Sonic Toothbrushes and Flossing Devices

Sonic Toothbrushes

Picture

Offering 30,000 to 40,000 strokes per minute, sonic toothbrushes rotate in a back and forth vibrating motion. The rapid motion is the sonic toothbrushes’ claim to fame. But ultimately, it also aims to remove plaque and keep teeth and gums healthy and clean.

For a little bit of perspective, the old-fashioned way of brushing your teeth rings in about 300 strokes per minute — if you brush properly. So over the two-minute recommended brushing time, your teeth are hit with 600 strokes … a far cry form the thousands you might get with the high-tech variety.

Ask Dr. Wynn which sonic toothbrush is right for your braces and mouth. He’s happy to recommend a solution that works for you to maintain your oral health while wearing braces, including Sonicare for Kids and the Sonicare FlexCare+. You can check out the links on our Videos & Links page for more details, and purchase one in the office.

Flossing
Flossing while having braces can be challenging, but a key component to maintaining your oral health while wearing them. We recommend both a Sonicare Air Flosser and the Platypus Flosser to use during treatment. You can purchase the air flosser in our office and order the Platypus Flosser here while reviewing directions on how to best use the flosser.
