Did you know that 31 percent of adults have tooth decay and 1-in-10 regularly forgets to brush their teeth?
It’s interesting to consider the causes of dental neglect. Is it more common for people to not understand the ramifications of not brushing your teeth twice each day, or is it that people are getting bored, and would rather do anything else than brush their teeth? If the latter is true, then upgrading your toothbrush may be just the thing to rekindle your love of the oral care experience. Explore some of the options for upgrading your toothbrush and see if any deserve a place on your bathroom sink.
It’s important to realize that even a standard toothbrush which can be bought for less than a dollar is sufficient for properly cleaning your teeth. While fancier toothbrushes will boast about superior features, the truth is that a basic toothbrush can keep your mouth fresh and healthy just as well. The goal of upgrading your toothbrush is more to make it interesting and enjoyable, which will encourage you to not skip any oral care sessions.
While these innovative toothbrushes may not be necessary for a healthy smile, they can do a lot to spice up your bathroom decor and add enjoyment to your brushing experience. Consider these three examples of next-level toothbrushes to see which is right for you.
Who needs toothpaste? You don’t if you’re using the Soladey-3 Ionic SOLAR Toothbrush. Designed in Japan, this toothbrush uses solar power to eliminate the bacteria that cause plaque and decay.
