How Electric Toothbrushes Help Prevent Bad Breath

How Electric Toothbrushes Help Prevent Bad Breath article banner

Bacteria caused by plaque can lead to bad breath. When it comes to keeping your mouth fresh and clean, Oral-B® Electric Toothbrushes remove 100% more plaque1.

More Movements

Oral-B Electric Toothbrushes deliver up to 48,800 movements per minute, while a regular manual toothbrush can only deliver 300 to 600 movements per minute. That means you get superior plaque removal2 with an electric toothbrush.

Superior Technology

The unique Oral-B 3D Cleaning Action oscillates, rotates, and pulsates to break up and remove 100% more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush.

Dentist-Inspired Brush Head

Inspired by dental tools, Oral-B Electric Toothbrushes have small, round brush heads that surround each tooth to get deep between teeth and remove more hard-to-reach plaque than a regular manual toothbrush.

Two-Minute Timer

Dental professionals recommend brushing for two minutes, twice a day. Oral-B Electric Toothbrushes make it easy to brush properly with built-in two-minute timers. The in-handle timer pulses every 30 seconds, letting you know when it’s time to switch quadrants of the mouth. This helps ensure you get a complete clean every time you brush.

Special Modes

Removing plaque is critical in the prevention of gum disease. Most Oral-B Electric Toothbrushes include a gum care or massage mode that stimulates gums. In addition, the Oral-B Black 7000 includes a tongue-cleaning mode, and the tongue is where most of the bacteria that causes bad breath lives.

Oral-B App

The Oral-B PRO 5000, Black 7000, and White 7000 include Bluetooth functionality. Simply download the Oral-B app on your smartphone and connect with Bluetooth technology to get real-time feedback on your brushing habits, including reminders to floss and rinse after brushing. Not only will this help protect against bad breath, but it will also help improve your overall oral health.
