HOW TO BRUSH YOUR TEETH
Prevent plaque buildup and improve your oral hygiene with an Oral-B electric toothbrush designed to help you brush the dentist-recommended 2 minutes, cover every area, and brush with the right amount of pressure.
HOW CAN I KEEP MY TOOTHBRUSH CLEAN?
After brushing, rinse your toothbrush with water, let it air-dry, and store it in an upright position. Avoid covering toothbrushes or storing them in closed containers, which can cause the growth of bacteria.
WHEN SHOULD I CHANGE MY TOOTHBRUSH OR BRUSH HEAD?
Dentists recommend changing your toothbrush every 3 months or sooner if the bristles look frayed because worn-out bristles will not clean as well. Several Oral-B brush heads feature indicator bristles to help track replacement time so you can better maximize your oral health.
BENEFITS OF STANNOUS FLUORIDE TOOTHPASTE
Oral-B toothpastes are formulated with Stannous Fluoride to strengthen teeth, protect against cavities, and it is also an effective antibacterial agent for a healthy smile today and protection against future damage tomorrow.
BENEFITS OF FLOSSING
Remove plaque and prevent tartar buildup with the right floss—Oral-B Glide Floss is expertly designed to slide up to 50% more easily in tight spaces to deliver a superior clean.
FUN WAYS TO TEACH KIDS TO BRUSH THEIR TEETH
