamondCare has some unique features like a dual charging system that enables charging in a glass (yes, a real glass). It also comes with a smart portable USB travel case. glass. Lets circle back to the glass for a moment. The glass is a fully operational drinking tool and not some type of magic trick. Just place the glass on the charging base, and place the toothbrush in the glass, and the toothbrush inside the glass will charge. Don’t worry, you won’t get electrocuted if you use the glass to rinse your mouth. This is a unique design feature that I have never seen before and it is certainly very smart. Furthermore, the USB travel case means you’ll never have an excuse not to have fresh breath. You can even charge your toothbrush from your laptop’s USB port! So there is no worrying about bringing along an adapter to charge your tooth brush. That said, the travel case doesn’t offer any sort of ventilation, so be sure that your DiamondClean is dry before taking it on the road with you or you might end up with a stinky or slimy brushhead.
Besides for its 2 unique charging capabilities, the DiamondClean offers 5 different modes of cleaning: White, Clean, Sensitive, Polish, and Gum Care. The only feature it lacks compared the the FlexCare Plus is the Massage feature. The Smartimer and quadpacer makes sure you get the allotted time for a thorough brushing without missing one piece of enamel in your mouth. Furthermore, the DiamondClean feels great to hold and was surprisingly ergonomic. And not only does it make my mouth feel clean but it also looks great sitting on my sink.
While many would scoff at such a pricey toothbrush, the DiamondClean does a phenomenal job at what it does best – cleaning your teeth. My favorite mode is ‘white’ and in a few days I actually did notice that my teeth got whiter and felt like glass against my tongue. Would a cheaper Sonicare do just as good of a job? Sure it would, but all the extra bells and whistles certainly makes the DiamondClean much more attractive. You know what they say, go big or go home and when it comes to good teeth – and you shouldn’t go cheap on having pearly whites. The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean retails for $219.99 but is currently available for just $169 on realtoothbrushdeals.com
The Good: Philips has brought sexy back to the toothbrush. Unique glass cup charging capabilities. USB charging case is super convenient. Solid product that performs when it comes to keeping your teeth and gums clean.
The Bad: You have to cycle through all the modes to get back to the one you want if you accidentally push the button just once. Could be a bit pricey for some compared to other models in the Sonicare line.

NEW Released in 2103! Sonicare FlexCare Platinum toothbrush
Turns out, there are three different ways to brush your teeth. Who knew?
That’s the case with Philips’ new Sonicare FlexCare Platinum toothbrush. It has “Platinum” in the name, so you know it means business. Specifically, it’s capable of 31,000 brush strokes per minute. Since it’s kind of hard to wrap your head around a number like that, Philips helped to put it into perspective – one minute with their toothbrush packs in as many brush strokes as a whole month of doing it the old-fashioned way.
As for those three different ways to brush your teeth, three modes are packed into the Platinum. Clean focuses on plaque removal, while White removes stains on teeth and helps to brighten and polish. GumCare provides two minutes of Clean brushing, plus an extra minute of gentle massaging for your gums. You can also adjust the intensity settings (low, medium, and high), and the toothbrush will alert you if you start brushing too hard and inadvertently damaging your teeth.
Even the bristles are specialized. Thin light green bristles get plaque between teeth, while the dark green bristles take aim at plaque near the gumline. White bristles handle the broader surface of the teeth, while the blue bristles, as always, fade away when it’s time to buy a replacement head.
You can also buy the Platinum with a UV sanitizer to keep the brush itself clean, and the brush has a three-week battery life between charges.
The Philips Sonicare FlexCare Platinum electric toothbrush will be available in stores this August, selling for between $180 and $200. Your Best online deal is www.realtoothbrushdeals.com for $149.99

It has been a while that i have been thinking to have some kind of electric tooth brush. Which one is the best? However, so far I have not seemed any product that really makes me feel like wanting to have it until I read the review for Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus Rechargeble Toothbrush. I have been doing some researches about electric tooth brush. Sometimes, the brand claiming that they have some new technologies but I really do not see how is it effective in cleaning our teeth. For Philips Sonicare FlexCare Toothbrush really caught my attention during my researches. In this article, I’m going to lay out all the pros and cons of this electric toothbrush compare to other models we can find in the market, the extra features offered and testimonial of the user who had used this toothbrush. Besides I would like to let you know as well where can we buy Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus Rechargeble Toothbrush in a discount price.
Sonic Wave Movement Patent
You might ask, “What is so special about this toothbrush? After all, it is just a toothbrush.” I have the same assumption as you do. Apparently, Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus Rechargeble Toothbrush is using sonic wave to bubble and clean the teeth and gum. This technology is even been patented so it is unique to Philips and no other manufacturer can use it. What is seem to be more interesting to me is the claims of the manufacturer that the sonic wave movement of the toothbrush can also clean the gingivitis and stimulate the gum.
Different operation mode
Another main effects claimed by the manufacturer of Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus Toothbrush is to prevent gum bleeding and recession. What this means for the user is that your teeth will be healthy, your gums will be a lot healthier, and most likely you will feel the difference in 2 weeks time.
There are 5 operations mode in this model, Clean, Gum care, Refresh, Sensitive and Massage. So far most of the users find that the instruction is clear and the operation modes come in handy.
Extra Features – UV Sanitizer
Philips Sonicare FlexCare Plus Rechargeble Toothbrush set is coming with a UV Sanitizer. This will definitely help to keep the toothbrush clean and ready to be used all time round. Some other electric tooth brush has been offered in a lower price but without the UV sanitizer. So I would say this is a plus point for Philips Sonicare Flexcare plus.
Ease of Travel? Not so much.
With the hard travel case, we can bring it while travelling. However this electric toothbrush is still a little bit bulky for travelling but just nice for home use. If travelling is an issue I would suggest another model which has similar features but much portable, the diamondclean model. The battery life time for this model also improved as compare to previous model. But I think battery life won’t be a big issue if we are to leave it to charge every day after use. i think most of us did that.
This product score 4.5 out of 5 in over 300 of Amazon customers review. Some of the user has upgraded from Flexcare to Flexcare plus. Here we go with some of the customer reviews quote. The best place on the web to buy is www.realtoothbrushdeals.com.Realtoothbrushdeals.com has the top toothbrush brands like Philips Sonicare,Rotadent,Emmi-dent and Oral B at better than discount pricing.
