One of the most basic things you can do to prevent plaque from forming is commit to a good oral health care routine. Using an Oral-B® Electric Toothbrush along with a Crest® Pro-Health™ toothpaste and antibacterial rinse — along with regular dental visits — is one of the most effective ways to keep your routine on point and plaque at bay.

Isn’t a Manual Toothbrush Good Enough?

A manual toothbrush can be an effective tool, but it can be difficult for manual toothbrushes to adequately clean between teeth, around back teeth, or in other hard-to-reach areas of your mouth. The result? Plaque gradually accumulates over time, and often leads to tartar, decay, or other dental issues.

What Makes Electric Toothbrushes Better?

  • Dentist-Inspired Round Brush Head: Inspired by dental tools, the round brush head adapts to each individual tooth, to clean deep between teeth.

  • Superior Technology: Oral-B Electric Toothbrushes pulsate to loosen plaque and then oscillate and rotate to sweep the plaque away. In fact, 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. The clinically proven superior technology of an electric toothbrush removes 100% more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush.

  • Two-Minute Timer: Oral-B Electric Toothbrushes include a built-in timer that guides you through a two-minute brushing routine to help make sure you clean all the areas of your mouth.

  • Cleaning Modes: Oral-B Electric Toothbrushes offer a varying number of cleaning modes so you can personalize your clean and achieve your brushing goals. You can also choose from a range of brush modes until you find the option that’s most comfortable for you.
