How Oral-B Electric Toothbrushes Better Protect Against Cavities


Brushing properly is the #1 way to prevent cavities. Oral-B® Electric Toothbrushes help make your brushing technique significantly more effective—resulting in fewer opportunities for tooth decay. Read on to learn how Oral-B technology helps you in the fight against cavities.

Types of Cavities

Smooth Surface Cavities

Decay that occurs when plaque breaks through enamel

Our oscillating, rotating, and pulsating action is clinically proven to be superior at removing plaque*—to help prevent cavities caused by broken enamel.

Root Cavities

Decay along the gum line that is more likely to occur where there is recession.

Our Pressure Sensor protects gums by slowing down or shutting off when you brush too hard—to help prevent cavities caused by gum recession.

Chewing Surface Cavities

Decay that occurs in cracks and hard-to-reach areas.

Our handle timer, wireless SmartGuide, and app guide you through a more thorough, dentist-recommended two-minute cleaning—to help prevent cavities in hard-to-reach areas.
