Congratulations! You’ve just upgraded your toothbrush to the revolutionary Triple Bristle Sonic Toothbrush. Our dentist-designed,and patented toothbrush is a next generation toothbrush. The revolutionary design brushes all 3 sides of your teeth at once, and in 1/3 of the time as a manual toothbrush. One of the most common questions we are asked is whether or not you need to switch to a new toothpaste when using an electric toothbrush? The answer is yes!
Your Current Toothpaste May Be Too Abrasive
Every toothpaste is assigned an abrasive score. Low-abrasive toothpastes and gels are best for both electric and sonic toothbrushes. While your current high abrasion toothpaste may work well with your manual toothbrush, it can prove abrasive with powered toothbrushes. When an abrasive paste or gel is combined with the superior polishing provided by the Triple Bristle, it may irritate your gums, and wear down your enamel. Look for alternatives that have an abrasion score of 70 or lower. Our top picks include:
- Pronamel Original with an Abrasion score of 25
- Arm & Hammer Peroxicare Regular with an abrasion score of 42
- Oxyfresh with an abrasion score of 45
- Tom’s of Main Sensitive with an abrasion score of 49
- Rembrandt Original with an abrasion score of 62
- Colgate Total Original with an abrasion score of 70
These certainly aren’t the only low abrasion toothpastes out there, but they are an excellent place to begin.
How Do You Apply Toothpaste To Your 3D Brush Head
You might be wondering where the heck you are supposed to put your toothpaste on your advanced 3D toothbrush. Unlike your standard single head manual or electric toothbrush, it’s best to swish your toothpaste around in your mouth before you begin brushing. This will take a few tries to get used to, but is very refreshing. Swishing your toothpaste first will further lower the abrasion, and will evenly distribute your paste or gel. Remember, all you need is a pea-sized amount.
When Should You Brush Your Teeth?
It makes sense to brush your teeth after eating or drinking, right? While it might feel refreshing to brush your teeth after eating, not if you have consumed acidic foods or beverages. Acidic foods temporarily weaken the enamel of your teeth, so brushing too soon after consumption can damage your enamel. It’s best to wait at least 30 minutes. Some of the acidic foods you may consume regularly include:
- Soft drinks
- Foods containing vinegar
Use your new Triple Bristle 3D sonic toothbrush twice daily. Enjoy!
