We are now offering the Sonic-FX™ Sonic Toothbrush because it is a better way to brush your teeth. Why do we think you should use a sonic toothbrush instead of a regular toothbrush? Because a Sonic-FX sonic toothbrush:
#1 Does Not Grind Down Tooth Enamel
There are three things that contribute to the wearing down of tooth enamel:
- Using anything but SOFT bristles when you brush.
- Applying too much pressure when you brush.
- Brushing when your tooth enamel is soft. Tooth enamel gets “soft” for about 30 minutes after eating or drinking anything acidic. This is why the ADA now says to wait for 30 minutes after eating or drinking anything except water before you brush – so you don’t erode your tooth enamel.
Sonic-FX brush heads are made with SOFT bristles but even more importantly than that, with a sonic toothbrush, you do not need to apply any pressure when you brush. Just place the brush head lightly in contact with your teeth. The 33,000 plus vibrations per minutes clean and polish your tooth enamel without eroding it.
#2 Eliminates Ergonomic Strain
Because the sonic toothbrush does all the work, you do not need to apply pressure or make rapid brushing motions. This is a great benefit for people suffering from any kind of ergonomic strain in their hand, wrist or forearm. Plus, the Sonic-FX brush handle is very light weight.
#3 Is More Sanitary
The UV Sanitizer sanitizes brush heads after every use. It also stores them in such a way that they are not touching anything that could transfer germs.
#4 Encourages Optimal Brushing Time
We are advised by the ADA to brush our teeth for two minutes total, 30 seconds per quadrant. The Intelligent Timer on the Sonic-FX provides a signal to change quadrants every 30 seconds and shuts off after two minutes – thus encouraging optimal brushing time.
#5 Gives You Cleaner, Whiter Teeth
The 33,000 brush strokes per minute ensure that no part of your tooth surfaces are missed and that plaque and staining substances are polished away on a daily basis, before they have a chance to diminish the beauty of your smile.
#6 Contributes to Healthier Gums
With a sonic toothbrush, plaque is removed and gums are stimulated much more effectively than with a regular toothbrush – both of which contribute to improved gum health.
As you can see, there are many benefits to be received by brushing with a sonic toothbrush.
