It is important to have good personal hygiene. Keeping our bodies clean is a step towards being healthy. Nowadays, we can use different types of toothbrushes that will help us maintain good oral hygiene. One of the most advanced toothbrushes that are available in the market today is the electric toothbrush. An electric toothbrush that you can purchase is the Sonicare that was developed by Philips.
You can purchase the Sonicare from the official website at sonicare.com. It is quite easy to use this toothbrush. All you have to do is follow the instructions below:
1. Preparations. Before brushing your teeth, you have to make sure that all your teeth have toothpaste. To do this, get a small amount of toothpaste on your finger and spread it all over your teeth. Now, squeeze some toothpaste on the bristles of the Sonicare.
2. Brushing your teeth. When you are ready, put your finger lightly on the button on the toothbrush but do not press it yet. Put the head of the toothbrush inside your mouth before you push the button so that the toothpaste won't splatter when you turn it on. The toothbrush will start vibrating.
Start brushing on one side of your mouth and work towards the other side. Do this in a circular motion making sure that you brush over your teeth and gums. After doing the front side of your teeth, position the toothbrush on the back side and work your way towards the other side. Do this until the brush stops pulsing. The Sonicare stops pulsing at around two to two and a half minutes. If you are already done brushing but the Sonicare is still pulsing, you can just push the button once again to make it stop.
3. Charging your Sonicare. When you are done brushing your teeth, just return the toothbrush to the base that came with it. The base also acts as the charger for the electric toothbrush. Make sure that you keep your Sonicare charged all the time so that you won't have to wait for it to charge before you brush your teeth.
These are the easy steps on how you can use the Sonicare electric toothbrush to brush your teeth. If you are new to this technology, you might find it hard at first to brush your teeth because of the pulsing of the toothbrush. After a few days of using the toothbrush, you will get used the sensation that it gives you. Be sure to change the head of your Sonicare after about three months. You can purchase the heads for the toothbrush on the official website. You can also find other personal care products from Philips, such as the electric razor, beard trimmer and the sonic toothbrush. Some of the accessories that are available on the website are shaving heads and brush heads.
To have the best oral hygiene, you have to visit your dentist at least once every six months so that you can have a general cleaning of your teeth and gums. Even if you brush your teeth everyday, there can still be some bacteria, plaque and tartar buildup in your teeth.
